Deadly TV series goes live with Easter Longleat shows
1:12pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in Warminster
Longleat Safari & Adventure Park is turning Deadly this Easter – with Steve Backshall, star of CBBC’s wildly successful Deadly TV series presenting a programme of live shows at Longleat on Sunday, March 31 and Easter Monday, April 1.
This special event marks the launch of the new Deadly Adventure at Longleat, a four-year partnership with BBC Worldwide to transform areas of the park in the style of the BBC’s hugely popular Deadly branded programmes which include Deadly 60; Deadly Top 10s; Deadly 360; Deadly Art and most recently Deadly Mission Madagascar as seen on CBBC.
He will be joined by several birds of prey that have being honing their skills as part of Longleat’s Hunters of the Sky displays.
Places for the event are free and available to visitors when they purchase a Longleat Day ticket or to holders of an Annual Pass. Tickets to the live shows will be allocated on a first come first served basis via a special ticket hotline: 01985 845544. The shows will also be relayed onto a giant screen within the park giving everyone the chance to see Steve Backshall at Longleat.
The first experience visitors will have of Longleat’s Deadly transformation is the Deadly Safari, opening this Easter, for which Steve Backshall has voiced a brand new guide. Encountering some of Longleat’s deadliest creatures, visitors will learn about the critical predator vs prey relationships that exist in the wild; discover amazing facts about the animals that reside at Longleat and be regaled with fascinating stories from Steve’s on screen adventures.
Also arriving at Longleat this year is the Deadly Challenge, which will see aspiring adventurers pitch their skills against some of the world’s most lethal creatures in a series of physical challenges
