World-famous animatronic polar-bear, Bjorn the Polar Bear, will be making special appearances at Winterland over the festive period. A cross between a petting zoo and a nature documentary, Bjorn’s show is an informal, magical and interactive experience. The ultimate winter-adventure for families, Bjorn loves to be petted, stroked and tickled behind the ears, so wrap up warm and prepare to be taken on an Arctic journey.

How do you know what a polar bear’s star sign is? Did you know that the word Arctic means ‘with bears’ and Antarctic means ‘without bears’? To find out more come and meet a polar bear named Bjorn; he’s friendly and totally gorgeous.

Discover what it’s like to get up close and personal with one of these amazing creatures and even give him a pat – if you’re feeling brave enough! Bjorn is accompanied by an Arctic conservationist who can tell you all about polar bears: what they eat, where they live and how they stay warm. A must for nature lovers of all ages, this magical show must be seen to be believed.
