Steve Backshall Live

Steve is also very excited to be presenting an all-new live wildlife show at the open-air theatre at Longleat Safari Park from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June (over the half-term holidays).

During the show, Steve will introduce the audience to some of his favourite animals and birds of prey.

He said: “I can’t wait to be back at Longleat introducing members and guests to an amazing variety of animals and birds of prey, as well as raising much-needed funds to support the critical conservation work that is being done by Tusk.

“My family and I love to visit Longleat – there are more than 100 animal species, a fantastic historic house and plenty of fun for kids in the Adventure Castle playground! It’s an amazing day out with something for everyone!”
