Blue member Webbe, as well as being a former Strictly competitor, will headline Twycross Zoo’s final Summer Sundown event in 2022.

Taking place after the Zoo closes on Saturday September 3, the event will mark the end of the summer holidays.

It follows the wildly popular Summer Sundown event in July, featuring McFly’s Dougie Poynter.

Ahead of Webbe’s DJ night, guests will be able to enter the 100-acre zoo beginning at 5 p.m. to see hundreds of animals, including many endangered species, at a time rarely seen by the public. Tickets start at £27 and can be booked via

Richard Loftus, Marketing Director of Twycross Zoo, said: “Our Summer Sundown event offers visitors the unique chance to experience the zoo in a whole new way.

“We are delighted to welcome Simon to Twycross Zoo for this exclusive after-hours DJ set that will close out the summer in style.

“Events like these help us increase the volume of our conservation charity and continue our vital work to protect some of the world’s most endangered species with whom we share our planet.”

During the Summer Sundown event, an animal protection officer will be present, alongside the keepers, to take care of the animals. Sound levels will be monitored and animal facilities will be closed in the evening at times appropriate for the animals.
