There was a day of safari fun at the Swansgate Shopping Centre with a visit from some animals.

Children flocked to the centre on Wednesday to meet animals and creepy crawlies, including a lizard, spiders, scorpions, tortoises and many more in an educational and interactive show.

Shoppers also got up close and personal with snakes, having their picture taken with them by a professional photographer.

The shopping centre is now giving one lucky winner the chance to win a family ticket to London Zoo this summer.

All you have to do to enter is find your picture from the day on Swansgate Shopping Centre’s Facebook page and tag yourself to enter.

The fun is continuing on Wednesday, August 27, with another safari event.

Shoppers can have their picture taken with life-size animal props including a baby elephant, zebra, giraffe and gorilla.

You can take home an instant print of your photo, as well as enjoy magic and balloon modelling.
