Bristol’s Bears come face to face at Wild Place Project
Bristol Bears’ playing squad are due to meet their namesakes here at Wild Place Project!

The Bristol Bears team will be visiting Wild Place Project on Tuesday April 19 from 12.30 until 1.15pm at Bear Wood to meet our four European brown bears. 

Visitors to Wild Place Project will be able to meet the players at Bear Wood, where they will sign autographs and pose for photos from 12.30 until 1.15pm.
Players from the squad first visited Bear Wood soon after it opened in 2019, but this is the first time they have been back since COVID forced Wild Place Project to close for much of 2020 and 2021.
James Kitto, Head of Commercial Operations at Wild Place Project, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming the Bristol Bears players back to reunite with their four-legged counterparts after almost three years, and to offer our visitors the chance to meet the city’s two sets of bears at the same time!”

The meet and greet event is free but usual admission prices apply. To avoid disappointment we recommend pre-booking your visit and allowing enough time to walk from admission to the Bear Wood exhibit.

*Please note main photograph is from 2019 and players will have changed.
