A wildlife park is giving guests the opportunity to get up close with bears at an exclusive dinner event.

Jimmy's Farm and Wildlife Park in Wherstead is home to three polar bears, Ewa, Flocke and Tala, and Diego the brown bear.

Ewa and Diego were rescued from Orsa Predator Park in Sweden, which shut in 2022 and was sold to developers. 

Flocke and Tala, a mother and daughter duo, came from Yorkshire Wildlife Park as part of a programme which aims to conserve populations of threatened species and animals in captivity.

The attraction has announced a new event that will bring guests close to all of the bears on Friday, May 10.

A spokesman said: "Immerse yourself in an exclusive behind the scenes tour of our bear facilities with our experienced rangers.

"Get close to our lovely bears and learn about how we care for them. Head back to the restaurant to enjoy a delicious three course, bear themed menu."

Tickets cost £120 per person and can be purchased at Jimmy's Farm website.
