Sea Life Centre Birmingham throws penguin party to celebrate Jubilee
The National Sea Life Centre Birmingham is throwing a Jubilee party like no other, as its resident flippered friends celebrate the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.
Whist the UK enjoys a double bank holiday to mark the momentous occasion, Sea Life Birmingham’s adorable Gentoo penguins will also be joining in on the celebrations.
The Penguin Ice Adventure area will be adorned in bunting and decorations turning the Penguin’s abode into the perfect street party location, imitating scenes up and down the country during the June bank holiday weekend.
Sea Life Birmingham is home to the tight-knit group of Gentoo penguins who are renowned for forming strong lasting bonds.
As such, Buzz, Prince, Hook, Monty, Rex, Niffler and Tina hit the news earlier this year due to comparisons to their infamous neighbours – the Peaky Blinders.
The penguins will be served their food on cups and saucers, whilst the animal care team will be treating the waddle to a fish and ice cake – meaning the adorable bunch will be fully immersed in the Jubilee celebrations.
Amy Langham, general manager at Sea Life Birmingham, said: “We’re all extremely excited to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee this June. However, we didn’t want our penguin pals to feel sad at missing out.
“As such, the penguin enclosure has been revamped to replicate the perfect UK street party, meaning even our flippered friends will be able to honour the Queen’s amazing 70 years on the throne.”
