The Extraordinary Expedition to Africa in the Queen's Year Twenty and Thirteen

Wanted: Stout men and women to participate in treacherous, unpaid, daring expedition. Dare you venture to the deepest, darkest reaches of the lost continent? What dangers will be encountered? What triumphs shall we experience? Join our expeditionary team as we travel to the zoo for a day of exploration and discovery. For those who do not succumb to the perils of our journey, the expedition will continue on to the local bazaar of Inglewood in quest of the neat and shiny and perhaps partake of the local cuisine. So pack your bags, grab your pith, and prepare to journey onward to Africa!

General Admission (16 - 59) $22.50

Senior (60+) $20.50

Child (3 - 15) $14.50

Infant (2 & under) Free

We will congregate at 10:00am under the LRT station by the ticket wickets

 

The African Film Classics for Saturday night showing is cancelled for now to be  rescheduled for a later date.

    The Expedition was great fun, especially this time as I got to go in costume! I met some new cogs who were really cool, and it was great to see some familiar faces.

    This seems like a truly fascinating foray into the unknown~! I wish to go but cannot this time. I do hope there'll be future adventures planned for an uncharted journey of this calibre!

    The admission to the Zoo is the only fee for the event. If your a Zoo member your good to go.

    January 4, 2013

  • Scott J.

    Is the price the admission to the Zoo, and if so, is there any additional cost for Assemblage Members who are also Zoo Members?

    Attendance subject to work, as always with events during the day on Sat.

    January 3, 2013

  • Emmelia T.

    I will preemptively say that I am attending. I am also going to say that I am bringing a guest, just in case. This is likely to change, mind you, but I would definitely be in favour of attending such an expedition!
