For me Twycross Zoo conjures back PG Tips adverts from the ’70′s and whilst the zoo has now undoubtedly moved forward in animal conservation & welfare, the images remain if only on You Tube.
PG removal men, Mr Shifter & son with the piano on the stairs, (‘Dad, do you know that piano’s on my foot?’ ‘You hum it son, I’ll play it!’). I also have it on good authority that one of the old chimp advert stars remains at Twycross Zoo too, (sadly Louis died July 2013 but 42 year old Choppers is going strong) .

Whilst the attraction remains in Leicestershire, the Warwickshire postcode is correct but don’t ask me why!
