TV star Michaela Strachan performs new show at Newquay Zoo
TV WILDLIFE star Michaela Strachan visited Newquay Zoo today to dazzle families with her ‘Really Wild Adventures’ show.
Showcased at the Bath and Cheltenham literary festivals earlier this year, the audience is taken on a journey through an alphabet jungle of animal rhymes.
Based on her first books of poems, it is a whistle-stop interactive show full of poetry, puppetry, music and lots of fascinating wildlife facts.
Audience members are invited on stage to explore a snake's particularly horrid habit, a lucky dad gets to play a polar bear and everyone gets to join in Animal Pop Idol.

Explaining the inspiration for the show, Michaela said: “I'm a great fan of children's books that have been turned into stage shows, like The Gruffalo, but others annoy me because they're not at all factual. I wanted this to be a fun show but also one that might inform a little bit.”
Michaela has rarely been off our TV screens for the past 25 years. First there was kids' TV mainstay The Wide Awake Club, then The Hitman And Her, before she moved into wildlife presenting with The Really Wild Show, right up to Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch.
The subject of many a childhood – and adulthood – crush, pop band Scouting for Girls wrote a song about her in 2007 called ‘Michaela Strachan (You Broke My Heart)’.
