Youngsters were treated to a visit from Ben and Holly at Drusillas Park during the Easter holidays.

Lilith Woodward from Eastbourne was left spellbound after meeting her idols, Ben Elf and Princess Holly at the zoo on April 1.

Four-year-old Lilith was one of hundreds of visitors who flocked to the attraction in East Sussex to meet the popular pair during the school Easter holidays.

Ben and Holly made appearances at intervals throughout the day in the events arena.

The popular characters posed for pictures and carried out some meet and greet magic, much to the delight of Lilith and the other fans who had visited to see them.

The enchantment of the Little Kingdom will be cast over Drusillas Park once again on July 29, as Ben and Holly return by popular demand for another fun-filled adventure.

Drusillas Park celebrates its 90th year in 2015.

The park was founded in 1925, when the late Captain Ann bought a derelict farm and opened the cottage to sell teas to passing motorists. Today the zoo is home to more than 100 creatures.
