 Monsters Hall of Fame


We are inviting people of all ages to design their own monster to be in with a chance of getting it’s name read out in the show at your venue!

All you have to do is use your imagination and create your own monster – you can draw us a picture, build us a model, dress up in fancy dress or write us a few sentences about what your monster looks like. Then you must give it a name and tell us a little bit about what your monster does. To enter the competition you can post a photo of your monster on to our Facebook page with the #monsterzootour  , send your entry to or hand it in to the venue you’ll be visiting to see the show. We’ll then choose one monster for every show and it’s name will be read out for all to hear!

We’ve had lots of explorers out there already discovering monsters living near them and we’ve managed to capture them for our Hall of Fame. See if you can recognise any in the list below …
