Finding Dory at Sea Life Centres This Summer

To celebrate the cinema release of much-anticipated film sequel Finding Dory, Sea Life centres in the UK and Ireland have teamed up with Disney•Pixar to launch a series of summer events.  The perfect entertainment for all the family this summer, the Finding Dory events include an interactive and educational trail.

Special Disney•Pixar Finding Dory events will run until 11th September at the 12 Sea Life centres in the UK and Ireland.  Visitors will be led on an interactive trail inspired by one of the new Disney•PIXAR movie’s star sea creatures Hank, a cantankerous octopus (who is actually a septopus!)  Event organiser Jamie Turner said:

"Hank will appear in displays right through each centre, revealing amazing fishy facts and providing collectible ‘letters’ which will need unscrambling at the end of the journey to earn a reward.  Like Finding Nemo before it, the new film is likely to inspire an interest in marine life among millions of children, which is why we’re delighted to be associated with it.  With their help we think we can reinforce the messages which are at the heart of the film, about the importance of looking after our seas and of sharing experiences with family and friends."

Disney• Pixar’s Finding Dory tells the story of Dory’s quest to find her own family, with the help of Nemo and Marlin and new characters like Hank that she meets at a Californian marine rehabilitation centre and aquarium.  With many of the real sea creatures that the film's characters are based on on display, Sea Life is the perfect place to learn lots of fishy facts.

The Centres hosting the Finding Dory event are in London, Birmingham, Blackpool, Brighton, Great Yarmouth, Hunstanton, Loch Lomond, Manchester, Scarborough, Weymouth, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary and Bray (Ireland).  Find out more and book tickets here:

Open to visitors for more than 140 years, SEA LIFE Brighton is the world's oldest operating aquarium, and is home to more than 3,500 creatures including sharks, turtles, seahorses, rays and an anaconda.  Highlights include feeding demonstrations throughout the day, an interactive rock pool and the fantastic 360-degree Ocean Tunnel.  Our local centre is always a joy to visit, as you can see from Julia Claxton's stunning photos.

And don't forget to enter our competitions!


  1. What a brilliant way to use a kid's film to ignite some interest in marine conservation and I am a for these types of initiatives. Maybe the next Jaques Cousteau will have got their enthusiasm for the sea fired up this way! Nice to see some marine life on #AnimalTales too :)
