Free Entry for Leaplings!
Drusillas Park in Alfriston are offering free entry this Saturday 29th February, to anyone who was born on a leap year! If you were born on this special day that only occurs once every four years, you can get in free to Drusillas!
Once every four years, an extra day sneaks onto the calendar to allow for the Earth’s extra quarter-rotation around the sun every year. This means we get an extra day at the end of February each leap year.
Drusillas Director and Head of Marketing, Cassie Poland, said: “It’s no fun for those born on a leap year, as they only get to celebrate their real birthday once every four years! We thought we would help make this day extra special by offering free entry to all leaplings! So, anyone born on 29th February, is entitled to celebrate their day at Drusillas for free.”
“The offer is valid on Saturday 29th February only and all we ask is that you bring a valid ID to prove your date of birth, so this could be a driving licence, passport or birth certificate.”
Those born on a Leap Day are part of a very exclusive group. In 2016 just 5 million people in the world were born on February 29th, which equates to less than one per cent of the world’s population.
Leap years take place every four years, meaning the next leap day will be February 29th 2024. So, it will be another four years before women can ‘traditionally’ propose to men and all the leaplings can celebrate their real birthdays.
Drusillas Director and Head of Marketing, Cassie Poland, said: “We hope anyone born on the 29th of Feb will come and celebrate their special day with us! We’ve got hundreds of exotic animals, large adventure play areas and some brilliant rides – all of which make for an amazing day out! We wish all leap year babies a very happy birthday!”
*This offer is valid for one day only (Saturday 29th February 2020). Anyone wanting to use the offer must be able to prove that they were born on 29th February by providing either a driving licence, passport or birth certificate. This offer can only be used by the person born on 29th February. Drusillas cannot exchange or refund tickets for those who have already booked and there is no flexibility to change to any other dates.
