Riverside One - Flamingo Land's new arena

Flamingo Land will turn into Festival Land as the theme park opens the doors to its new arena this Saturday.

Construction workers at the North Yorkshire attraction have spent months building Riverside One - where visitors can listen to music alongside the lions and tigers - who are safely in their enclosures, of course.

As well as a medley of tribute acts, from Take That to the Jersey Boys, there will be a screening of the World Cup football games on the new giant screen.
