ZigZag Photography Leicester are having another open day! 

17th April 11.00am-4.00pm

Our family fun open day is becoming a bit of a tradition now. After two previous successful open days, we are opening our doors again. It’s a great chance for you to have a look around and for your kids to experience a mini photo shoot. We've also got loads of extra activities planned. This year we are raising money for 20-20 voice cancer so all donations are welcomed and we will also be selling raffle tickets. Have a read to see what we have planned! 



This year, we are streamlining our backdrops and will be using just our three most popular backdrops. They are very versatile and will fit a whole range of costumes. Your little ones will get to experience having their photos taken in a profession studio. For our open day, no appointment is necessary, you can just pop down. When you arrive, you will need to collect a number from a member of staff and wait for your number to be called. Please ensure your children are dressed ready for their photoshoot before your number is called to help the day run smoothly. There will be lots of entertainment whilst you wait, and don’t worry, if you are involved in another activity when your number is called, we will come back to you. As we do all our printing in house, a member of staff will bring you your finished print as soon as it is ready.  



You will then have the option of entering your child's photo into our Facebook competition! All entered images will be put onto our Facebook page where the one with the most likes will win £200 to spend in our studio at a later date and a £25 voucher.

These are our winners from last year :)

This year, our previous face painter has retired. But it’s ok, we’ve got Livi Lollipop joining us. She’s a very talented artist and does some awesome designs and even hosts face painting workshops! There will be a small charge for the face painting this year. It will be just £1 with all proceeds going straight to the 20-20 voice cancer charity.




Diddi Dance will be here offering a free mini dance class between 1.30pm and 2pm. They aim to enhance children's endless energy and enthusiasm through funky, full of fun sessions that build confidence, co-ordination and creativity. These classes are perfect from around 16months - 5 years old. 





Party time with tumble is making a special appearance from 2.30pm-3.30pm - he will be singing, signing and keeping everyone entertained. He was a huge hit with the kids last year and we anticipate he will be very popular again.










Our mascot ZigZag Bear will be making another appearance! And you can also join our colouring competition where you can colour in a picture of him - they'll be 2 age categories and the best one in each wins a £10 voucher.



Last Years Goodie Bags

Last Years Goodie Bags


The first 100 children will receive a free Goodie Bag when they receive their photo print. Last years were packed full of fun, including bubbles, fake tattoos, a balloon, a keyring, toy and a chocolate! 





Photography Experience Gift Box’s

And if you like what we do, then why not buy one of our photography experience gift box’s. We’ve got a special exclusive voucher available. A 1 hour family photography session with £100 to spend towards any framed or wall portraits and a bonus photo keyring - all for just £5! (all proceeds to the charity) - if you have been to us within the past 12 months, you can still purchase one, but you will need to wait until 12 months has elapsed until you can book your new session. Also cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.

20-20 Voice Cancer

This year we are raising money for 20-20 voice cancer. All donations will be greatly received.

“20-20 Voice” Cancer strives for the relief of sickness and the promotion of health amongst cancer sufferers and their families in particular but not exclusively by:

  • Providing information, guidance and support to Laryngectomees, their families, the medical fraternity and the wider community on cancers of the head and neck

  • Providing or assisting in the provision of specialist equipment to hospitals.


We will also be photographing their 2020 calendar.


We will be selling raffle tickets for £1 each - you can read the full prize list here 



We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces at the open day. We had a great time last year! We'll have some extra little things going on to keep the kids entertained, including a bubble machine, floor chalks and garden games. They'll also be snacks and drinks on the day.
