Nature Fright Nights

Tuesday, October 29, 2019 to Thursday, October 31, 2019

See nocturnal nature at its worst during one of our Nature Fright Nights!

Start your night in the Discovery Centre, where you'll do Halloween crafts making a spooky lantern to take on your adventure. You'll then head outdoors for a night-time stroll, stopping to enjoy bat detecting in Hollowood before venturing to Hunters Shriek cabin for potion making and outdoor stories. Then back to the centre for a tasty Halloween treat!

Sessions run from 5-7pm. Please bring an empty jam jar to create your lantern. Outdoor/warm clothing and suitable footwear are recommended. Fancy dress is, of course, welcome, however, please dress for the weather while outdoors!

When: Tuesday 29, Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 October - pre-booking essential

Cost: £8 per person.

Suitable for: ages 4+ (recommended). All children must be accompanied by a paying adult.
