Festival of Nature 2017 – opportunities to take part

The Festival of Nature gives wildlife lovers of all ages a unique opportunity to discover and enjoy the natural world.

Spanning three event-filled weeks, the Festival features a line-up of hands-on activities, local art and performance, workshops, celebrity talks, live entertainment, local and sustainable traders, and much more. The event is the UK’s biggest free celebration of the natural world and one of the only major tourist events to span Bristol and Bath, and provide a dedicated education programme.

Welcoming 25,000+ visitors over the three week programme, and with a large online following, significant PR reach, and gala VIP events, the Festival is a unique opportunity for organisations, activity providers and performers to reach a wide and diverse audience across the South West.

The events

Here are just a few examples of the events taking place:

  • Bristol Weekend & Schools Day  – Fri 9th – Sun 11th June, Bristol Harbourside
  • Bristol Schools BioBlitz – Wednesday 14th June, Stoke Park – In the UK’s first BioBlitz event dedicated to engaging secondary school age groups, students will join experienced naturalists, volunteers and researchers in a race against time to identify, record and document as many species of wildlife as possible. Working with schools to select students with high potential for engagement we hope to inspire the next generation of wildlife scientists.
  • Bath BioBlitz Fri 23rd – Sat 24th June, Bushey Norwood (tbc)
