Made any plans for the weekend yet? Need something fun to do with the kids? We've got just the thing - join us for Big Wild Sleepout: The Lockdown Edition and put a little wild back into your world this Saturday from 4-8pm. There's a full line up of events with highlights such as: Gardenwatch with wildlife presenter, Iolo Williams, campfire stories with children's TV presenter, Rory Crawford and a whole host of games and activities for you to complete including: 'Whose poo?', bug hunts and a nature quiz by Adrian Thomas too. So get your camping gear ready, it's time for an exciting night away... in the garden!
The RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout has been running since 2013, and normally we’d invite you along to take part on one of our reserves. But this year, we’re encouraging everyone to enjoy the event at home, both indoors and outdoors.Whether you pitch a tent in your garden, build a den inside, or sit by a window to see and hear the nature around you. There will be lots of activities and sessions throughout the afternoon and evening to keep you entertained. Experience all that nature has to offer when the sun goes down and join us for a first of its kind, online adventure:
