It’s all change this year for the RSPB Weekend!

Having swapped York for Nottingham, there are new excursions to enjoy, new places to explore and new people to hear from. One thing that hasn’t changed though, is that it’s one of the highlights of the RSPB year.

Hear from Mike Dilger

Mike Dilger is this year’s celebrity after-dinner speaker. And it’s fair to say he’s excited about the weekend:

‘I’m looking forward to being at the RSPB Weekend over the three days! As well as talking about the trials and tribulations of a natural history presenter, I’m joining other wildlife gardening experts, like the RSPB’s very own Adrian Thomas, for a special ‘Wildlife gardeners’ question time. Make sure you’ve got your burning questions ready for us! It should be great, and if we can help you make your garden more wildlife-friendly then brilliant. Whatever activities you choose though, come along, have a great time, and say hi!’

Why not join Mike, RSPB staff and volunteers and experience a range of talks, seminars and workshops. You can pick the ones that interest you the most.

What’s in store?

Here are just a few things awaiting for you:


For the early-risers, there’s a morning guided walk around the university grounds, as well as a range of excursions to places like Sherwood Forest.


Bring your camera with you and join our expert for the wildlife photography walkabout, and find out how we can all play our part in saving wildlife from climate change.


Matt Williams tells all about turning vision to reality in the UK youth nature movement, plus you can hear about tackling farmland wildlife declines and the return of seabirds to the Isles of Scilly.

And of course, there is much, much more. Take a look and find something for you.

That’s just the start! Be sure to book early so you can secure your favourite options – many are going quickly!
