The reserve hosts special events, shows and activities all year round including daily, summer long activities in the Nature Explorers Tent, a Mediaeval Spectacular with marauding vikings heading for shore in their long boat, spooky Halloween Half Term special, specialist plant days to inspire garden lovers and floodlit winter feeds that give you the opportunity to experience the beauty of our winter visitors up close.
