Schools' Day at the Festival of Nature

Year 8 pupils will welcome children from across the region when the College hosts the fifth annual Schools’ Day at the Festival of Nature’s Wild Weekend.

The event will take place at the Harbourside in Bristol on Friday, 13th June, 2014.  Organisers are hoping more than 1,000 children will turn up for a day of free hands-on science and nature activities.

School's Day kicks off a weekend of fun. The Festival of Nature Wild Weekend is the UK’s biggest free natural history event, giving nature lovers of all ages a unique opportunity to explore and enjoy the wonders of the natural world.  

Some exciting new additions include the Explorer Dome portable planetarium, Soapbox Science and a specially created wildlife garden. Returning favourites include the BBC Natural History Unit, who will be giving visitors the chance to see if they have what it takes to be a wildlife presenter, and North Somerset Butterfly House, who will install their immersive pop-up butterfly garden.
