See WWT Slimbridge in a whole new light


After hours at WWT slimbridge

Visitors will have the chance to see a wildlife attraction in a whole new light when it opens its doors on selected summer evenings.
 
Slimbridge Wetland Centre is having four Afterhours events to allow visitors a unique look at the site.
 
The first later this month has a musical theme with a jazz ensemble playing and May whistle making demonstrations.
 
In June there will be one focussed on wildlife which includes a mammal tracking session, in July there will be a relaxation themed one which includes mediation walks and yoga and in August there will be a family themed one with a children’s entertainer and a free canoe safari.
 
The one on Saturday, May 26  features Swing from Paris who will be playing near welly boot land.  
 
Sally Munro,  marketing manager, said : “Birds and mammals change their behaviour in the evening and just like humans tend to settle down – unless they are nocturnal of course!
 
“Slimbridge feels really relaxing and peaceful in the evening and we wanted to give our visitors a chance to experience that, as well as the opportunity to take photos from our hides in the softer evening light.
 
“All of the four Afterhours events are slightly different so there is be one to appeal to everyone.”

 
The afterhours events all run from 4.30pm to 8.30pm. The hides will be open for the event and summer refreshments will be available from kiosks in the grounds.
 
The Musical Afterhours is on 26th May, Wild Afterhours is on 30th June, Relax Afterhours is on 28th July and Fun afterhours is on 25th August.
