Children’s TV favourites Bing and Flop at WWT Slimbridge this Easter

Bing at WWTSlimbridge

Bing and Flop from the multi-award winning animated children's television series have arrived at WWT Slimbridge for the launch of ‘Bing’s Nature Explorers’ - a new joint event programme between WWT, the charity for wetlands and wildlife, and independent creative studio Acamar Films.

Running from Saturday 23 March until Sunday 2 June, Bing’s Nature Explorers encourages little and big explorers alike to discover and learn about wetland nature and wildlife through a programme of family-friendly activities.

The programme includes an activity trail featuring Bing and his friends, encouraging little legs to discover the signs of spring and learn more about the range of plants, birds and animals that call the wetlands home.

What’s more, WWT Slimbridge are hosting interactive mini shows and meet and greets with Bing and Flop from 23 March – 14 April. Plus, Bing storytelling sessions, featuring the books from HarperCollins, daily from 23 March – 14 April and on weekends until 2 June.
There is also Bing merchandise available at WWT Slimbridge’s shop whilst the programme is running. Every child who completes the trail will also receive a souvenir Bing sticker, and those who take part in the storytelling or mini show sessions can expect to receive paper Bing ears to wear and take home with them.
Other activities happening at WWT Slimbridge during the Bing programme will include:
·       Daily otter, amphibian and Living Wetland Theatre talks.
·       1KM Canoe Safari trail (weather dependent), additional fees apply.
·       Welly Boot Land, Wild Play and Riverlife play areas.
·       WWT Slimbridge’s free family friendly app – Wetland Heroes.

Gary Haseley-Nejrup, Slimbridge General Manager at WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre, said: “Bing is one of TV’s best loved characters, and a brilliant advocate for getting outdoors and learning through play and discovery - which is exactly what we at WWT Slimbridge are all about!
“We’re super excited to be teaming up with Bing and his friends to encourage younger generations to become nature explorers and learn about what makes UK wetland wildlife so special, and to inspire them to help protect the future of wetlands in the UK.”

Kirsty Southgate, Director of Experiential and Promotions at Acamar Films, added: “Bing and his friends love finding opportunities to play outside, and learn more about the plants and animals around them. We hope that visitors to WWT Slimbridge also find the same joy in exploring and learning more about UK wetland wildlife.”

Bing’s Nature Explorers will run from Saturday 23 March until Sunday 2 June. All activities will be included in the admission price or free for WWT members. For more information, see below.
