Now in its FOURTH year, there will be two jam-packed days with amazing activities that will have you enthralled by the wildlife found right on our doorstep, all set in the Zoo's stunning Nature Reserve.

This year, get closer to wildlife than ever before with extraordinary performances in the Nature Reserve amphitheatre from storytellers, Yan Tan Tethera on Saturday! Shout “hello” up above to walking trees wandering around the festival field, and join Twigtwisters for some willow weaving fun all weekend!

Delve into all things flora and fauna with interactive storytelling sessions and get hands-on with bird feeder building and other crafty creations. You can relax and enjoy live music from a variety of local acts, or get play the pollination game with our horticulturists! You can even get stuck in to conservation work with the Zoo's scientists.

Discover the extraordinary world of UK plants and animals that are right under your feet in this weekend full of nature-ific fun!
