Discover the natural world in the heart of the city of Bristol, the Hollywood of wildlife film-making.
Have you ever had to try and explain why the sky is blue to your kids? Or wondered what the biggest fish in the world is? You and they are likely to find the answers at Bristol’s Festival of Nature – the UK’s biggest free natural history event.
Held over 11th and 12th June on Bristol’s beautiful Harbourside, this massive celebration of the natural world features hundreds of organisations and exciting events including hands-on activities, arts, lectures, fascinating tours, film screenings, a local-produce market and live entertainment. The event, run by the Bristol Natural History Consortium, culminates in a spectacle of colour and sound on Sunday afternoon as the festival sets sail along the River Avon to Bath. Past festivals have included a portable planetarium, pop-up butterfly garden as well as talks from distinguished BBC presenters including Sir David Attenborough and Monty Hall.
