Big Wild Sleepout is Back 8 May 2017

Calling all campers – the RSPB’s Big Wild Sleepout is back for 2017 and you’re invited!

The nature charity’s most popular family event of the year will take place on Saturday 22 July at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum in Cultra, County Down.

Last year’s Big Wild Sleepout saw around 250 people sleep out under the stars and take part in a host of fun activities. In fact, it was such a success that the event was a finalist in the prestigious Ni4Kids Family Awards!

This year there’ll be something to keep all ages entertained, from nature crafts and mini–beast hunting to bat detecting and bush crafts. Stargazing sessions and a visit from wildlife rescuer Debbie Doolittle are sure to be a hit with the kids, as well as music and toasting marshmallows around the campfire.

The museum is the perfect place for families to try camping for the first time. Toilet facilities, 24–hour security and designated safe spaces to cook and camp mean you can get on with just having fun!

Tim McCann, RSPB NI Community Team Manager, said: “This is the fourth Big Wild Sleepout event we’ve held and it really is the highlight of our summer. To see families having so much fun and getting close to nature is amazing and all profits from the event go straight back into protecting wildlife in Northern Ireland.”

Big Wild Sleepout tickets are priced at £20 for adults and £17 for children. Kids under four go completely free. Find out more and book your spot by the campfire now at http://www.bwso2017.eventbrite.co.uk
