This Halloween Mid Term break join us for a fun and interactive workshop around discovering the amazing world of bats. Bats are very misunderstood creatures and through fun and games we will learn how bats live, what they eat and how they hunt in the dark.
Weather permitting there will be a short walk to look for bats around the grounds of the castle. (** Suitable outdoor clothing required and a small flashlight)

The workshop is for kids between 6-12 year old, children must be supervised. The event is from 5pm to 6:30pm. The workshop will be delivered by Albert Nolan who is a Heritage in Schools Bat and Biodiversity specialist.

This event is free of charge but booking is essential as places are limited. To reserve your place contact:
