Half Term fun at Brogdale Farm
Brogdale Collections has a full season of events planned for 2020. Our unique and fruit filled events are hosted as ever to support education about the National Fruit Collections, as well as continuing to provide public access.
Beastie Day – 21st February
A full day of exploring Brogdale and discovering fantastic bugs & mini beasts. Book your Live Bug Show time and spend the whole day exploring the orchards, discovering bugs and have lots of fun.
Meet an impressive collection of Mega Bugs, including Hissing Cockroaches, Millipedes, Scorpions, Stick Insects, Beetle Larvae, Snails and Tarantulas!
Meet the Raptors – in door fun for rainy days – 19th & 20th February
Joe and his team will be flying a mixture of Hawks, Buzzards, Owls and you will see a glorious Falcon stoop past you at high speed! We will give an insight into their natural world, showing you how they hunt, catch prey, survive and demonstrate different flying techniques they use. This time will also include a chance to meet the birds up close and personal, a perfect opportunity to get a picture of one on your arm!
Orchard Craft Days – 18th February
Come along and spend some time visiting our orchards and then discover our den area where you can have a go at making your own stick people or creatures and then create your own home for them to live in.
Take up our challenge of making your home weatherproof to protect your creatures from the worst of our winter weather. Will your creature stay dry and warm when the winter storm comes?
