A popular folk band are preparing to help give nature a home – with a unique music event at RSPB Ribble Discovery Centre this month.

Three-piece band Trouble At’ Mill are set to play a lively evening of music at the Fairhaven Lake venue on September 27, after band member and RSPB supporter, Graham Nixon, offered to help raise funds for the charity’s Giving Nature a Home campaign.

Julie Vale, Visitor Services Officer at RSPB’s Ribble Discovery Centre, said: “When Graham suggested performing at the venue, we were delighted as Trouble At’ Mill are a brilliant, fun band who don’t take themselves too seriously. It’s sure to be an entertaining evening, full of music and stories.

“As a local moth enthusiast, Graham recently helped at the centre at the Big Wildlife Stocktake, by showing families the amazing moths that are found at Fairhaven, so it’s fantastic he is supporting the RSPB again – but this time by donning his guitar for a different type of fun.”

The event, which starts at 8pm, will raise money for Giving Nature a Home, the RSPB campaign which aims to encourage people to make small changes to build a home for nature where they live, while the charity builds homes for nature on a large scale, right across the country.

Booking for the event is essential and seats are £5 per person. Please visit the centre to book your place or call 01253 796292. Some soft drinks will be provided, but please feel free to bring your own refreshments.

How you can help

Nature in the UK is in trouble and some of our more familiar garden species are amongst those suffering serious declines. We can all help by giving nature a home where we live.
