Be inspired

You can enjoy inspiring talks from nature experts, in 2017 this included writer, ecologist and TV presenter, Mike Dilger. Talks included how we're saving nature, from seabirds and bees to building Britain's biggest reedbed.

Learn something new

You can expect hands-on workshops, last year these included photography, birdsong for beginners and much more. There will also be a variety of seminars where you can learn about the RSPB's diverse work.


There are lots of options to choose from. This year we visited Sherwood Forest, Chatsworth House and RSPB Middleton Lakes Nature Reserve, plus guided walks to discover the local wildlife,


Meet fellow members and supporters and celebrate a shared love of nature. There's plenty of time for you to visit the exhibition area to chat to RSPB staff about their work, and browse the wonderful products in our pop-up shop, complete with some great special offers.
