PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL BE LEAVING FROM VICTORIA PARK AT 19.30 TO WATCH THE BAT EMERGENCE. THE NIGHT SWIM STARTS BACK AT THE PARK AT 21.00 AND FINISHES AT 22.00.

This year's last night swim of 2019. The Devon Wildlife Trust talk gives you anopportunity to see the mass emergence of hundreds of Greater Horsehoe Bat in Buckfastleigh before enjoying a magical night time swim in our heated pool.

Timing for this night swim is to meet at Victoria Park Buckfastleigh at 19.30 when we will take you to experience these incredibly rare bats at close quarters at a secret location. This will involve a short walk across Buckfastleigh.

Experts will be on hand to tell you about these fantastic creatures, and then, shortly after sunset, you will be able to observe several hundred bats as the start their night forage. Then it's a short walk back to the pool for a magical night swim in our lovely warm pool with water heated to 27 degrees. The pool area will be gently lit by twinkling candle lights and fairy lights and each swimmer will wear a coloured glow stick - creating a magical and fun event.

Swimming will be from 21.00-22.00. Our tuck shop will be open for hot/cold drinks and snacks.
