Event description

Description

Join us as we camp out in nature's home and sleep beneath the stars, experiencing RSPB Farnham Heath as never before! Suitable for families or grown ups wanting a night beneath the stars.

Bring along your tent, go out on a guided night walk, enjoy food cooked over our fire and wake up in a meadow on this Heathland Reserve. As the sun goes down, we'll have a twilight wander to look for and listen to the creatures that go bump in the night. We'll set the moth trap to unveil in the morning, then it's hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows before falling asleep under the stars.
