Festival of Nature Bristol 2019


The Festival of Nature is the UK’s largest free celebration of nature.

After a reduced programme last year, the Festival is back with a bang, with a multitude of virtual and in-person events and the launch of Festival of Nature TV and podcasts.

It comes as exclusive new research released from Natural England suggests that nature became a more important part of our routines this year, as life slowed down under coronavirus restrictions. The People and Nature Survey shows that, since coronavirus began, 42% adults report spending more time outside and almost a third (30%) claimed they had spent more time noticing nature and wildlife.

This Festival of Nature aims to help people stick to the ‘nature habit’ they’ve developed in lockdown. Participants can try out tree yoga and attend outdoor talks in secret nature spots. There are plenty of chances to get creative too, with guided virtual draw-alongs, make-alongs and cook-alongs all themed around nature, as well as a session on writing a nature poem led by Bristol’s city poet. 

The festival is also set to showcase 100 ‘voices for nature’ around Bristol and Bath. Video and audio content released throughout the week will transport listeners to sites including Slimbridge Wetland Centre, Bristol and Bath’s parks, Bristol Zoo, Tyntesfield, and the Botanic Gardens, hearing from site managers about how nature in these places fared during lockdown, and providing a sneak peak of what’s coming up this summer.

Alongside the programme of events, organisers are encouraging the public to take ‘action for nature’, and have released a list of actions to inspire people to help nature flourish in their communities. The public are encouraged to log their actions online, and the Festival is aiming to inspire 25,000 actions over the week.
