Festival of Nature 2022


Festival of Nature, the UK’s largest free celebration of the natural world, is back from June 10-18, 2022.

The festival runs across the West of England, organised since 2003 by the partners of The Natural History Consortium. After two years online, they are heading back outdoors in 2022 and want you to join them!

The team has put together an unmissable programme of 95 events, including nature walks and talks, wildlife workshops, and digital events across Bristol and Bath.

This year’s festival will host a mix of digital, hybrid, and in-person activities - with something for everyone. With a line up full of inspiring activities from gardening events and green social prescribing sessions to family nature workshops and film screenings, you don’t want to miss this!
