Fangtastic Fun at Fort Burgoyne

Fort Burgoyne

27th October 2023 : 10am-12pm OR 1.30pm-3.30pm

Join us for some spooky fun at Fort Burgoyne this October half term!

Explore part of the Fort on a self-led trail featuring facts about some of our creepier British wildlife. Every child who completes the trail will receive a sweet treat*

After you’ve completed the trail you can try your hand at becoming owl pellet detectives! What bones, beaks and other bodily bits will you find as you dissect a real owl pellet. For health and safety reasons this activity is not suitable for under 5’s.

There will also be the opportunity to get stuck into some creepy craft activities too!

Suitable for ages 5+. Younger children are welcome to join but they will not be able to join in with the owl pellet detective activity.

Dogs must be on a lead.


£5 per child
