Dluverton, Near Tiverton, Somerset, Devon, TA22, Somerset
A fun-filled and freaky pre-Halloween evening of spooky-themed family activities. Take part in a twilight bat walk and learn about some of the nocturnal wildlife that calls Wimbleball home, look up to the sky and see what cosmic constellations you can spot before following the pumpkin path and testing your autumnal knowledge.
There is something for everyone with opportunities to take part in Halloween and Dark Skies themed woodwork, environmental art and outdoor cooking.
£3 per child & £2 per adult – all proceeds go towards protecting and enhancing Wimbleball. Please bring waterproof clothing and sturdy shoes.
This event takes place as part of the Exmoor Dark Skies Festival 2021.
