Curly Tails Pig Sanctuary
Newton Longville, Bletchley, MK17 0BH
On August 17th 2019 from 6pm till late UK Astronomy and Curly Tails are joining together to bring you Pigs & Perseids.
For just £15 a ticket you can come along and meet all the pigs as you walk around the sanctuary. You will receive a FREE piggy treat bag so that you can feed the pigs whilst you walk around. There will be refreshments on sale and FREE tea and coffee is included in the ticket price.
UK Astronomy will be giving you FREE solar glasses as part of your entry, and we will have specialist equipment with us so you can view the sun safely. When it begins to get dark there will be stargazing if clear (there is a talk for if the clouds are against us!)
Curly Tails and UK Astronomy Goodies will also be on sale.
So come along and join the fun! Numbers are limited so please make sure you book early!
