The Festival of Nature, the UK’s biggest free natural history event, returns to Bristol’s Harbourside in June. Nature-lovers of all ages are invited to explore and enjoy the natural world in this unique celebration.

Spanning two days, the opening event features more than 100 organisations with an exciting programme of hands-on activities, fascinating talks, live entertainment, a market bursting with local produce and much more.

•Follow the journey of the river from source to sea, as you wind through woodlands, urban jungles and wetlands without leaving the city centre.
•Explore real pop-up woodlands, wildlife gardens, butterfly houses and giant sandpits.
•Meet the giants of the natural world and take part in their inspiring activities, including the BBC, National Trust, RSPB and many more.
•Discover the Woodland Stage for a jam-packed programme of toe-tapping music and performance throughout the weekend.

This lively weekend – part of the Bristol800 programme – will culminate in a spectacle of colour, sound and performance at Lloyd’s Amphitheatre at 4pm on the Sunday as the festival sets sail from the Harbourside and begins its journey along the River Avon to the city of Bath. The festival ends on Saturday 25 June 2016.

Bristol800 is supported by:

Arts Council England, Bristol & Bath Cultural Destinations, Bristol City Council, The Society of Merchant Venturers, University of Bristol, University of the West of England

Also opening on 11 June will be the free exhibition Bristol 2015: It Doesn’t Stop Here at M-Shed (runs to 3 September), showcasing the projects and events which aimed to make Bristol a healthier, happier and more environmentally sustainable city in 2015 .
