Secret World Wildlife Rescue is set to host an exciting new event named 'Wild Weekend' taking place over the late May bank holiday.

This event focuses on the environment, wildlife, and sustainability, offering the public two days of entertainment, education, and fun on May 25 and 26.

The event will incorporate the much-loved aspects of the organisation's Fun Days, such as wildlife talks, learning workshops and fundraising activities, with enhancements to make these bigger and better than ever before.

Visitors can enjoy a broadened range of activities with an enhanced focus on the environment and sustainability.

Attendees can learn from the Secret World team about diverse areas including conservation, the different species they help, and the organisation's history.

Additionally, a line-up of guest speakers will present both free and paid talks. Notable names include Springwatch and Autumnwatch presenter Martin Hughes-Games, Brigit Strawbridge and Billy Heaney.

For those interested in sustainability and craftsmanship, the Wild Weekend will host an eco craft market. A broad variety of crafters and traders will be selling sustainable, green and recycled products.

Vendors confirmed so far include The Mendip Maker, The Bare Pig Cosmetics, and Spangled Treasures, amongst many others. Alongside these educational aspects, the event will also provide plenty of entertainment.

A learning and fun zone will offer a medley of practical, nature-themed activities suitable for both children and adults.

Moreover, an assortment of workshops will be available, ranging from wildflower and spider walks to a wildlife safari and qigong tai chi sessions.

Refreshments will be provided by Secret World, which will cater to all tastes with a selection of food and drink, including vegan options.

The organisation's renowned cake tent will also be present, along with alcoholic beverages for adults.

Entrance to the event is priced at £5 per person, with free entry available for those aged under five, and discounted entry at £2 for carers and their clients.

Tickets can be purchased in advance via the Secret World website.

Proceeds from the Wild Weekend will aid the rescue and recovery of sick, injured and orphaned British wildlife, offering these animals a second chance at life in the wild.
