The Festival of Nature unleashes the city's wild side once again this summer, taking over Bristol Harbourside.

The UK's largest free celebration of the natural world, the Bristol Festival of Nature lets loose wildlife enthusiasts of all ages to explore, enjoy, and get close to nature in the heart of the city.

Throughout this coming weekend, the festival site will be packed with exciting free activities and brings together over 150 organisations for a programme of interactive activities, live entertainment, hands-on experiences, a market packed with local produce and much more.

The highlights for the weekend include, the first screenings of new wildlife films produced by the next generation of natural history filmmakers, who are studying a new MA course in wildlife filmmaking run by UWE and the BBC.

A pop-up butterfly garden run by North Somerset Butterfly House which will give visitors an immersive experience to learn about some of the world’s most beautiful butterflies.

The Seeds of Change Garden which will connect the natural world to the city’s history of trade and migration through a ballast seed garden produced by Arnolfini and the University of Bristol.

Canal Boat Holiday guests wishing to visit the Festival of nature in Bristol should book their Canal Boat from Hilperton.

Bristol can be reached by cruising the beautiful Kennet And Avon Canal and is a perfect destination for a family weekend away.
