“Wildlife is wicked” says Nicky Simpson of Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust, who this month is organising the Trust’s most popular event of the year. “This is a great time of year to engage children with nature as they are fascinated with creepy crawlies and bats, wildlife that is associated with Halloween.”

To capture this fascination, Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust is organising a two-day event called Halloween Horror and Wicked Wildlife that will run from 11am – 2pm on Thursday 29th and Friday 30th October, at Robinswood Hill Country Park in Gloucester.

“Hundreds are expected to attend this annual event and there will be lots of activities to get involved in” continues Nicky.

“From making gooey bird feeders and prickly hedgehogs to exploring the wilds of Robinswood Hill Country Park. There will also be circus skills, face painting, storytelling, scavenger hunts and the most important Halloween activity of all, pumpkin carving!

The event has been kindly sponsored by local business Poeton whose headquarters are on Eastern Avenue, Gloucester and support the Trust’s ‘All Paths Lead to the Hill’ project, which is a partnership project between Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust and Gloucester City Council.

If you are coming along, the event and parking is free but there is a small charge for some of the activities such as pumpkin carving and there will be refreshments available too. The event takes place outside next to the main car park – follow the signs to Robinswood Hill Country Park from St. Barnabus Roundabout. Hundreds of people are expected, so please walk or take the bus if possible.
