Terrific Tuesday – ‘Really Wild’ at Hestercombe - 6th August 2019

Are you ready for a really wild day at Hestercombe? Our second Terrific Tuesday this summer is all about animals.

Get up close to a variety of exotic animals and big bugs at the Really Wild Learning Show. Learn lots of amazing facts about the animals and their habitats and enjoy meeting the stars of the show – snakes, lizards, frogs and more – your children will have a truly memorable experience! There will be shows at 10.30am, 12pm & 2pm.

Head to the Orangery to create some animal-inspired arts and crafts.

Learn about the underwater life in our Mill Pond with our gardener Ben – join him at the Mill pond at 11.45am & 1.30pm

Normal admission applies.  Unless specified otherwise, all activities run 10am – 3pm.
