Saturday 29th June 2019
Wild Night Out is a dedicated date in the diary for us all to get outside. From family camp outs and mini garden festivals, to night-time nature walks and superb stargazing sessions, here’s your chance to do something fun and adventurous with family and friends outdoors.
On Saturday 29th June 2019, people across the UK will be enjoying fun adventures outdoors, both big and small. And we’d love you to join us! It’s time to forget the stresses of work or school, escape the pressures of technology and reconnect with the natural world around us.
Let Your Imagination Go WILD!
Planning your own Wild Night Out is easy; here are some great ways you can get involved. Don’t forget to share your adventures and ideas using #WildNightOut2019 to inspire others.
A great one for young families, pitching a pop up tent in your back garden is an easy and fun way to introduce kids to the outdoors close to home. Snacks, cosy sleeping bags and a night light are all you need. Check out this great post from our friends at Dear Mummy Blog who spent a Wild Night Out in their garden last year: click here.
Not able to get to a festival this year? Why not create your own at your very own home? Dress your tent with bunting and fairy lights, break out the party food and transform your garden into your private festival field.
Wrap up warm and step outside to look up and enjoy the clear night sky. Find a countryside spot close to home where light pollution is low, and you’ll experience an interstellar sightseeing adventure like no other. Click here to read about Britain’s top stargazing spots.
Night Nature Walk
The natural world at night is a wonderous place. Your senses will heighten as you hear the nocturnal critters going about their business around you.
There’s no greater pleasure than cooking marshmallows and other treats over a campfire. Firepits and portable grills are safe, simple and fun ways to enjoy a campfire. Our friends at Scrapbook Blog enjoy toasting treats over a fire last year for Wild Night Out; take a look here.
