Go wild at Weoley Castle Ruins for our amazing Earth Day event.

We’re joining The Wild Escape to celebrate Earth Day 2023 in our wonderful green space. Home to foxes, badgers, buzzards and squirrels, the ruins are a perfect site for urban nature.

Drop-in to various activities throughout the day:

  • Join ZooLab to get up close and hands-on with some real live animals as we talk all about our changing planet and the challenges facing nature. Meet the likes of snakes, tarantulas and giant snails in this exciting encounter session that hopes to 'Amaze, Educate and Inspire' all ages. Shows available throughout the day on a first-come-first-served basis.

  • Collect a bug pot and explore the site recording your finds.

  • Make your own clay tile inspired by the wildlife at the site.

  • Make an earth seed bomb with Wild Earth Movement.
