During the daytime, the WWT London Wetland Centre is bursting with birds, dragonflies, frogs and butterflies. But what mysterious beasts lurk there after dark? In a new series of evening events, the public are invited to see what goes bump, splash and buzz in the night.

The August ‘Night Safaris’ will encapsulate all the after hours excitement of camping without the need of a sweaty sleeping bag or leaky tent. Visitors will be taught how to build a fire and are invited to snuggle up for storytelling inside a cosy Mongolian yurt. As dusk falls there will be pond dipping (with a special underwater camera) and a night hike to spot the seven species of bat, using detectors to listen out for their cheeky chattering.

Tickets cost £20 per child and as an accompanying adult you get to go free; book now for a twilight adventure that’s much more natural than vampires and werewolves. Kitty Knowles

Night Safari evenings take place at the WWT London Wetland Centre, Barnes, on Friday 23 and Friday 30 August. Children must be aged 7 or over.
