Fright Sight! A chilling adventure at Old Moor. 6.45 pm to 8 pm
Guided walks are taking a dark twist at RSPB Old Moor this November. Tin Pot Theatre return to the reserve with their promenade outdoor production Fright Sight!
Visitors will be taken on a devilishly dark walk around the reserve to discover untold tales from the eighteenth century and meet characters along the way who will tell how not everyone wanted to give nature a home. They will find out if a sprinkling of magical bird seed can change the course of history and create a place for wildlife to grow and flourish.
Tickets £8 non members and £7 RSPB Members and Children.
Suitable for children over 6 years old.
The performance will go ahead whatever the weather so dress accordingly and wear suitable walking shoes. Ghoulish dress encouraged.
Reindeer Whispering 10 am – 4 pm
Santa will be here at Old Moor with his very favourite reindeer. Santa has a gift for all good girls and boys. Come and see the man himself and tell him what's on your Christmas list and then go and see the reindeer and let them know where to deliver your presents on Christmas Eve.
Make Christmas cards and crafts in the classroom to take home to your family. Then why not have a splishy, splashy, nose tingling walk around the reserve followed by a yummy snack and hot chocolate in our cafe, or buy last minute gifts in our shop.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
Reserve entry fee applies: £8 family, £4 adults, £2 children, £2.50 concessions. RSPB members free.
Booking essential to meet Santa in his grotto (ticket will be issued on payment of reserve entry), not required for crafts or to meet the reindeer.
