Summer Flight Night

Home >> Experience >> Summer Flight Night

The summer is the perfect time for entertaining guests, which is exactly why we've created our sizzling Summer Flight Night demonstration! This out-of-hours evening event is our invitation to owl and bird of prey enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy a night of food, fun and feathered friends within the centre's surroundings.

As well as an exclusive extended flying demonstration featuring the incredible range of species in the centre's display team, your ticket also includes a main meal and refreshments - plus an opportunity to visit our collection of over 60 owls and birds of prey - making it the perfect way for your friends and family to experience everything Baytree Owl and Wildlife Centre has to offer!

When is it?

Our Summer Flight Night will be taking place on Saturday the 13th of July 2024 and Saturday the 31st of August 2024.

This is a special evening event which will run outside of our regular opening hours from 5:00pm - 8:00pm (main flying demonstration event to finish 7:15 - 7:30pm approx. followed by an opportunity to browse the collection until 8:00pm.)

What is It?

You could think of our Summer Flight Night as the ultimate version of our usual flying demonstration - an extended, action-packed spectacle involving an exciting range of owl and bird of prey species from the centre's collection doing what they do best!

The session will kick off with the first half of our display, with engaging commentary from our falconry team focusing on how each bird is uniquely adapted for its own style of flight. The takeoff platform will allow you to experience their power and majesty up close as they swoop right over your head. Over the course of the evening, you'll be introduced to owls, falcons, eagles and more - plus a few other surprises too!


Half way through, we'll take a break for food and refreshments - a pulled pork burger for adults and chicken nuggets for children (a vegan/vegetarian alternative will also be available).   


Following the refreshment break, we'll continue with the second half of the display, after which there will be an opportunity to walk around the collection and meet the rest of our birds.
