Owl Evening

Home >> Experience >> Owl Evening

Now that the dark nights are drawing in, it's all too tempting to spend the evenings curled up on the sofa with a warm drink. But thanks to our exciting Owl Evening event, it doesn't have to be this way!

Come and spend a magical evening in the company of the owls from our flying demonstration team. Set in the warm glow of our softly lit indoor arena, this enchanted setting sets the perfect ambience for a cosy yet thrilling spectacle.

So, wrap up warm, pull up a seat and prepare to be amazed!

When is it?

Our Owl Evenings take place on pre-selected dates throughout late autumn and winter. Our last upcoming date for this season is Saturday the 17th of February 2024.


Advance bookings are also available for the first dates of next years' season: Saturday the 26th of October 2024 and Saturday the 7th of December 2024.  

These are special evening events which will run outside of our regular opening hours from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.

What is It?

The Owl Evening is a jam-packed extravaganza aimed at owl enthusiasts, taking an in-depth look into the unique qualities that make owls such unique predators. Due to their nocturnal hunting habits and eerily silent flight, you could say that a still winter evening is the perfect opportunity to appreciate their most defining features!

We start with an introduction by our head falconer detailing the history of how the centre came to be the attraction it is today, including a rundown of some of the amazing species in our collection. We then delve directly into the world of owls, bringing in each one in turn whilst we provide engaging facts and commentary - not just about our individual birds, but also giving insight into how each one would behave and adapt in the wild. 

Half way though the demonstration, we will pause for a warm-up break for some hot soup and refreshments, and then return straight back to the action. Throughout the evening, you can expect to meet a range of species representing owls from all over the world, from the ghost-like barn owl to the impressive western Siberian eagle owl - and many more besides!

Anything Else I Need to Know?

Further information will be e-mailed to ticket holders prior to the event.

2) Photography will be allowed whilst inside the polytunnel. However, we politely request that no flash is used. Therefore, we recommend using a camera setup adapted to low-level lighting.
