Secret World’s Wild Weekend

Something wild is coming soon…

We’re very excited to bring you a new event for the late May bank holiday. If you enjoy coming to our Fun Days, we think you’re going to like this.

Our “Wild Weekend” takes all the best bits from our Fun Days – wildlife talks, learning workshops, craft market, giant games, fundraising activities, delicious food – and makes them bigger and better! There’s more to do, with a big focus on the environment, wildlife, and sustainability.

Join us for two days of wild fun on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May. Please see below for tickets, and read on to see what we’ve got planned…

Talks

Opportunities to learn from the Secret World team about lots of topics, including conservations, the different species we help, and the history of Secret World.

We’ll also have free and paid talks from a range of guest speakers, including Martin Hughes-Games, Brigit Strawbridge, Billy Heaney, and Chris Sperring MBE.

Eco craft market

Enjoy a wide range of crafters and traders selling green, recycled, and sustainable products. Confirmed so far: The Mendip Maker; The Bare Pig Cosmetics; Spangled Treasures; Essence & Bloom Gift Co; BambooBandit; Kings Gardening Nursery; Manor House Hives, and Wendy’s Preserves.

The Secret World gift shop will be there, of course, selling a selection of new and pre-loved goods.

Learning and fun zone

You’ll enjoy yourself so much you won’t realise it’s educational!

A range of practical activities to engage your hands and brain, all themed around nature. We’ll be joined by other wildlife organisations, including Somerset Wildlife Trust, RSPCA, Hawk and Owl Trust, Burnham Beekeepers, and Action Against Foxhunting.

Camping

Make a weekend of it, with camping available Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night. We’re running some special activities that are only available to campers!
