Rare chance for families to discover the secret world of Flat Holm Island after dark

This weekend families in and around Cardiff are invited to spend a night in nature’s home by taking part in RSPB Cymru’s Big Wild Sleepout.

On Saturday 30 July, an extra special Big Wild Sleepout will be taking place on Flat Holm Island. Families are invited to spend a wild night on the island thanks to RSPB Cymru’s Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff project, delivered in partnership with the City of Cardiff Council.

Surrounded by the amazing Severn Estuary, families can enjoy pirate-sized views of Cardiff and its coastline, discover the island’s natural treasure on a shoreline safari, hunt for bugs, count the stars, toast marshmallows and enjoy a family camping trip like no other.

Carolyn Robertson, Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff’s Project Manager, said: “We’re so excited to be able to offer families this wild island adventure – a night we’re sure they won’t forget and a chance to learn more about Flat Holm’s amazing wildlife. From the sea birds that make their home there and the island’s myths and legends – it’s a truly magical place.”

Booking is essential, with tickets for adult RSPB members £26, adult non-members £32, child RSPB members £13 and child non-member £17. All tickets include the return boat crossing, landing fees, camping fees, all guided activities. To book please visit the website here.

The Big Wild Sleepout is part of the RSPB’s Giving Nature a Home campaign, which is aimed at inspiring everyone to do their bit for nature. This year’s Big Wild Sleepout is being supported by Rohan, designer and supplier of outdoor clothing and footwear.

Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff is RSPB Cymru’s flagship project delivered in partnership with the City of Cardiff Council and funded by Tesco customers through the Welsh Government’s carrier bag levy. The project aims to engage thousands of children and their families across Cardiff with wildlife; encouraging them to connect with the nature on their doorstep and take action to support it.
