The Great Bog Weekend

Join us on the last weekend of July to celebrate World Bog Day.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

We'll be having a big celebration on the last weekend of July to celebrate Bog Day. Come and check out our newly updated information room, play some moorland themed games and have a look at the Bogtastic Van from Moors for the Future.

The Bogtastic van is the world’s first bog in a van! It’s kitted out with artwork, sound and a spongy floor to emulate the experience of being on moorland. Aimed at people of all ages, it helps spread the message that bogs are fantastic.
