Kent Wildlife Trust is hosting an exciting series of family ‘Discovery Day’ events this May half-term at its Tyland Barn Visitor Centre, Sandling near Maidstone.

The Trust’s Community Education Officer, Mary Blackwell, said: “On Friday 31st May
from 10am – 12 noon and 1.30 – 3.30pm, our brand new Theatre of the Pond event will see trained actress and artist, Victoria Wainwright, helping intrepid budding performers to explore the wildlife in a pond before unleashing their creativity and creating a pond-life play!

“And on Thursday 30th May from 10.30am – 12.30pm our ‘natural’ treasure hunt and I-spy style walk will let you get right up close to nature, in the thick of the Kent countryside at Blue Bell Hill. Good walking shoes are a must and dogs on leads are welcome.

“These events are full-on, hands-on, packed-with-excitement days. Kids, aged eight and above, will love them (bring a grown up with you), and they are also great fun for adults.”

Booking is essential. Call 01622 662 012 to reserve places. Each session costs £5 per person.

Tyland Barn Visitor Centre is open daily from 10am – 5pm throughout half-term, with free parking, accessible walks in the grounds, interactive wildlife features in the barn, ice creams, hot and cold snacks, and drinks in the café.
