The Discover Festival is back for its third year, with an exciting programme of over 200 events to help you discover something new in South Gloucestershire. The festival runs from 11th September to 31st October. Activities include nature walks, heritage open days, advice sessions, concerts and crafts – there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The festival is organised by South Gloucestershire Council, local residents, community groups and businesses.
Upcoming Discover Festival events in Bradley Stoke include:
Saturday 27th September 11am – 1pm at Bradley Stoke Library
Hedgehogs in our environment – a family workshop
Enjoy two short talks followed by hedgehog story and craft activity. No dogs allowed except guide dogs. Age: Not suitable for under 3s. Booking required.
Sunday 28th September 10am from Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre
Autumn nature walk
From birds to berries; from moths to mushrooms – find out about the amazing diversity of suburban wildlife on this guided walk. The walk will be in the natural environment over uneven ground; so regrettably will be unsuitable for wheelchairs or buggies. Participants should wear suitable footwear and weatherproof clothing. Bring binoculars if you have them. No dogs allowed except guide dogs. Age: 6+
Friday 3rd October 6.30pm from Bradley Stoke Leisure Centre
Bat walk in the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve
In our after-dark walk, you’ll be provided with a ‘bat detector’ and shown how to identify the various species of bat which live on the reserve. This walk will be in the dark, over uneven ground, and regrettably is not suitable for wheelchairs or buggies. You will need to wear warm clothes and stout shoes and bring a torch. No dogs allowed except guide dogs. Age: 6+. Not suitable for very young children as the group may walk quite fast between sites. Booking required.
Saturday 4th October 10am – 4pm at Bradley Stoke Library
Discover Bradley Stoke Radio – BSR 103.4FM
Drop in and meet volunteers from your local community radio station. Discover what we do and how you can get involved.
More Discover Festival events (taking place after 4th October) will be listed in the October edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine.
