Welcome to our 380 seat open air Living Wetland Theatre where you can watch birds flying overhead and discover how each bird is adapted to the wetlands they live in.
Sit back and relax and watch one of our films or interactive live shows hosted by our specialist team as they uncover the science behind wetland conservation.
Immerse yourself into the sights and sounds of a UK wetland. Look out for the elusive bearded reedlings, watch ducks diving in the underwater duck tank and learn about butterflies, dragonflies and pond creatures that rely on wetlands for their survival. Our volunteers will be on hand to help you get the best out of your wetland walk.
Thanks to support form the Heritage Lottery Fund we’ve been working on the designs for our 380 seat open air Living Wetland Theatre and aviary. Over the last year we have been working with a number of birds to get them ready for the free flight demonstrations. We’ve been training and practising free flight with the birds. To find out more watch some of our videos. We have also successfully bred azure and blue-tailed damselflies for the first time in captivity. These insects will be part of our wetland aviary feature.
