    Virtual Birdfair

    This year Birdfair is going digital! More...

    This year Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust made the difficult decision not to go ahead with Birdfair 2020. The response from the public, exhibitors and regular guests to take Birdfair digital was tremendously encouraging. So this year we have Virtual Birdfair! The line up includes:

    • Live on Friday Night - The State of Nature Question Time with Chris Packham, Jane Goodall, Lizzie Daley, Craig Bennett, Sir John Boyd, Liz Bonin, Will Travers and Chair Dominic Dyer.
    • Pre-recorded events including “Why the 2020’s need to be the decade of nature’s recovery” with Craig Bennett and "The Self-isolating Bird Club" – A Birdfair Special with Chris Packham and Megan McCubbin, as well as a wide range of important wildlife, eco-tourism and conservation topics. 
    • Live webinars and debates daily including "The future of beavers in Britain" and "The state of the earth – The next generation" chaired by Dominic Dyer with Mya-Rose Craig, James Miller, Dara McAnulty and Sophie Pavelle.
    • And much more!

    Virtual Birdfair starts on Tuesday 18th August until Sunday 23rd August.
