Cotswold Wildlife Park has a series of events - take a look at what we've got planned over the next few months below.

2014

Cotswold Falconry

  • Every weekend from 19th July to 23rd August

  • 24th & 25th August

  • Join us at the Park and see free flying Bird of Prey demonstrations by the team from Cotswold Falconry. Some birds will swoop low over your heads and some will soar high in the sky over the Park’s beautiful grounds. See a variety of different birds from eagles to owls in these exciting demonstrations by Cotswold Falconry, which take place at 1.00 p.m. and 3.30 p.m. on the lawns in front of the Manor house.

Fairthorpe Car Rally

  • 10th August

RHS Plant Day

  • 10th September

    On Wednesday 10th September, we have a gardener’s day out with a difference.  The Park is delighted to be hosting over 20 members of the Royal Horticultural Society’s ‘Herbaceous’ and ‘Tender Ornamental’ Plant Committees. They will be keen to share their combined 600 years plus of gardening wisdom and passion for plants with visitors. There will also be a range of Garden talks, as well as Plant demonstrations and displays.

    Our gardens will be in their late summer splendour, and the wide range of plants grown at the Park will be supplemented (for this day only) by interesting and unusual plants displayed by the Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew) and others.

    If you have a special plant you would like to bring along, please see below for details.

    To celebrate the involvement of the RHS with this event, entry to the Park is free for RHS Members on Wednesday 10th September (valid RHS membership card must be shown at entrance).  The Park will be open as usual from 10am till 6pm, with Plant Day Activities from 11am till 4pm.

    This one-off event will make an ideal day out for Garden Clubs and Societies: groups of 20 + paying persons can qualify for our group rate of £11.50 for adults and £8.00 over 65s and children (aged 3 to 16 years). Any individual RHS members within groups will qualify for free entry on production of their membership card.

    In addition to the extensive garden areas, there are over 250 species of animals on view.

    Arrangements for the day may be subject to alteration.

    Special Plants: We are thinking of unusual, interesting and well grown specimens for other plant enthusiasts to enjoy. If you would like to bring along a specimen it must be by prior arrangement with us at gardens@cotswoldwildlifepark.co.uk
    We will inspect all plants for pest and diseases prior to putting them on display, and reserve the right to decline specimens.
