A series of Bat Nights, led by Philip Parker from the Norfolk Bats in Churches Project will be held in July and August.



All nights have a similar format and will include an introductory talk on bats, how they use the church and churchyard and some of the challenges that churches face when living with bats. The talk has been updated and includes many new videos.  There will be children’s craft activities (with prizes!) plus the opportunity to watch the bats emerge from the church using state of the art infra-red cameras.  There may even be some captive bats to see at close quarters!

Free to attend, donations welcome and refreshments available
