PLEASE NOTE THERE HAS BEEN CHANGES TO THE ADVERTISED TIMES OF THE ACTIVITIES.  SEE THE FOLLOWING NEWS POST FOR TIMES.

For one night only, Art Gene are hosting Barra Night Life- a free, bespoke night-time event taking place on Walney Island. An event bringing together Art Gene’s Allotment Soup and Landscape Working Party projects.

The exciting, alternative social event will involve jam making, a night of BBQ’s and bonfires, moth trapping, bat detecting, a walk in the dark and a late-night outdoor cinema with the chance to camp out on the community growing field.

 

 

AGENDA

Moths, Bats and BBQ’s, 7-10 pm

Join us for a big BBQ and take a close look at some night time flying creatures around our light trap installations. Cooking up some of the home grown produce, this is a social event, a chance to meet new people and have an insight into the less visible species and systems in the natural world. Some food will be provided but you may wish to bring your own BBQ food and drinks.
