Bat Nights at Creswell Crags

Bat Nights at Creswell Crags

Fri, 21st Aug 2020 - Fri, 28th Aug 2020

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Creswell Crags, Worksop United Kingdom (UK)

Join Derrick Eames, resident Bat Man at Creswell Crags, for an illustrated talk and guided walk into the gorge at dusk to see these incredible creatures feed. We have up to 9 species of bats at Creswell Crags, including some that are a rare sight! This is usually a sell out event. We’ve added extra dates this year to ensure demand is met – but we still expect it to be very popular! Book early!

This event is taking place on 21 August and 28 August. PLEASE NOTE: The April and May Bat Nights were cancelled due to measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. At this time, the August events are still scheduled to take place and tickets are on sale. Should the event not be able to take place, all tickets will be refunded and ticket holders notified before the event.

7:30pm start, with refreshments (tea, coffee, juice and biscuits) available from 7.15pm.

£10 per person. We don’t recommend this event for younger children, unless they have a special interest in bats and wildlife.

Sensible clothing and footwear required, as you will be outdoors for a lot of the event. The Visitor Centre, where the tour will take place, is fully accessible. The night will include a walk into the gorge, which is on wide, level footpaths. It can be muddy.
Bookings are via Eventbrite only at this stage – some tickets may be released for sale in the visitor centre closer to the date, but we cannot guarantee this will happen as it will depend on availability. If booking via Eventbrite is a problem, please call 01909 720378, and our team will be happy to help.

Astronomy Nights

Mon, 5th Oct 2020

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Creswell Crags, Worksop United Kingdom (UK)


See the stars like never before, with expert astronomer, Paul Money.

Join Paul for an insightful talk about the night’s sky, before heading out into the evening, to look through telescopes at the constellations (weather permitting – the event will still go ahead in cloudy weather but the possibilities for stargazing will obviously be reduced).

All equipment is provided, tea and coffee will also be provided on arrival. Remember to dress warm and sensibly – you will be outdoors for some of the event. Sensible footwear is important – the paths can be muddy. The talk will take place in the Visitor Centre, which is fully accessible. The outside space is accessed via level paths but these might not be suitable for all access needs.
Booking essential – book via Eventbrite. If you have any problems booking via Eventbrite, please call 01909 720378 and our team will be happy to help.
Arrive at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. There is a car park at the Visitor Centre and parking fees are waived for special events.
£10 per person. The event is suitable for adults, teenagers, and older children if they have a special interest in astronomy.

PLEASE NOTE: The March date for Astronomy Night was cancelled due to measures in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The October Astronomy Night is, at this time, expected to go ahead as planned and tickets are on on sale.

This event always sells out! Book today!
