The RSPB Weekend 2018 will take place from 6-8 April at the East Midlands Conference Centre, University of Nottingham.

Join us for a fun-packed, exciting weekend! Whether you're a first-timer or regular, couple or coming by yourself, there's a warm welcome guaranteed!

Your weekend, your way.

We'll have an exciting and varied programme with a wide range of talks, workshops and activities. Pick and choose what interests you most, and tailor the weekend to suit you.

Be inspired

Come along and hear the latest on our world-class conservation projects and our work with partners and communities. Find out how your support is helping to save nature, from the conservation of puffins to how our precious Welsh woodlands are being protected. We’ll also be joined by special guest speakers including award winning wildlife photographer and film maker, Doug Allan, who has worked on many incredible wildlife series including Blue Planet, Ocean Giants and Planet Earth.

Try something new

Try your hand at something new with our wide range of hands-on workshops and activities. From wildlife sketching or photography to gardening for butterflies, there’s something for every nature enthusiast. You can even discover how to design a nature reserve using our interactive sand box.

Explore the natural world

Join us on an optional excursion on Friday – there is a whole range of exciting places to choose from including Sherwood Forest, Wollaton Hall and RSPB Coombes Valley nature reserve.

Make new connections

Meet fellow members and supporters and celebrate a shared love of nature. There's plenty of time for you to visit the exhibition area to chat to RSPB staff about their work, and browse the wonderful products in our pop-up shop, complete with some great special offers.
