International Bat Weekend 2020

29th August 2020 to 30th August 2020

Event Overview

This annual celebration of bats sees bat events for the public taking place across the country.  This year there may be some changes to plans, depending on COVID guidelines. 

Bat groups, park rangers and community groups organise fantastic bat walks and talks at dusk, as well some day time fun days!

This celebration of bats is held by bat groups and the Bat Conservation Trust, to coincide with International Bat Night (formerly European Bat Night) which is organised by Eurobats.

We aim to encourage thousands of people across the country to see and hear bats in their natural environment by taking part in a range of events organised by local bat groups, wildlife trusts, countryside rangers and other organisations across the country.’
