Ruislip Woods Festival 2018

This years Festival that was due to take place on Sunday 13th May 2018 near Bayhurst Woods, has unfortunately had to be cancelled. This is due to the excessive amount of rain in April which has made it impossible to use the fields for parking.

The Bat Walks will still be going ahead.

Guided Bat Walks Saturday 12th and 19th May 2018

This year there will be two bat walks, which will take place on

Saturday 12th and 19th May 2018

Like last year we will meet outside the new Woodland Centre by the beach at the Lido as in recent years the path round that side of the lake has seen the best displays of bats. We have some bat detectors but bring your own if you have one and also a torch. Children are welcome but not dogs on this walk please.  Please note that the walk will not take place if it has rained in the two hours previous to the walk as the bats will not come out.

This event has become so popular that we have to limit numbers to 50 and offer these on a first come first served basis, so please arrive early at the Woodland Centre to secure your place. We will be there from 7.30pm. If demand warrants it we may offer another walk on a subsequent weekend. This walk will take place mostly on paths but it is best to wear sturdy shoes and bring a torch. If you have a bat detector please bring it with you. The walk will finish around 10.30pm

Priority will be given to those belonging to the Friends of Ruislip Woods, click here if you wish to Join the Friends

Adults £2.00 children £1.00

Please bring warm clothing, boots and a torch. If you have a bat detector, please bring it with you.
