Full Moon Walk March| Women Only

Don't miss this special opportunity to discover the wonders of RSPB Arne by moonlight, in an event uniquely created by women for women.

This event is open to anybody who identifies as a woman. We also welcome non binary people who feel comfortable in a women's only space to this event.

At Arne we believe no one should feel unable to enjoy the solace nature has to offer, especially the enthralling spectacle of a moonlit stroll in the woodland.

Please note the new start time

Join us for a 5:00pm start, for a 2 hour guided walk around the reserve, taking in the beauty of the full moon and the night sky, lead by a female RSPB member of staff.

Disclaimer: If the weather is overcast, the event will STILL GO AHEAD as planned, ticket holders will still be able to enjoy a guided safe night-time walk at Arne.

Tickets include a flask of hot chocolate to enjoy while you take in the beauty of the full moon sky.

(non-members parking included in the ticket for the duration of the event only).

If you have any unanswered questions, please email us at
