Eaton Park Rotunda and North Park Meadow

Discover the wildlife in our city and how you can help it thrive.

Scything demonstrations, displays, walks and talks on bats, butterflies, composting, fruit trees, meadows, moths, orchards, swifts, wildflowers and more… Meet and chat with experts. Pick up tips and ideas for how to take action for wildlife in your corner of norwich.

Great things for kids – mini-beast hunts and making papier mache pots for wildflower plug plants to take home and plant in your window sill, allotment or garden.

One man went to mow (10am to 3pm)
Step back in time and watch scything guru Richard Brown (Chair of Scything Association of Britain and Ireland and featured in BBC’s The Green Planet) and his team mow the 1.5 acre North Park Meadow. Find out all about the UK’s scything renaissance and the role scything can play in increasing biodiversity in meadows and other green spaces. Scything sets will be available to buy on the day.
