Floral Fringe Fair
Saturday June 3rd and Sunday June 4th at Knepp Castle Estate, Shipley, West Sussex, RH13 8LJ
10.30am to 5pm
We've attended this event the past five years and seen it grow and grow. A great event for anyone with an interest in wildlife and the countryside. A quirky, foodie, arty, plantaholics wildlife event with a vintage twist! Set on the 3,500 acre Knepp Estate, which is the subject of an amazing rewilding project. We will have a stand to speak about our local bats, promote the group and hopefully raise money to help support our work. If you think you might be able to help on either day, even if just for a couple of hours, please contact us at events(at)sussexbatgroup.org.uk
