Festival goers are Wild About Mid Sussex

Local residents are invited to get back in touch with nature at the Wild About Mid Sussex event on Saturday 6 June 2015.

Wild About Mid Sussex celebrates the wonderful countryside that surrounds the towns and villages of Mid Sussex. It is totally free to enter and takes place at St John’s Park in Burgess Hill from 10am until 5pm.

Wildlife conservation groups from all over the country provide informative displays and exhibitions to help local people find out about protecting local wildlife and the varied habitats of Mid Sussex.

There will be fun for all the family with face painting for young children and the chance to see some native wildlife up close including bats, bees, stag beetles and pond creatures. Adventurous souls who are looking to meet wildlife from further afield will be able to see exotic foreigners such as Amazonian tree frogs, gargoyle geckos, pythons and a 4ft rhino iguana that loves to be stroked.

“Wild About Mid Sussex is fast becoming one of the most popular events at the Burgess Hill Summer Festival,” said Councillor Pru Moore, Mid Sussex District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure and Sustainability. “Last year over three thousand local people came along to get a close look at the wild animals and find out more about the valuable conservation projects we have in the area. It looks set to be another wonderful event this year so why not head down to St John’s Park on 6 June to take a walk on the wild side!”

‘Wild About Mid Sussex’ is organised by the ‘Friends of Burgess Hill Green Circle’ group, in partnership with Mid Sussex District Council and Burgess Hill Town Council. The event marks the start of the Burgess Hill Summer Festival, a nine day celebration of music, dance, comedy, art, crafts, theatre, nature, literature and history. Highlights include Jazz legend Chris Barber, an evening with prize winning novelist Alison MacLeod and a retelling of Romeo and Juliet with Debs Newbold.
