FOLLOWING huge demand in 2018, ​Barra Night Life​ is back, offering new outdoor adventures, opportunities to learn about nature at night and a unique sociable Night Out on the ​Isle of Walney Community Growing Space​.

Art Gene’s ​Extreme Views​ programme is delivered in partnership with ​The Islands and Bays of Barrow Coastal Team​ and Art Gene’s Allotment Soup​ project.

This overnight, family friendly event explores the ‘wild’ side of the site on Walney Island, which has been developed into a community growing space by Barrow based charity ​Art Gene​ since 2015, and with ​the hard work of lots of local people who manage allotment plots or contribute to regular volunteer work days.

Highlights for this year include an illuminated night garden art installation, a feast of produce cooked up on site and a guided wildflower safari, brought to you by artists, ecologists and historians from Barrow and beyond.

Pitch your tent from 5pm on Saturday August 10, and join in with a range of family friendly activities throughout the evening and the chance to explore the allotment at night (camping optional).

On Sunday August 11 visitors regroup to share breakfast and discover what has been caught in the moth traps, before finishing at 10am.

Visitors are advised to bring your own food for the barbecue.

All are welcome at this free family friendly event. Parents and carers will be required to supervise their children at all times. No dogs are allowed.

When booking please give numbers of adults and children, and specify how many tents you will bring if camping. Camping spots must be booked in advance.
