Chick Cuddles and Handling

Come and join us on Saturday 18 or Sunday 19 April for two very special Celebration of Springtime days.

We are delighted to have Hens for Live join us with their adorable chicks for chick cuddling and handling in the Tudor Great Barn. 

In addition to our Celebration of Springtime bird feeder make and take*, nature detective trail and spring time quiz there will also be dressing up activities and special chick crafts lead by Hens for Live who will also talk about the best ways to love and care for hens of all ages. 

Explore the beautiful grounds at Basing House and learn more about nature and wildlife this weekend from the experts with charities like the Wildlife Trust, Woodland Trust and Butterfly Conservation Trust exhibiting across the site. 

The spring flowers will be out for delightful walks and The Bothy Tea Room open for tea and cake, the perfect treat for a busy day of family fun. 


*Bird feeder make and take (£2) cost is in addition to entry fees and can be booked online advance.
