Come and explore the history and wildlife of Cirencester’s Roman Amphitheatre on Saturday 9th September. There will be a tour and talk around the amphitheatre, both morning and afternoon, with a ‘Bat Walk’ in the evening.
EVENING BAT WALK (19.15) – As the sun goes down a short talk will be given by Cirencester Wildlife Group about British bats and their habitat; this will take place outdoors by the Obelisk garden. Then we will head off for a walk round the amphitheatre in the dark to see what we can find – please bring a torch! Bat detectors will be available but, if you have your own, bring it along. NB: If the weather is very wet this walk may be cancelled at short notice – bats stay at home when it rains as the flying insects they like to eat do not come out when it’s wet!
All tours will start from the car park at the Obelisk on Cotswold Avenue. Please note that there are no toilet or refreshment facilities at the Amphitheatre. The site is steep in places, uneven and exposed so please wear stout footwear and clothing appropriate for the weather conditions.
Children are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
