Win a chance to help interview Maddie Moate on stage at Millennium Square!


Festival of Nature is BACK this summer with a takeover of We the Curious’ Millennium Square.

Head down to Millennium Square and Anchor Square for the Wild Weekend on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June to celebrate 20 years of Festival of Nature! Two huge outdoor days of free nature activities, stalls and screenings, food and drink, and special guest talks at the harbourside.

They'll be something for everyone at this year's Wild Weekend, with a host of exciting national and local organisations on site to inspire visitors with the marvels of the natural world.

Meet Maddie Moate!

To celebrate our return, we’ve invited BAFTA award winning TV presenter and YouTuber, Maddie Moate, to come down and answer some of her favourite science and environment questions with our festival audience and host a special meet and greet. 

Time: Maddie will be in the Talks Tent at Millennium Square from 4 - 5:30pm for her talk and meet and greet.

Location: Millennium Square, Explore Lane, Bristol, BS1 5SZ

We want you to get involved! Festival of Nature and We the Curious have teamed up for an exciting kids’ competition.

What are you curious to know about nature or the environment? Send in your question and the judges will select three questions to ask Maddie at Millennium Square! Even better, if we select your question we’ll be asking you to come down to Festival of Nature on Saturday 17th June and ask your question in person.
