Beach events in July to accompany the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at Sewerby Hall and Gardens

To accompany the hugely popular ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, which is on loan from the Natural History Museum in London, there will be events in July in association with The Deep, one of the exhibition’s partners.

On Saturdays 2 and 16 July, from 11am – 3pm, there will be a chance to explore the amazing coastline on the doorstep of Sewerby Hall & Gardens, and try to identify the variety of flora and fauna, seaweed, shells and other animals, whilst investigating ecology on the beach.

Participants can try their hand at beachcombing, then create some interesting art from what they find, and discover more about the amazing beach they are on and why it is a ‘No Take Zone’.

Visitors can learn about the local geology and try to identify the different types of rocks found on the beach.

There will also be a range of activities taking place in the Orangery at Sewerby Hall (standard entry charges apply) including seaweed and shell identification, investigation into litter on beaches and in the ocean, and how the local coastal area has been affected over time, the impact of climate change, and much more!

Beach activities will be free of charge, and no booking is required. For the activities in The Orangery, visitors can save on admission to Sewerby Hall and Gardens by booking online in advance at www.sewerbyhall.co.uk

Those taking part in beach activities should wear sturdy footwear, and be aware that the sessions are subject to tide times and weather conditions.

The area of the beach where the events are taking place is a ‘No Take Zone’, because it is located within the Flamborough Head European Marine Site, protecting the important chalk habitat and breeding seabird colony around the headland.

For full details of the beach events on 2 and 16 July, visit: https://www.thedeep.co.uk/plan-your-visit/whats-on

The ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ exhibition in Sewerby Hall features exceptional images capturing fascinating animal behaviour, spectacular species and the breathtaking diversity of the natural world. It is on display until Sunday, 17 July.

‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ is the most prestigious photography event of its kind, providing a global platform that showcases the natural world’s most astonishing and challenging sights for over 55 years.

Entry to the exhibition is included in the admission price, and a range of associated merchandise is on sale in the Welcome Centre throughout the run of the exhibition.
