If you’ve been inspired by the BBC’s Springwatch with Bill Oddie, come to London’s first ever BBC Springwatch festival. This brand new Coin Street Festival event opens your eyes to the wonders of nature in our great city.

Be inspired by the environment around you with a range of hands-on activities for families and children, foreshore exploration with Thames 21 and bird spotting with the RSPB.  Enjoy live jazz and street theatre along the riverside walkway plus stalls selling fresh produce and cooking demonstrations.

Find out about BBC Breathing Places and how you can transform a space for wildlife where you live. Join expert guides for ‘behind the scenes’ talks, have a go at being a natural history TV presenter, and hear film-makers explain how the BBC’s acclaimed Planet Earth series was made.
