Event Details


Taking place from Monday 27 July – Sunday 9 August, this virtual family festival at the National History Museum aims to connect people with nature and teach children about biodiversity and the environment.  Across a two-week period, Pukka Herbs, and the Natural History Museum hope to inspire people of all ages to tune in and embrace the nature that is on their doorstep.

The jam-packed programme of free digital activities will be hosted on the Natural History Museum website with content to engage all ages such as wildlife arts and crafts, a live quiz and nature-based bingo – an amazing checklist of plants and animals to spot this summer.

  • Plant club – a series of downloadable resources to help identify local plants and report sightings as a citizen scientist. The activities will encourage families to look for different plant species and learn about the life cycle of plants.
  • Pukka Herbs ‘how-to’ series – focusing on three pollinator-friendly herbs used in Pukka Herbs organic teas – mint, lavender and chamomile – these expert-led videos will give families the chance to get creative with a variety of makes and bakes.
  • Noisy Nature – a fun activity to encourage families to use their sense of hearing to connect with local wildlife and take a moment to enjoy and relax in nature.
  • Live Natural History quiz – join in with a live YouTube quiz on Friday 31 July and test your knowledge of natural history.
