Available on selected weekend dates in December, this is a fantastic opportunity to visit Muncaster Castle in the evenings before Christmas to enjoy an owl flying display after dark.

Saturday 14th December,
Saturday 21st December,
Sunday 22nd December.

These spectacular evenings will begin at 6pm when we welcome you in the Stable Yard. A simple two-course hot supper with hot drink follows, accompanied by a talk from one of our expert bird staff about British owls and the work we do here at Muncaster and with the Hawk Conservancy Trust to conserve them.

The experience then moves to the Old Rose Garden Flying Arena in the Hawk & Owl Centre for the first of the displays seeing these majestic creatures of the night in their own environment gliding silently in low light.

After this the experience moves through the illuminated gardens past the Castle and Tom Fools tree to the Wild Flower Meadow Flying Arena for the second half of Owls by Moonlight.

Finally after an atmospheric walk back through the gardens we return you to the Stable Yard where the evening finishes.
