Welly Washing Fun at Bristol Aquarium

This weekend Bristol Aquarium is hosting Wendy’s Welly Wash Weekend and is giving 15% off to any full paying visitors who head along to the Aquarium wearing their wellingtons.*

Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 April 2017 will see children and adults of all ages wearing wellingtons through the city centre of Bristol, as the Harbourside attraction welcomes visitors to wash their wellingtons.

Wendy’s welly wash weekend is to encourage families to check, clean and dry their wellingtons when out and about to stop the spread of invasive species.

Wendy Desyllas, Horticulturist at Bristol Aquarium said: “I’m so excited to have some welly washing fun this weekend at the Aquarium! Come and join in practising how to wash your wellies properly and learn why it is so important for the future of our British waters!”

The weekends’ activities include a ‘muddy puddle’ where visitors can get their wellingtons nice and dirty before learning how and why to clean them off again.

The event at Bristol Aquarium marks the end of Invasive Species Week held by GB non-native species secretariat.
