In spring 2021, join your host Sam Lee in the beautiful Sussex countryside.
Listen to the wondrous evening chorus of birdsong, dine by the fireside (food & drinks provided), and then as darkness falls, step silently into the woods to find that rare bird with its unmistakable nightsong.
Each year, for a short period mid-April, a few thousand nightingales fly to southern UK from Africa. They can be heard in just a small number of special locations, taking up songful residence after dusk. The territorial males serenade loyally each night for no more than six weeks among the blackthorn and forest margins, giving unbelievable privilege to those who know where to go.

In this modern age, with biodiversity in decline and habitats being eroded, the Nightingale has become representative of all that we have to lose. The nightingale is a small, brown, unremarkable looking bird, but it possesses one of nature’s finest singing voices. The bird winters in Africa but spends April to July mating and nesting in Europe and the Middle East. Worldwide, the population is healthy but the numbers visiting England have declined so sharply that it is now on the UK’s Red List of species of the greatest conservation concern.
One of the most memorable features of the nightingale’s song is its rich variety – taking in mellow tones, flute-like sequences and a wide array of chatters, rattles and whistles. A typical singer may use 180 different riffs while a truly accomplished performer may incorporate around 250.
This event will be following all the latest Covid-19 guidelines. We will email all ticket holders with more information on what to expect.
