There are currently ROADWORKS on Harvey’s Lane, when coming into Branching Out from B2192. Don’t be fooled by the openess of the road….it’s closed right at our end.

To gain access to us, please follow Bradford’s Lane from A26.

We have no idea how long this will last, and having spoken to the workmen today, they don’t, either!!

Good luck….hopefully see you soon!

Branching Out Adventures is still open for business and remains unaffected by the unfortunate closure of Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum. This lovely lot will be here to welcome you during our usual seasonal opening hours for some adrenaline fuelled action up in the trees.

Remember, we operate in all weathers….the only exceptions being very high winds and lightning above our heads! Bring the right gear and you’ll have a whale of a time!! Can’t wait to see you all soon!!

The UK’s largest woodland conservation charity and the county’s wildlife conservation charity will be the focus of this term’s free half-term education initiative at Branching Out Adventures.

On Wednesday 24th October, the team from The Woodland Trust will set up ‘camp’ at Branching Out Adventures, Halland near Lewes, as part of its mission to protect the country’s woods, trees and restore ancient woodland for the benefit of wildlife and people. On Friday 26th and Saturday 27th, October, Sussex Wildlife Trust will take over to spread the important message that 60 per cent of our wildlife are in decline and 1 in 10 are heading for UK extinction.

Kate Hall of the Woodland Trust said: “It’s going to be a whole lot of fun. We’ve got lots of educational and fun activities to share with families and children, as well as spot prizes and some ‘Awesome Autumn Adventures’. Do you know why leaves turn red and gold in the autumn? Why not come along and find out!”

Mark Oakden of Branching Out Adventures, said: “Our mission is to encourage families to get out into nature. We want everyone to appreciate the majestic nature and importance of trees and wildlife. We’re delighted that both The Woodland Trust and Sussex Wildlife Trust will be with us during the autumn half term. Come along and meet these amazing charities, hear about the work they are doing and learn lots about local nature and wildlife.”

The Woodland Trust is the country’s largest woodland conservation charity with more than 1,000 sites. Sussex Wildlife Trust focuses on protecting the wonderfully rich natural life that is found across our towns, countryside and coast. It manages over 30 nature reserves in Sussex.

World Outdoor Classroom Day is on the horizon and we’re offering Sussex schools the chance to win an outdoor lesson for their entire class in the woods.

Branching Out Adventures is an official partner of the global campaign to encourage schools to take lessons outdoors.

Mark Oakden of Branching Out Adventures said: “We are delighted to be partnering with World Outdoor Classroom Day this year. The winning class can develop their teamwork and problem solving abilities, learn about nature, challenge themselves in the trees, practice their maths skills and have fun in the Sussex woodland. Sounds like a pretty good day at school to me!”

Areas of the curriculum covered in addition to physical education include, basic operations, measurement and distance, as well as physical geography. Lesson plans can be customised to suit the winning class teacher’s request.

“From our own experience of school visits to Branching Out, teachers report some powerful outcomes. Pupil behaviour improves, whole classes are excited to learn and individuals who may feel inhibited by the curriculum often thrive in an outdoor environment,” said Mark.

Both pupils and teachers can enter. To enter email: info@branchingoutadventures.co.uk saying why your class (max 33 pupils) deserves to win the session at Branching Out Adventures by October 19, 2018. Your prize can be taken on an agreed day Monday to Wednesday, term time only.

Outdoor Classroom Day is traditionally celebrated on November 1.  In 2017 more than half a million UK pupils took part

This weekend, Bentley plays host to Brainchild Festival. So….don’t worry when you arrive, Branching Out is open as usual, from 10am to 5pm. When you arrive, go to the festival entrance (our usual way in) and the Brainchild guys will guide you in to us.

Hopefully see lots of you here at the weekend.

A healthy balance of gaming and being active, as shown here by the amazing chaps! These guys have been learning the moves from Fortnite and applying them to keeping healthy outdoors, and we loved their demonstration!

Thanks you lot, well done!
