Mr Fox will return to Manvers nature reserve

AN annual extravaganza of colour and music will be bringing creatures of the night to a nature reserve this weekend.

Mr Fox and his troupe of dancers will perform with burning torches at the RSPB Old Moor reserve in Manvers on Saturday.

Mr Fox will dance at 7.30pm, just as the sun starts to set, using Old Moor’s 18th century courtyard as a backdrop.

Craig Hartley, visitor operations manager at RSPB Old Moor, said: “We are honoured and privileged to welcome Mr Fox and his dancers to the reserve once more.

“At this time of year, our summer late night opening ends and the event signifies the change in the season; a time when the days get shorter, late night opening ends and the reserve once more becomes the domain of the nocturnal animals living here.

“We can’t wait to welcome Mr Fox again. It is an incredibly special night for everyone with the courtyard lit up with the glow of flames and reverberating to the sound of the drums.”

Tickets for the performance cost £6 for adults and £5 for RSPB members and children. To book tickets, call the visitor centre on 01226 751593 or email
