How to book a Barn Owl Trust talk or group event

Barn Owl talks for adults: If you are interested in a Barn Owl Talk for your local group, please phone 01364 653026 for more information and to discuss possible dates.

The two standard Talks we give are ‘Restoring the Balance’ which is about Barn Owls, their decline and the work of the Trust, and ‘The Lennon Legacy Project’ which is about the creation of ‘Barn Owl Heaven’ (our 26-acre nature reserve) and the resulting biodiversity gains.

Most Talks are given in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset. The cost is a requested minimum donation and depends on the travel distance from our base at Ashburton. Please take a look at the diagram below to find the amount requested for a presentation in your area. We occasionally give talks further afield, including in mainland Europe (e.g. at the World Owl Conference).

Barn Owl talks for children: Costs for talks for school groups are at the above prices for one class of up to c.30 children and increase by £10 for every extra class. Bookings numbering over 60 children may require 2 sessions.

Guided walks in ‘Barn Owl Heaven’ with refreshments or Devon Cream Tea: We have a wonderful wooden Meeting Room at our base near Ashburton (in south Devon) from which we offer guided walks around our 26-acre nature reserve (the Lennon Legacy Project).
Guided walks for groups of between 10 and 20 are priced as follows:

  • A suggested donation of £8 per person for the walk with tea and biscuits to follow, or
  • £10 per person for the walk with a Devon Cream Tea.
    • Other refreshment options are available – please contact us for details.
  • We offer substantial cost-reductions for Friends of the Barn Owl Trust – please contact us for details.

We can also offer a Barn Owl talk in our Meeting Room before a guided walk – or instead, if the weather is unsuitable (with prior arrangement). Please phone us on 01364 653026 to discuss further details.

Bespoke events: We are happy to create specialist talks or unique events, tailored to your group, business or organisation, in a beautiful rural environment, so please contact us to discuss the possibilities.

All donations from our talks and events help the conservation of wild Barn Owls – Thank you.
