The Essential Guide to a Batty Halloween

Halloween is coming and so we are seeing bats more and more despite them being less active at this time of year! This Halloween, we want to celebrate bats as the amazing and magical mammals that they are. Download our FREE Halloween pack here to learn more about bats and Halloween and for fun batty celebration ideas!

Make sure to join in with our Halloween great British #BatBake too! Get creative in the kitchen whilst learning about how important bats are in helping to grow a lot of the food we eat. Find more information here!

Last year we had some lovely gamers raising donations for bats through streamathons! See our Gaming for Bats page here for more information on Halloween streaming and email if you'd like to raise donations for bats through gaming.

You can also take up a challenge for bats this Halloween, weather it's a gaming streamaton, a spooky-movie marathon, or a walk, cycle or run for bats. Click here to see our page on taking up a challenge for bats to see how you can help raise funds for bats this Halloween.

This Halloween, we're aiming to raise £2000 for bat conservation! Make sure to check out our Halloween pack above for fun ideas of how you can help us raise funds. You can donate and encourage others to donate to bat conservation via our Just Giving page here.

We've put together a few activities that you can use in your Halloween celebrations to make it even easier for you. Whether you're having a quiet night in with a board game or looking for ideas on how to entertain your Halloween party guests, we have something for everyone!
