Wild Britain is an important wildlife site near Bedford. We were commissioned to undertake a substantial upgrade of the visitor attraction and we completed the makeover and new attractions in February 2008.
Set in acres of wildflower meadows, Wild Britain provides an opportunity for visitors to get close to the local British wildlife and also tropical wildlife. We built a new audio-visual and puppet theatre, a new pre-show area, created an exterior interactive nature trail around one of the traditional hay meadows and built a large woodman’s hut full of tactile and graphic based interactives.
The nature trail follows the adventures of Urchin the hedgehog, and we created 14 individual fully realised 3D sculpted tableaux with Urchin and other creatures such as Fox, Squirrel, Rabbit, and Frog which he meets on his adventure around the trail. We also fitted out a bird and animal hide and installed a weather station.
