Festive Fishes Calendar

Who doesn’t love opening a new door on their advent calendar every morning in December? And at Unlocking the Severn we especially love unlocking and opening things!

So, to help you get in the festive #fishmas spirit, everyday 1 – 25 December we invite you to open a door onto a new view through our fish window. This way, we can use 25 days of festive fishes to celebrate the amazing fish of the Severn that have used our fish pass in its first year, via sharing a new clip form our Diglis Fish Pass window each day!

Once you’ve watched the short video clip, answer the fish-themed quiz question for your chance to be entered into a free prize draw to win an exclusive VIP tour of our Diglis Fish Pass – for you and up to 14 of your friends and family!

Visit the calendar every day in December to open a new door: Festive Fishes Calendar
