Worcester Festival – Diglis Fish Pass drop-in with a showing of the ‘Unlocking the Severn’ Project Documentary – Saturday 26th August 10:00am to 12:00pm
As part of the Worcester festival, we are welcoming visitors to take a visit to the NEW Diglis fish pass and underwater viewing gallery in Worcester. You will have the chance to descend down beneath the surface of the river into our unique underwater viewing gallery and you may be lucky to spot some wild fish swimming through the pass! We will also show the 15-minute ‘Unlocking the Severn’ project documentary, which is presented by Monty Halls.
You do not need to book for this drop-in session.
LAST ADMISSION 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE END OF THE SESSION.
We can only have 18 people in the viewing gallery at a time. If we are busy we might have to:
- ask you to wait until there is a space
- limit the time that you spend in the viewing gallery
- issue a timeslot for you
Our visits are FREE and open to all, but as a charity, we welcome donations.
This session is at the FISH PASS, not at Diglis Island.
- On-road parking can be found along Bromwich Road (then walk along Kingfisher Path) or Weir Lane.
- There are no toilet facilities at the fish pass. The nearest public toilets are located in Cripplegate Park, a 15-minute walk along the river path towards Worcester.
- The viewing gallery is accessible via a flight of 36 steps. If accessibility is a consideration for you, please see our Accessibility Statement HERE.
- Children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
- Only service dogs are allowed into the viewing gallery.
