Come along to our binocular and telescope demo weekend and take a closer look at the wildlife wonders at RSPB Newport Wetlands. You will have the opportunity to try out our fantastic range of binoculars and telescopes.

Our friendly team of staff and volunteers will be there to give you expert advice and help you choose the right product to suit your budget and requirements. What's even more fantastic is that the proceeds from sales contribute to the RSPB's ongoing conservation projects. We stock an extensive range including: RSPB, Viking, Swarovski, Leica and Zeiss.

If you have a specific product in mind please inquire at least 7 days prior to the event. If it is something we do not stock we will do our best to source the product and have it here for you to try.

We look forward to seeing you there!
