Whale Festival for the whole family at Gram Clay Pit

Attention: Whale Festival 2020 has been cancelled due to covid-19.

Put on a VR headset and experience the whales right up close, go fossil hunting in the clay pit, cast your own whale bone and see if you can find your way around the Gram Sea by means of echolocation.

A packed programme includes activities for whale- and nature lovers of all ages.

This weekend is all about whales: from the extinct whales found at Gram Clay Pit to
the living habits, ways of finding food and the method of communication of the whales living
today.
