Join us for this very special anniversary

On Saturday 7th May join us for International Lugger Falcon Awareness Day at the park, here in Knutsford.

This year marks the 5 year anniversary of Project Lugger – Action in Conservation, a charitable organisation set up in May 2017 to help save the Lugger Falcon. In September 2020, thanks to Project Lugger – Lucie, the Lugger Falcon came to live at Gauntlet, to allow us to inform visitors to the park all about these magnificent birds and their declining numbers. On this special day we’ll tell you all about Lugger Falcons, and Lucie will be taking to the skies in one of our flying shows.

To help raise funds for the charity we will be holding a raffle at the park.

You can purchase tickets on the day at reception/cafe counter.


1st Prize: A One Hour Taster Experience – with Lucie
2nd Prize: A Gauntlet Birds of Prey Owl or Vulture mug
3rd Prize: A Gauntlet Birds of Prey baseball cap

All funds raised from the sale of raffle tickets will go to the Project Lugger – Action in Conservation (Registered Charity (no 1187341)), you can find out more about the organisation here.

This event is open to everyone – click here to purchase our ‘Daily Entry Tickets’ or on the day at the park.

• Doors open at 11am (last entry to the park 3pm)
• Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult
• Under 3’s go FREE

We look forward to seeing you!

In September 2020, we received our Project Lugger poster and Lucie the Lugger Falcon came to live at the park.

Back in January 2021, one of our falconers Jake made a video with Lucie, our beautiful Lugger Falcon.

In August 2021, Bob Dalton from Project Lugger paid us a visit, to see how Lucie was getting on in her new home.
