    Haven are proud official sponsors of the festival and we’re excited to be involved with a mascot competition, hosted by Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. Get your creative hat on and think of a fun name to call their Puffin Mascot… and you could win a free break at our Thornwick bay park for later this year*!

    Thousands of puffins have started to flock to the nooks and crannies of Flamborough Cliffs to raise their young, and the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is preparing to host the region’s very first Yorkshire Puffin Festival. Three puffin-packed days will celebrate these clowns of the sea and raise awareness of a puffin colony that is Yorkshire born and bred! Whether you’re up for an adventure or fancy a cuppa and a beach stroll, the Yorkshire Puffin Festival has something for you!
