About Ferret Mischief

Festival of Museums event Sunday 20th May

During this day-long event, members of the Scottish Ferret Club will introduce visitors to the playful ferret and their love of small dark spaces. There will be chance to meet ferrets of all shapes and sizes, and wonder as they race along pipes and squeeze through the tightest of spaces. You’ll discover ferrets in some very surprising places. There will be ferret talks and ferret stories, and opportunity to make you own ferret toy to hide beneath your jumper.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Ferret Mischief are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
