Forget festival hedonism: the WhaleFest event wants to celebrate the public’s enthusiasm for whales and dolphins.

WhaleFest 2011 kicks off in Hove, near Brighton, this coming November. It’s destined to be the first and largest event of its kind in Europe.

The festival, which launches with a star-studded VIP evening on Friday 4th November, will be opened to the public the following morning. Each day, visitors can dive in to a packed programme of unique events.

They can go eye to eye with a life-sized Blue Whale, step inside a whale’s stomach, or take a ‘virtual’ dolphin watching trip. On hand to inspire one and all will be the world’s whale and dolphin experts and wildlife celebrities.

WhaleFest is organised by Planet Whale, the world’s largest online search engine for whale and dolphin watching trips. Its vision is to provide whale and dolphin conservation organisations and sustainable whale watching businesses with a free platform to promote their work to the widest possible audience.

WhaleFest will open for the weekend of 5th and 6th November 2011 at the Hove Centre in Brighton, UK. Adult early bird tickets start from just six pounds, plus a small booking fee.

You can get further information on WhaleFest from the website or by calling Planet Whale on +44 (0)1273 355011.
