Family events

We run a range of events for families throughout the year. There is often a nature/eco theme to our events.

We have specific events for age groups, as well as activities the whole family can join in such as our Scarecrow Trail. Read on…

We have events running each month. Some of our events can be booked in advance, others are ‘drop in’ sessions – please check the events page for detail. There are always discounts for members to all our paid events.
