Future Events In 2019

Due to the development work on the Hall and enabling site this year we are not planning our events too far ahead but we are expecting the following events to take place:

  • National Tree Week Open Day – Sunday 24th November from 11:00am


Please note that as the restoration work on the Hall is currently going on, we have restricted access to the Grounds and we are not always able to run our events as previously.  We regret that our woodland paths may not be suitable for disabled visitors in wheelchairs at this time. We also advise that in the winter months visitors should come in suitable footwear as some of the newly created paths may become muddy at times.
