Join us for the annual Heartwood Summer Festival – our outdoor celebration of trees and woodland – a day of fun for all the family.

It’s back and bigger than ever. With all the traditional woodland crafts, bodging, willow weaving, woodland art, bird box and bug hotels making and storytelling. New for this year are foraging workshops.

The farm animals will be here, with the addition of horses that you can meet and greet. The steel drums will also be making a return, as well as Morris dancing, and much more.

Enter the “Great Heartwood Bake Off”. The three adult categories are:

  • Victoria Sponge
  • Strawberry Jam
  • Savoury Quiche

Also this year there is a children’s category – 12 decorated cup cakes

All cakes must be in the judging marquee for 12 noon – judging will begin at 12.20pm.

Bring your Teddy Bear for the picnic dressed as a character from history – judging will begin at 12.15pm

Refreshments will be available to buy.

Hope to see you there!
