This year’s Heartwood Festival is on Saturday 7th July, between 11am and 4pm.

Why not come along to explore the Wildlife Zone and Wood Zone, join in with a yoga or meditation session and have a go at all the craft activities?

The dog show is always popular – could yours be the winner? How fast can your dog go down the bale run?

You can enter the Heartwood Bake-Off with your decorated cake and bring your teddy along to the Teddy Bear’s Picnic.

More details will follow soon, but in the meantime, make sure that you save the date!

Hot drinks are provided, but you are asked to bring your own lunch/snacks.

What to wear:  Gloves, rugged waterproof footwear, plenty of layers and waterproofs

If you would like to come along or would like further information, please email heartwood@woodlandtrust.org.uk for further details.

We are about to start the final season of tree planting at Heartwood Forest. By the end of March 2018, the last few trees will be in the ground.

Why not come along to one of the last two community planting sessions and play a part in the completion of this fantastic forest? The planting days are in November 2017 and March 2018. Hundreds of thousands of trees have been planted by volunteers, with just 40,000 left to go in this season.

There will be refreshments available to buy, but feel free to bring your own food/drinks.
