Gazebos are starting to go up at Heartwood, ready for tomorrow’s Summer Festival (Saturday 7th July, 11am-4pm). Why not come along to help Heartwood Forest celebrate its 10th birthday?

Entry on the day has been reduced to £5 (with under 12’s going free) due to the cancellation of the Dog Show.

There is still plenty going on, though! Have a look at the website for further details.

A decision has been made to cancel the Dog Show, Hay Bale Run and Doggy Dash at the Heartwood Festival on Saturday (7th July 2018). This is due to the hot weather that we are currently experiencing.

Should you choose to bring your dog with you, shelter and water will be provided for dogs in order to help with the health and welfare of your animals.

All other activities will still be going ahead.
