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!

If you fancy a day out somewhere completely different to Heartwood Forest, why not visit Tring Park for the Family Festival? Tring Park is just behind the Natural History Museum in Tring, and shares a car park with the museum. It’s a stunning site, managed by the Woodland Trust, with open, rolling grassland (with grazing cows) and beautiful woodland walks too.
