 We have curated a diverse range of engaging activities for all participants to enjoy, and we believe there is something for everyone to relish. There will be ample opportunities for everyone to connect with nature and each other in a meaningful and inclusive way. 

 

For those interested in spending a night in Gisburn Forest, we are offering the opportunity, for a nominal fee, to camp with us or bring a motorhome on the evening on the 25th June. Details of the cost for this can be found on the booking form, which is included for your convenience. 




 

On the evening of the 25th June, we invite you to join us for casual conversations, music, and a campfire under the stars. Guided evening walks, including a bat walk, will also be available for those interested in exploring the forest after dark. 

Additionally, in the evening, there will be a mobile catering van onsite, offering a delectable array of street food for you to enjoy.
