Our annual Midsummer celebration

It's not quite Midsummer's Day but it is Father's Day at least, so you can treat dad to one of our special Daddy burgers and a pint (in the Lakeside Cafe) and browse stalls selling a selection of handmade crafts and gifts, from wood carving, to candles, to beautiful decorations for your garden! 

With kids' crafts, face painting, games and music there's something to occupy all ages. Free entry - parking charges apply. Friends of the Forest get free parking all year round* at the Forest Centre - click here for more information
