About

Saturday 15th June and Sunday 16th June | 2024 | 10am - 4pm
The Walled Garden, Thoresby Park
Free entry, £3 car parking all day

​This Summer, The Sherwood Forest Trust celebrates the 10-year anniversary of their Woodland Festival. With the past 9 festivals being held in Sherwood Forest, the project has expanded and moved to the beautiful Walled Garden at Thoresby Park for the big anniversary this year on 15th & 16th June.

The Sherwood Forest Trust Woodland Festival is focused on re-telling the story of the forest and how it has supported Nottinghamshire communities throughout the ages, linking their daily lives with its produce and products. It also looks to the future and the critical importance of trees and woodland for helping with climate change and biodiversity loss. The event is arguably more important now than ever before!

This is a wonderful family-friendly day out, where visitors can engage with the natural world, learn skills and crafts from our local traders, and learn about local fauna and flora. The Woodland Festival is a fantastic even to generate community spirit and foster a sense of local pride and place.
