Come along on September 30th and enjoy a day of activities to celebrate Autumn Colour.
See the inside of a working bee hive with Simon Robbins ‘The Bee Man’ After a summer with our own new bee hives we are ready to launch Evenley Wood Garden Honey. Collect your jar at the pavilion.
Pick up a basket and collect your own crab apples and follow our recipe to make crab apple & rosehip jelly.
Relax and enjoy a taste of the new autumn menu in the cafe.
Make a leaf crown.
Plant an acorn with our head gardener to nuture and return next autumn to be planted in the wood.
Pick up your autumn trail from the gate and follow the path for a wonderful woodland walk and see which leaves you can identify.
With torch in hand, you will venture on a spooky journey of ghosts, myths and legends. On Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th we will be extending our opening hours to 6:00pm. See the wood in a whole new light, following the pumpkins to see what might be hiding in the undergrowth!
For the less adventurous we have plenty of other things going on at the wood this spooky season. Little ones can take part in our pumpkin carving workshop and carve out their own creepy creations (£3 per pumpkin) along with facepainting from Raindrop On Roses on Friday & Sunday and Wizard School.
Or try your luck in our fancy dress competion. Post a photograph of yourself in the wood in fancy dress to www.facebook.com/evenleywoodgarden to be in with a chance of winning a season ticket for 2 adults and 2 children.
The competition is open to any age so parents, please feel free to join in!
And of course pop into the pavilion for some goulish goodies!
