This Conservation Week join us for Stories in the Beech Glade with Special guest Melanie Drewery!

During the year the Sanctuary holds a number of special events; each year we hold two open days, generally held in April and October. During the winter months, generally from June to September we offer glowworm tours which have proven to be extremely popular over the last two years. We also run a number of pop-up events throughout the year, so keep an eye on this page (and our Facebook page) for the latest information!
If you, or your organisation, are planning a ‘special event’ – get in touch to discuss holding your event in the Sanctuary. (The Sanctuary has previously hosted corporate events, weddings, remembrance services/gatherings (note, scattering of ashes in the Sanctuary is not permitted). Contact:
