Events Programme 2023

Many of our Space for Nature events are free to attend unless otherwise stated, because of this events often fill up quickly so if you reserve a place and are unable to make it closer to the time please let us know by emailing us at mdsfn.events@gmail.com or by texting 07818 426060 with your reservation name and event date. This helps us to enable other families to enjoy the countryside. If you book and then don't turn up without letting us know in advance, your future bookings may be at risk of being refused.

You will need to book a place for all children over 4 and adults attending. So if you are 2 children, 1 adult and 1 under 4 then you will need to book three places.   

Follow our symbols:  Green boot = Free family event. Leaf = Wild Bushcraft sessions. Hiking boots = Adult events

Please note:  All children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome to some events - please check event details.
