Learn how to make your own Christmas wreath at Sheffield Park

Get creative this Christmas

Don’t spend the festive season trudging up and down the high street. Come to one of our Christmas craft events and make something really special. For the foodies we’ll also be hosting culinary workshops where you can learn how to make anything from sweet treats to soft cheese. We've also got lots of events for the whole family.

A taster of forthcoming events

  • Sporting events

    Join us this season on one of our outdoor activity events. We've 'have a go' archery sessions, Night Run's, Nordic walking, or a monthly walk with man's best friend - and that's just for starters. You're guaranteed to find something to get you out and enjoying the countryside.

  • Talks and guided tours

    Join us for one of our talks or tours and learn something new from our experts. Join a guided walk and see how many red squirrels you can spot at Brownsea Island, or why not commemorate the centenary of the birth of Dylan Thomas at Bateman's? There's lots to tempt you with and bring you a bit closer to our stories and heritage.

  • First World War centenary

    Our places have many stories to share, so take some time out this year to explore our exhibitions and collections, take a guided walk or discover the war memorials we care for. Help us commemorate the lives of those who were on the battlefield and on the home front by sharing their stories with you. Why not join in the conversation on Twitter (#WW1) or at one of our events?
