Live Local, Love Winkworth

On Sunday 3 September from 11am-4pm, we're throwing a grand woodland party for the community, known as Live Local, Love Winkworth. We've invited local craftspeople, charities, bands and dancers to transform the arboretum into a hubbub of activities and stalls for all ages. We're even waiving the entrance fee for the day, so everyone can enjoy the party atmosphere.
