This event takes place in a stunningly tranquil, but basic, woodland venue. Our handcrafted Roundhouse offers shelter from the elements with rustic furniture around a crackling wood fire, whilst nearby you’ll find a compost loo and rainwater sink. Hot beverages will be provided on this otherwise non-catered evening, but please bring your own drinking water. As there is no running water or electricity at the arboretum this is a back to basics, almost off grid experience.
Tortworth Forest Centre is a Community Interest Company, working with limited resources. Sometimes we may have to cancel or postpone courses if they are less than 50% subscribed. We try our hardest to keep courses running wherever possible. You can help us by spreading the word to friends, family and colleagues. If an event is cancelled a full refund will be offered.
Planning your visit:
Due to the natural pathways the site is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues
With this in mind most pathways can be slippery and muddy at times. Please wear appropriate footwear
