Autumn Celebration 2024

September 21 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free – £22.00

Join us on 21st September as we celebrate the equinox and the arrival of Autumn to the arboretum.

There will be guided tours of the tree collection, craft activities, games and talks exploring the history of the Ducie family and their estate, beautiful music from a local choir, stalls from local makers and a chance to get your hands dirty as we plant new specimens. We’ll also be serving a warming vegetarian stew cooked over the Roundhouse fire, as well as tea, coffee and hot chocolate all day.

Become a Friend of Tortworth:

Support our ongoing conservation and community work with an annual pass. Friends of Tortworth can attend unlimited Visitor Days for a year whilst supporting our fundraising efforts. Every year we need to raise £100,000 to plant trees, train volunteers, pay staff, maintain tools and our minibus so that people without car access can attend our wellbeing groups. Attending events or becoming an annual pass holder helps support the ongoing conservation work at Tortworth. That means you’re investing in the wellbeing of others whilst doing something for you! We’ll call that a win win!  Find out more here.

Planning your visit:

  • Due to the natural pathways the site is not suitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility issues, and only suitable for off-road buggies
  • There is no running water or electricity here, we invite visitors to bring sufficient drinking water and a picnic. Hot drinks and a vegetarian stew or dahl will be available in the Roundhouse.
  • Well behaved dogs welcome on leads
  • Discounts available for groups of 10+. Email events@tortwortharboretum.org for more information
