Events and activities
A Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum membership provides free entry to this exquisite landscape. There’s always plenty going on so why not take a look at the latest events and activities this season to discover more about Westonbirt?
Our Wild Westonbirt programme is aimed at young adults aged 14 - 18. Leave the well trodden paths and explore the wilder side of the Arboretum. Activities include den building, fire lighting, star gazing, wildlife watching, night hikes, bushfire cookups and woodland crafts.
