Christmas is a few weeks away and places are getting ready for all things festive. As the excitement builds up, alongside some Christmas treats of our own, Dalby Forest would like to give people the chance to step away into the calming embrace of our forest.

Jemma crusher, Visitor Experience Manager at Dalby Forest said ‘We want to give people the chance to step away from the pressure of the festive period and give themselves some moments of calm.   Starting in November you can experience several activities to help you prepare for Christmas.  Wrap up warm, pull on your boots and make it a day for everyone to remember with a crisp winter walk in the woods, fresh forest air and a warming cup of hot chocolate!’

We have an excellent Exhibition – Lies A Calm Along The Deep – from 24 November – 1 December.  Artist Rachel Rimell showcases her deep personal connection to the wild, empty space of the sea as a place of solace and solitude through this immersive exhibition – www.forestryengland.uk/forest-event/events-dalby-forest/exhibition-lies-calm-along-the-deep

Grab a Christmas tree, let our specialist tree teams help you pick the perfect sustainable, grown in Britain, Christmas tree for your home and support Dalby Forest this Christmas. 

We will be selling both Spruce and Fir trees from 26 November right through until 18 December – www.forestryengland.uk/forest-event/events-dalby-forest/christmas-tree-sales

Enjoy a day creating your own artwork and a unique Christmas gift, in The Hare In The Moon art workshop on the 10th of December.  Inspired by moon-gazing hare folklore, local artist Suzie Devey will share her skills as a printmaker so you can learn the art of linocut.

Discover how to transfer an image to a block and use specialist tools to make your art, adding colour and beautiful impact with gold leaf finishing. You will create a collection of prints with handmade Japanese papers to keep or give as Christmas presents – www.forestryengland.uk/forest-event/events-dalby-forest/the-hare-the-moon-suzie-devey
