Festival Bowland Events

Bowland is full of people ready to share their love of this beautiful area, its landscape, wildlife and heritage, so why not join them on some of the events in the 2018 Festival Bowland programme?

Reward yourself with breakfast on the Dunsop Bridge dawn chorus walk, enjoy afternoon tea after feasting your eyes on Calder Vale’s bluebells or head off on a Ribble Valley Ramble then make a meal of it over in Sawley.

Get creative with stone carving and wire sculpting in Craven, turn your hand to fantastic felt flowers in Abbeystead or spruce up your map reading skills in the heart of Bleasdale.

Choose from a multitude of walks in lovely surroundings – from all day hikes to relaxing rambles and lots in between. Garstang Walking Festival in May has options galore!

This year we’ve introduced three themes which sit within the main programme. Springtime Wildlife, Meadow Magic and Bowland by Night each highlight a particular aspect of Bowland.  From lapwings, hares and butterflies in April, to wildflowers in July and night-time explorations in September, these events are a great way to discover this beautiful part of Lancashire and North Yorkshire


Easter Events

Every day throughout April, “Be a Garden Maker” at Coars Farm, Wigglesworth, will be hosting a children’s Easter Treasure Hunt! It’s the perfect way to run off a little bit of energy whilst you look around lovely spring flowers. Then relax in the tearoom with a treat! Accompanied children welcome.

Event is free but booking is essential. For more information please phone 01729840848, email hello@beagarden​maker.co.uk or see www.beagarde​nmaker.co.uk
