This free event starts at 10:30am at the New Forest Centre and will be bursting with children’s activities, guided walks around Lyndhurst and the Open Forest, tours of the historic Verderers’ Court which has been in place since the 13 century, games and an opportunity to have a picnic in the gardens of the historic Queen’s House.
Music and entertainment will be provided by ‘Junk’ who featured in last year’s Britain’s Got Talent. They will be providing music from recycled materials and making sure that everyone gets involved!
Jim Mitchell, Interpretation Officer for the New Forest National Park, said: ‘This is a great day for everyone to come along to. It offers a taster of what the New Forest has to offer and gives people an insight into the Forest’s ancient traditions and unique way of life.
