Mead Fest Report

Now that the (paint) dust has settled and plans are building for next year, we wanted to share some of the highlights of Mead Fest ‘A breath of fresh air’ with you all.

Members of the Young People’s Forest Youth Forum planned and delivered their first event in September that was aimed at engaging young people and the local community, bringing them to explore the site.

More than 460 people attended the free event and took part in rock climbing, archery, yoga, planting the first 20 trees of our Orchard of Hope, enjoyed the falconry display and live music by Little Chix, Kieran as Ed Sheeran and Kirby Frost (from The Voice 2018). More than 170 people took part in the Colour Run too. This was a great way to get people exploring the site, which has been noticeably busier at weekends since the event.

Massive thanks again from all the team to everyone that helped to make the day a success.
