1) Visit Crowborough Community Festival at Goldsmiths Park from 11am on Monday May 1st. There are a whole range of activities planned celebrating Sir Conan Doyle and his dinosaur themed book The Lost World.2) Experience Camp Wilderness at Penshurst Place. Learn outdoor survival skills and bushcraft at a fun-packed demonstration on the Woodland Trail at Penshurst Place and Gardens over the Bank Holiday weekend. Experts from Team Wilderness will demonstrate shelter building, scavenging and a whole host of tips on how to survive living outside. This activity is best suited for children aged 7 and up. 3) Take a walk around Lake Wood in Uckfield. This hidden treasure offers a magical walk through rocks and around a beautiful Lake. Be wary of little ones as there is a lot of open water. I would also advise decent footwear. More details available here.
4) Visit Horam Manor Farm May Fair. You’re invited to dress as a woodland animal (optional!!? ) and explore their new woodland activity nature trail. There will also be children’s entertainment, stalls, crafts and a BBQ. Entry is free!
5) Take a walk across the Ashdown Forest and explore their free Visitor Centre. There will be a pop up cafe during the bank holiday weekend (Sat – Mon) which is open 11am – 4pm.
