Our events

We have a lively programme of events all year round. Looking for something to do to keep the kids happy? Or perhaps you want to take in some of the scenery, or learn about our heritage? We have something for everyone.

In the winter months you can take in some of the darkest skies in the country as part of our Dark Skies Festival. At the other end of the year we celebrate all things cheese with our annual Cheese Festival. On top of that we run regular guided walks, and during the school holidays our drop in Go Wild! events are popular with all age groups.
