Organising your own event at Hamsterley Forest

Hamsterley Forest provides the perfect venue for a range of events. If you are interested in holding an event here you will need to apply first so that we can ensure your event doesn't clash with anything else happening in the forest, such as forest operations work. 

Once we know your needs we can advise you to make sure your event is a success. Please contact us no later than eight weeks before your proposed event.
