  1. Are you planning on doing a similar offer for Father’s Day? At the moment, there are no plans to offer a similar deal for Father’s Day. Father’s Day falls on 16 June 2019, the same day as our Forest Live concerts. This means that on that day there will be operational activity onsite that may impact on the visitor experience, such as moving vehicles, closed off parts of the Arboretum, increased traffic. We therefore do not wish to encourage additional visits to the Arboretum on this day.
