Festive Forest!


Young People’s Forest Mead / The Woodland Trust 2022


The Brief

We first came across the Young People’s Forest when we supported their community tree-planting days in 2019 and they’ve just grown from strength to strength. We were contacted by their Youth Forum who had big ideas for their events programme – could we help them create their first Winter after-dark event planned for Christmas 2022


What We Did

First we undertook a site visit to see how the site has grown since 2019 and were amazed by the new places to be to enjoy nature and the woodland paths amongst the new planting. A promenade adventure would show off all this work but it needed to be flexible enough to fit in with the overall event. We adapted our Wassailing Adventure – usually experienced by daylight – so it could be experienced as an after dark adventure trail with character interactions at key points on the trail.


The Result

The event sold out quickly and received fabulous feedback – crucially attracting new audiences from the local community to engage with the site. The Youth Forum have big plans for the 2023 Christmas event..!
