Join us for a celebration of the winter solstice, which marks the shortest day of the year when the hours of daylight are at their least. It is also the start of the increase in the hours of daylight, until the summer solstice.

Go on a magical woodland walk, meeting characters along the way who will weave you a story and sing songs as they lead you up to the fort. Finish your journey in the roundhouse by the crackling fire listening to tales and making decorations for the birth of the sun king. Finish off with hot chocolate and marshmallows in the café when you return from your adventure!
