Hi, sadly the event has been cancelled. The Gruffalo will be appearing in some of our other woods across Central England instead. I will update here when I know where he will be and when. Thanks for your enquiry.

How come there has been zero info on your calendar about the concerts happening this weekend? Only through being turned away yesterday and actually calling today has the information been given.

B, 14/Jun/2014

Hi B, the events were added to the calendar way back in March. Once the event is over the info disappears. All the info needed for the concerts was linked from the main page to the main Forest Live pages. I will ensure all the info needed is added in good time next year.
