The Festival of Food and Music celebrates the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee
Our popular Festival of Food and Music is back this summer, running from Fri 3 – Sun 5 June. This year we celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with live music from every decade of her reign. We have a variety of tribute acts, a host of family activities including willow weaving and free tours of the mansion house.
Bracknell Forest councils are also celebrating the Jubilee with an art competition and a 1950s summer party. Please see our website for more details.
Exciting new summer workshops
Our workshop programme gives you the chance to have fun whilst trying out a new skill and meeting new people. This summer, the creativity continues to shine throughout the holiday season with our brand new range of exciting workshops and activities. These include a new creative writing for wellbeing session, introduction to embroidery, etching classes and landscape painting in oils.
You can find more information here – jump months to July to find them.

We are currently planning a number of maintenance projects and are looking for professional painters, decorators, carpet layers and builders who could volunteer their time and expertise.
