Online Events & Learning

We're very excited to bring you a host of online events for 2021!
We loved welcoming old friends and new audiences to our virtual events last year, so we'll be continuing an online programme for the rest of the year and beyond. We hope that this will be a great way for you to discover Bowland, even if - for whatever reason - you can't join us in person.
You'll find all the online event details below but don't forget to keep checking back as we'll be adding new ones as we finalise them!
(Please note that under 18s must be accompanied by an adult at all these events.)
We have also included a number of face to face events in this year's Festival Bowland programme.  These will take place after Easter at the earliest - and only if it's safe to do so. If you'd like to take a look at the full programme you can find it here https://www.forestofbowland.com/Festival-Bowland-Events Please note that we will be updating the programme throughout the year, to reflect the circumstances, so it will be important to keep checking back for the latest information.
THANKS TO ALL THE ORGANISERS FOR MAKING THIS YEAR'S EVENTS POSSIBLE.
