There is so much going on at Hengistbury Head - what will you discover?

Why not get the most from your visit to Hengistbury Head and join in with one or more of our amazing events? There really is something for everyone, from birdwatching for beginners, to creative writing and willow weaving for adults, storytelling for tots, pond-dipping and arty crafty events for slightly older children.

Many of our events are free or very low cost, and we think all are great value.
