Try your hand at some bushcraft

22nd and 23rd June

Bushcraft Weekend

Join us for a special weekend where you can learn all about bushcraft, try your hand at activities and watch demonstrations. There will also be the opportunity to explore areas of the site which are not usually open to the public.

  • Have a go at shelter building in our woodland area
  • See if you can find all the items in our scavenger hunt
  • Try making your own natural cordage
  • Learn about cooking over a fire
  • Learn historic fire lighting techniques
  • Explore the site using our orienteering map – Denham Air Cadets will be on-hand to give you a helping hand.

Come and attend a ‘Wild Larder’ tour with Kev Palmer who has been working as a bushcraft instructor for 18 years. He’ll show you which of the wild plants, found in the Museum’s woodland, can be used for food and remedies. Kev has been fortunate enough to have worked in a range of different countries and environments, training Bushcraft leaders, see his website for more details.

Please note that all activities are subject to change and weather.
