Celebrating Our Forest

Celebrate our Forest with our vibrant musical and literary traditions, to tell the story of our Forest, our villages and our people in books, poetry, art and music.

Celebrate good times!

These eight projects will embrace our creativity and rich cultural heritage of literature, music and art. The projects will encourage participation from the wider community, and generate a feeling of community spirit. The ‘celebrations’ will also help to tell the stories of the Forest as they are uncovered and revealed.

Get involved:

  • Learn to play a brass instrument or participate in a choir and perform at Scarr Bandstand
  • Research or write a review about your favourite local author
  • Learn traditional skills to grow food in your own back garden
  • Volunteer to help clean up the forest by taking part in litter picking days
  • Work with the elderly in care homes to help them tell stories about the history and heritage of the Forest
  • Join in with community events and celebrate our Forest’s heritage
“These projects will enable many people to have the opportunity to celebrate our heritage and to engage with our vibrant musical traditions or get involved with literature or poetry .”
