What is happening at Brocks Hill Country Park and Centre

This page gives links to our programme of events and activities for children and adults. There is information about our seasonal activities, things to do for free, and a link to our current newsletter and adult discovery sessions listings.

Brocks Hill Garden Party

Wooden whistle making and pole lathe turning were just two of the traditional crafts on offer at the annual Garden Party in June. See our Facebook page for more images from the day.

There are old favourites such as Pond Dipping and visits from Leicester Hedgehog Rescue but also new Pottery Painting sessions and two performances of "The Smartest Giant in town" in the outside amphitheatre.

Adult visitors are not forgotten with a Butterfly Walk and a talk about local archaeology.

Brocks Hill Country Park and Centre is the perfect place for all ages to bring learning to life connecting wildlife and people. It offers leisure, conservation and outdoor learning experiences with enjoyment and inspiration at their heart. The Park and Centre will support people to discover more about wildlife and nature, to reconnect them with the outdoors and to encourage them to lead healthier and more sustainable lifestyles.

The Centre offers a popular, year round programme of learning opportunities taught by staff, outsourced tutors and by committed and knowledgeable volunteers. They will tantalise and inspire you with their knowledge in many areas of Natural History and we hope this will encourage you to develop your own interests further.

Our school holiday activities offer fun learning activities for all ages through craft, trails, outdoor hands on experiences and much more. Throughout the year, there are lots of exciting opportunities to explore and discover the Country Park for free.

For a more structured learning programme, we currently offer a full education programme for schools. We also have a programme of talks, tours and discovery sessions for community groups which can be adapted to suit all ages and abilities.
