Uncover the great outdoors this September. We’ve got home-grown fun for all the family at Capstone Farm Country Park on Sunday 26 September 2021.

Wild About Capstone is the final event in our summer events calendar. It replaces the previous ‘Capstone Festival’ event which last took place in 2018. 

This new event is a celebration of:

  • being outdoors
  • enjoying the natural environment
  • promoting local rural crafts, arts, farming and local food and drink.

Timings and parking

Wild About Capstone takes place between 11am and 3pm. No booking required.

The Orchard car park, main car park and the overflow car park will all be open. If visitor numbers are high on the day, we will also open 7 Acre Field as a second overflow car park.

Location

The event will be held at the southern end of Capstone at the Orchard (next to Orchard car park).

For families parking at the main or overflow car parks, an activity trail will run from these locations up to the event site.
