Events at Smithills

Taking place throughout the year

The Woodland Trust has a whole host of events taking place throughout the year at the Smithills Estate in Bolton - and there is something for everyone!

This is the first year of our HLF (Heritage Lottery Fund) project which means lots of events and activities for the whole family to take part in. It’s the perfect way to get out of the town and into an enormous landscape that sits right on your doorstep.

Our events are designed to provide the widest variety of activities to highlight the diversity of Smithills for all audiences.

Through the HLF project we aim to provide events of interest to members of the public, their families and our volunteers.

The project will cover the next five years, so if you think we could add another dynamic to our events, please email any suggestions to
