What’s on

There are normally walks, talks and other events to enjoy throughout the year in Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark – though much was disrupted during 2020 and 2021.

You may also be interested to know that:

  • The Fforest Fawr Geopark Festival takes place in May/June each year with walks, talks and exhibitions. Though we had to cancel in 2020 and 2021, we hope to be able to hold some events in 2022.
  • The National Park’s events programme is packed with walks, talks and other events throughout the year, many of which take place within Fforest Fawr Geopark.
  • Geology-themed walks are included in the programme of the Crickhowell Walking Festival – though most of those walks take place within the east of the national park, some are within the Geopark. There is often also a shorter ‘Autumn Walking Weekend’ run by the organisers of the CWF.
  • On our southern doorstep, the Wales Valleys Walking Festival takes place each year and shares some common themes around geology, archaeology and industry.
  • The Brecon Beacons Park Society runs a year-round programme of events and groups such as the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales also offer a range of activities often centred around their reserves
  • The South Wales group of the Geologists’ Association occasionally holds meetings within the Geopark too.
  • The Welsh language natural history society, Cymdeithas Edward Llwyd runs events across Wales including a number in the vicinity of the Geopark.

Please note that the list above includes walks/events taking place in the Geopark but not being delivered by the National Park Authority. The National Park Authority is not responsible for the work of these other organisations so it is your responsibility to make sure that you are comfortable with the Health and Safety procedures before you participate in any of these.
