Festival of Wildlife 2017

The Festival of Wildlife will return on the weekend of 27/28 July 2019

The 2019 Festival of Wildlife, in association with Herts Natural History Society and in partnership with Tarmac, takes place in the beautiful surroundings of Panshanger Park, near Hertford. 

The free family festival celebrates the rich diversity of wildlife in Hertfordshire and Middlesex and features walks, talks, family activities and conservation demonstrations. We will be joined on the weekend by local conservation groups, food producers, artists and craftsmen - there's plenty to see and do!

Finding Panshanger Park

The entrance to the Festival of Widlife is via the Thieves Lane car park located just off the A414 near Hertford. The nearest postcode is SG14 2WN. Please note that the entrance to the car park is on your left immediately after turning off the A414 at the roundabout onto Thieves Lane. Look out for the yellow festival signs. There is plenty of parking on site and the Festival is a short walk from the car park.
