Activities & Events

Previously, a rich variety of activities were held at Bracken Hall. Now that the Centre is open again, FoBHCC, Baildon Town Council and other providers prepare and run a range of activities for schools, groups and individuals.


PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL GUIDED WALK LENGTHS ARE ESTIMATED NOT COMPUTED AND MAY BE SLIGHTLY LONGER OR SHORTER THAN STATED.

We already have ideas of our own for activities, but we'd like your opinion and suggestions too! Please feel free to use the details on the Contact page to send us your ideas. We may incorporate them into our programme, or you could even host them yourselves! See the Bracktivities! page for more details.

PLEASE NOTE, THE TABLE BELOW SHOWS EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES FOR 2018 ONLY!


Some events are not hosted by FoBHCC or BH but may still be of interest. For more event details, scroll down below the activity grid.
