 Holiday Workshops  

The next holiday workshops will be run during the Easter Holiday between 25th March and 5th April.

The children's spring workshops will be run between 10 am and 1 pm, with a break for lunch.  The cost of each session will be at a reduced rate of £22 per child.  Children need to be between 6 and 16 years old to attend.

During marshmallow cooking we will also have vegetarian and vegan alternatives.

Nut allergies

Due to the increase of young people being allergic to nuts and products containing nuts, we kindly request that parents, guardians and carers ensure that children attending holiday workshops do not bring nuts or nut based products.

Please ensure that if your child has a severe allergic reaction to nuts, we are made aware on booking, and that they bring their EPIPEN and any related medicine with them.

We do not provide food, except for marsh mallows and pizzas on certain workshops and therefore cannot guarantee that the site will be free of nut traces.

We have moved to an on-line booking system, and you will receive an e-mail for each booking made to confirm the booking.  The e-mail will also contain a link to your system calendar; should you wish to use it. 

The bookings page shows how many places are left for each workshop.

If the workshops are fully booked, they no longer appear on the booking page.

Please try and arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. in order that the workshops can start on time. On arrival, please park in the car park and walk up the track to our new check in booth.

Please note that for health and safety reasons, attendees must under no circumstances bring their own tools or knives to use at the Cotswold Forest School. If they are found, they will be confiscated immediately and returned to their parents.

Expect the children to get very muddy if it has been raining and either bring a change of cloths or a bin bag to put them in for the journey home! In the summer there are nettles and mosquitoes, and so it is advisable for them to wear long trousers and or insect repellent.
