Events

The team run a multitude of events throughout the year and they are all featured on our website, under the ‘Events’ section.

Our events are a mixture of free and paid for events, depending on the type of activity. However, all prices of our events and activities are kept at the absolute minimum and we often secure external funding to help lower this cost.

The events run by the team take place in Buckinghamshire, Watford Borough and East Herts District as our current service delivery covers these areas. However, the team also provide logistical support to several other events in Hertfordshire and Berkshire through our partners.
