Voice for Leith Hill Family Day

Leith Hill dayIf you’re free on Saturday 13 August, come along to Leith Hill Place where local artists are holding a special event to raise awareness against the planned oil drilling.

Enjoy live music, ecology talks and children’s activities while exploring the childhood home of composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Teas, coffees, cakes and scones will be available for a donation inside the house – or bring your own picnic to enjoy in the beautiful surroundings.

Leith Hill Place now belongs to the National Trust, which opposes the drilling and supports the picnic and ongoing art exhibition at Leith Hill Place.

The National Trust entry fee for non-members is £5 per adult and £2.50 per child – cash only.

It’s 400m walk from Leith Hill Rhododendron Wood car park RH5 6LU. For accessibility advice please see website:
