Upcoming Events

Here are the upcoming events to look forward to with Fascinating Fens, helping to promote the Fens for everyone:

  • Launch of Free adult colouring page to be downloaded from this website: detail tbc
  • 20th June 2020: #CelebrateTheFens day!!!! Fascinating Fens asked if the people of the Fens believed it to be a good idea to have a celebrate the fens day, we had an overwhelming response to say “Yes”. This date has been decided, after several great suggestions, as the longest day gives people longer in the day to admire the beauty of our fascinating fens. More details to be realised soon. If you would like to hold an event in the Fens to “Celebrate the Fens” please let us know.
