One Enchanted Evening 27 September 2017

One enchanted evening at Oakfield Glen, Carrickfergus

Visitors are invited to come under the spell of the Woodland Trust’s Oakfield Glen on the evening of Friday 13 October, from 6 to 9pm.

The Trust and partner Mid and East Antrim Borough Council invite you to discover this enchanting Carrickfergus woodland by twilight.

Make your own lantern from recycled materials; then venture into the wood, sprinkled with fairy lights, for a magical evening. Toast marshmallows by the campfire, enjoy tales from renowned storyteller Liz Weir, and feast your eyes upon some magnificent owls. The birds are visiting thanks to Mantella, an environmental education service.

Michelle McCaughtry, the Woodland Trust’s people engagement officer, said: “Oakfield Glen is the most charming old woodland. It’s full of history and character, and just waiting to be explored.

“This event brings an unmissable opportunity for families to get outdoors at a beautiful time of the year, in the run–up to Halloween. Simply book online, wrap–up warm and prepare to be entertained.”

Oakfield Glen is a treasure trove. A Victorian stone bridge and old ice house offer a glimpse of days gone by. And today’s well–used paths connect Oakfield to the neighbouring council–owned Bashfordsland Wood.

The wood is also home to some unusual occupants. The Púca, which are fairy–like creatures, will be hiding in the treetops. According to folklore, the Púca are the most mischievous of all the fairies in Ireland. Thankfully, Oakfield’s crafty creations are sculptures, made from steel and with input from local primary schools.

Children must be accompanied by an adult. This event supports the work of the Woodland Trust. The cost is £5 per child; adults go free. Booking in advance is essential. For further details and to book a slot, visit www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/events or call 0330 333 3300.
