Introducing ‘Wildings’ at Cornbury House Horse Trials. An action-packed dedicated space for kids and families to get involved with a range of FREE interactive activities over Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September 2023. 

Taking inspiration from the nearby Wychwood Forest, the main centrepiece will be the Cornbury Wishing Tree, which is woven from willow by Willow Pool. Children will be learning about and making leaves to decorate it throughout the weekend based on the trees found in the forest along with items found on the woodland floor. 

As part of the Willow Pool programme of activities, children and parents will also be able to take part in their willow weaving workshops and for those wanting to get their hands dirty, we’ve got it covered with some clay animal making (washing facilities provided). 

Finally, don’t miss the Junk Trunk, one mighty colourful and sustainable craft workshop. Whether it’s creating your own fancy headwear, making jewellery, wands or flags, there is something to suit all ages and of course there will be a nod to Cornbury House Horse Trials with some horsey headwear!  

A dedicated team will be on hand to help with those imaginative creations and even better, all the activities are Free to enjoy. 

The full list of kids activities as follows: 

  • Willow weaving
  • Leaf making to decorate the Cornbury Wishing Tree
  • Clay animal making 
  • Junk Trunk craft workshop 

Please note the Wildwood Kids Zone will operate across the weekend of 9-10 September only. Kids 12 and Under are Free to attend Cornbury House Horse Trials which runs from 6-10 September.
