July Events at Corfe Castle

This month we have some interesting events happening around Corfe; from family adventures, guided walks, murder mystery, dog shows and live music!

In the Castle we have the ‘The Woodland Clan’ activity trail which starts the 5th July and runs right through the summer until September 1st. This looks like it’s going to be great fun for all the family.

‘The Woodland Clan’ activity trail invites families to join the Purbeck beat of “beak, bone, feather and song” and help save Purbeck’s wildlife from destruction by the “Bigfoots”. This spectacular trail explores the wisdom of the animals through sculptures, activities, quizzes, storytelling and prizes. Read More…
