The 2019  SUMMER PROGRAMME OF EVENTS & EXPERIENCES is an opportunity to celebrate 50 wonderful years and to invite ‘everyone’ to come and experience the magic of the Wilderness Centre for themselves.

The Centre is therefore planning an exhibition to celebrate 50 years of memories. They would like to invite anyone who ever stayed at WC to send in to them their photos, pictures, memories that remind them of their experience of the Wilderness Centre.

The exhibition will be open to the public on 2nd and 3rd August at their business evening and family fun day event.

The public are invited to get in touch about their ‘memories’ via Simon, the Head of Centre on
