Wayfaring Update

Final Event: Sat 21st July - Fire Prevention Warning

Final event – Saturday 21st July 2018.


Due to the prolonged hot weather and the grounds at Basildon Park being exceptionally dry and at risk of fire, we are unable to have a fire with fireworks on Saturday night as previously described.


(Un)Fortunately, we can’t control nature, it will have its way and we will respond!


Access on Saturday night to Basildon Park will still be free. Come from 7pm onwards if you are having a picnic on the lawn; because of the hot weather and dry ground we ask that you do not bring a BBQ or anything with a flame, including cigarettes. Then at 8pm pack up your picnic in your backpack (or you can leave your picnic things with a steward) and gather at the house for 8.30pm.


The characters of Wayfaring will welcome you and take you on a dusk journey through the woods into the landscape of Basildon Park, discovering the Wayfaring installation.  Come together and get involved in a beautifully intimate evening and a very special moment in Basildon Park history.
