SpringFest here we come

Get ready to welcome ‘SpringFest’ on Saturday 4th May from 12-9pm at The Oaks! Featuring an array of family, and pup-friendly activities to celebrate all things local in the wonderful Highcliffe.

We will also be welcoming our beloved canine customers to join us for a group dog walk along the seafront at 11am, led by a member of our team and meeting back at The Oaks for a chance for your pets to be snapped at the doggy photo booth.

From 12-5pm, we will transform our beautiful beach huts and terrace into artisan market stalls showcasing local traders featuring Kate’s Crafty Corner, Redwood Creations, South West Wildlife Fundraising and others. You can also expect talks from local producers and live music from 12:30pm, including a performance from the wonderful Diamond Divas raising money for Macmillan Caring Locally.

See below for more details on the day…
