Discover the Chilterns...

Our planning of events this year has been constantly revised and adjusted to reflect the Covid-19 controls and constraints in place. At this current time we are moving towards increased lifting of lockdown constraints and we are optimistic that circumstances will not become more challenging over the coming months. If they do however, we will of course remain totally compliant with all legislation and best practice standards.
