Welcome to Forest Explorers!

Forest Explorers run fun environmental education sessions, events and birthday parties in Delamere Forest, Cheshire. Delamere Forest is managed by the Forestry Commission and we work closely together to provide an enjoyable, safe forest experience for all.

With years of experience running sessions in the outdoors, Helena Broadbent and her enthusiastic team are able to deliver a range of programmes. From exploring the forest, hunting for minibeasts to bushcraft and guided walks and talks, Helena can reach a wide range of age groups.

Forest Explorers also provides unique forest birthday parties all year round. Children will not stop talking about it for ages! Especially the toasted marshmallows on the fire!

Events in the forest also run throughout the year. Family and adult events are extremely popular and booking is always essential. From Easter Hunts, Wildlife walks to minibeast hunts and den building there is something to suit every age.


We are opening up some weekday time slots for our Christmas grotto to childminding groups, home education groups, playgroups, small nurseries, groups of mums etc.

Our sessions last 1.5 hours and cost £10 per child, adults free. A session includes a visit to see Santa in his beautifully decorated grotto with forest gift, make a natural Christmas craft to take home and we’ll finish off warming up around the fire, toasting a marshmallow and drinking hot chocolate whilst singing Christmas songs.

Please note we are not taking individual bookings from the public, these times are available for small groups of 10 minimum booked by one leader only.

Limited dates and times available, minimum of 10 children per booking required and a maximum of 20 per timed slot.
