What’s On

To see what creative events are on in the Forest of Dean, please take a look at the Forest of Dean Creative Events Calendar.

Canopy strives to provide the public with a holistic overview of the creative arts in the Forest of Dean. Part of this mission is to enable creative organisations within the Forest to share and coordinate their activities. A shared calendar is being developed in order to prevent clashes and promote FoD creative events online. For the time being this is via a public Google calendar, however Canopy is considering new ways of providing this service.

If you are an arts organisation within the Forest of Dean, please contact us about your upcoming activities, or you can share your activities via our Facebook group.

Canopy also organises a variety of its own creative events in the Forest of Dean throughout the year. Below you can see our upcoming events. If you would like to see our past events click here.
