The National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire is offering a range of group walks, talks and tours in 2019.

The ‘Days out with a Difference’ are intended to enhance group visits, along with group discounts into both its permanent and temporary exhibitions.

The National Memorial Arboretum (NMA) runs over 200 events a year, many of which are suitable for group visits, including the Armed Forces Weekend, the Vintage Fair, the Autumn Festival and Carols by Candlelight. Information on these events will be published online in due course. 

Faye Brant, group sales and booking coordinator for National Museum Arboretum, said: “2019 looks set to be another exciting year and we look forward to welcoming many more groups to the Arboretum to explore the site and engage in the events and activities on offer.”
