Events happen in AONBs throughout the year – see their individual webpages to find out what is happening near you. But once a year the AONB Family gathers together in celebration of our outstanding landscapes. We call it “Outstanding Week” and it is just that.
Outstanding Week is the AONB Family’s week (and a bit) long programme of events to help people enjoy and be inspired by the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). This year it takes place from Saturday 16th – Sunday 24th September.
AONBs are some of the most beautiful and cherished landscapes in Britain. They are vibrant landscapes which offer a wealth of opportunities for everyone to enjoy them.
Outstanding Week is an opportunity for you to get involved and get out into our outstanding landscapes to enjoy country shows, dark sky discovery nights, walking festivals, archaeology walks, wood fairs, foraging and local food festivals, wildlife walks, coastal and marine days, thatching courses, drystone walling competitions, charcoal making, bioblitz, inspiration through art and many, many other activities.
Join us throughout the country to discover why September is such an Outstanding month!
