Each Year Friends of Abbey Fields arrange a number of events which are open to members of Friends of Abbey Fields as well as the residents of Kenilworth. These events help to bring a focus on some of the important and less well known Natural History aspects of Abbey Fields: Birds, Bats, Trees and Meadows. Other events include some of the maintenance activities, which are so important in helping keep Abbey Fields a pleasant and interesting place for children and adults alike.
Where we can we will also provide information about events which, although not organised by Friends of Abbey Fields, are directly or indirectly associated with Abbey Fields.
Everyone is welcome to attend Friends of Abbey Fields events, free of charge.
If you would like to join FOAF details can be found here .
Events scheduled for 2021. (All subject to Covid rules and guidance on the date of the event)
We are hoping to add further events later – our notice board in Abbey Fields will display details, or check on our website.
