Members of Lighthouse Yarns Knitting Circle get ready for the 2017 Woollen Woods.

Each summer Diamond Jubilee Wood, Whitehead is transformed into a Woollen Wonderland. Hundreds of woolly creations, made by schools, knitting groups and individuals all over the country are installed in the wood and celebrated with a big family fun day on site.

The theme this year is The Very Hungry Caterpillar so come along on Saturday, June 24, from 1pm – 4pm. Other activities on site will include music, drum circles, arts and crafts, pond dipping, foraging workshops and much more. Woollen Woods Whitehead is a partnership project between Mid & East Antrim Council and Lighthouse Yarns Whitehead, supported by Voluntary Arts Ireland.
