The Black Down and Hindhead Supporters Committee runs a programme of public events each year, which are offered free or at a reduced cost to our members.

We also support a number of other events organised by the local National Trust teams and local affiliated community groups. If you are considering hosting an event to support the National Trust, do get in touch. We will publish updates to all featured events as they become available.
