Art by the River Buckler's Hard
10am - 4pm

The event also includes a range of buskers to include modern and contemporary music through to traditional folk-singing and Morris dancing.
All located on the banks of the picturesque Beaulieu River in the heart of the New Forest.

On the banks of the Beaulieu River, in the heart of the New Forest, you will find the peaceful haven of Buckler's Hard which remains untouched by the passage of time.
Once a thriving shipbuilding village where ships for Nelson's fleet at Trafalgar were built, now Buckler's Hard is a tranquil haven, perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Discover the history of the village in the Maritime Museum, take a step inside a historic shipwright's cottage, or simply amble down the high street to watch the boats sailing by on the Beaulieu River, where you can catch a river cruise from Easter to October.
