Two weeks today

Henry at The Palace - Copy

Two weeks today is Hen Harrier Eve when over 250 people (but the room can hold 300 so there are a few tickets available) will gather to celebrate the Hen Harrier ahead of the Hen Harrier Day rally in the Peak District the next morning (9 August, Goyt Valley).

  1. Sorry I can’t be there, sounds like a great evening. Good luck with a very a very important cause.

  2. Reserved the tickets;
    wearing the badges;
    ordered the books;
    thinking about the T-shirt;
    awaiting a weather forecast.
    See you there!

  3. Hi Mark, Hope you don’t mind this ask… please could the events of Hen Harrier Eve and Day be filmed and a dvd produced or Youtube film/s posted so that those who can’t get to the Peak District on the dates still get to see and hear and feel the passion behind the cause and feel part of it? Thank you for everything!

    1. Nigel – this may be happening. If it does, it will be on youtube probably on the Monday evening after the Sunday morning. Can’t promise though…
