Glow Badbury

Glow Badbury is an exciting partnership project between Emerald Ant, National Trust Kingston Lacy and the Museum of East Dorset that celebrates the special Iron Age hillfort of Badbury Rings.

Funding for this project has come from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the National Trust and Dorset Council. Thank you to lottery players who have helped make this project possible.

In May children from 5 schools in East Dorset came to Badbury Rings to learn about its Iron and Bronze Age archaeology, as well as its special habitat on Cranborne Chase. Find out more about the school field visits and what the children discovered.

Over the following months children and the local community worked with 11 artists to interpret the site’s heritage. Their artworks will form an illuminated trail event on the Rings on 29th and 30th September, find out more about the Glow Badbury event.
