There are a number of annual events for which Danby Lodge is perfectly positioned. These include :
The annual Wyedean Forest Rally – which takes place in mid February every year. The rally cars pass by on the track in the forest below the house, so Danby Lodge is perfectly positioned to watch the cars as they pass by.
The Forest of Dean Half Marathon which takes place at the end of March and September every year.
Regular Orienteering events are also held – often in the woods near Danby Lodge.
The Forest Showcase Food and Drink Festival. Held in October 2014 at the Speech House.
The annual Forest of Dean Mountain Bike Enduro, held in September and the Wild Boar chase in May – a Mountain Bike challenge using Forest tracks and Bridleways with short sections of quiet roads in the Forest of Dean and Wye Valley.
