Early camping

Deer Shed Festival may be having limited camping on the Friday night, by arrangement possibly, for those that are travelling a longer distance.


This is very much a family friendly festival, with kids events an integral part of the day's programme with many of the artists performing and running workshops that the whole family can enjoy.


On the arts side there'll be some amazing creations evolving throughout the day; starting with a blank canvas (or chunk of wood, sheet of metal, piece of cloth) the aim is to get even the most artistically reluctant to have a go and make lasting reminders of the day.
