The event is completely Family friendly, with activities and performances providing something for all ages, you can even bring well behaved dogs on leads with the necessary collection bags!
The children’s area offers forest school crafts, fancy dress parades, story telling and shadow puppet workshops, to list just a few activities.
The young songwriters stage, provides a platform for budding musicians under 18 and the open fronted tipi provides a chill out area for teens; and it’s just close enough to the communal camp fire and bar.
The Moth Bar will be serving cocktails, real coffee and snacks late into the night. The main bar serves a fine example of locally produced beers and ciders as well as wines and spirits.
And there’s a rumour that illusive chef Rolan Dack, of 'Ronnie Saunders Diner Union' will be providing all of the delicious food in our café.
With 2 gently amplified stages, an acoustic stage in the café and jamming lounges across the site you will be able to find and even learn music form a wide range of genres.
The market place is more of a ‘make and do’ than a buy and hoard experience, with all stalls offering a free craft activity for you (or the children to try) while you shop. You can have a go at stone carving, ceramics, circus skills and aerial workshops.
Wild camping throughout the meadow, with camper vans and caravans welcome in the adjoining camper van field, state of the art compost loos and a stand pipe with the added joy, this year, of the Stick and Stones Sauna, in a 1950’s army truck.
There is a slow flowing river surrounding the site, so please make sure you know where your children are at all times. No Swimming, as cows drink from and deposit in the river.
More information will be here when available.
