Arcadia's Alchemist Playground is becoming a firm family favourite. By day, it's a hive of activity where kids and teens play, create and build. The Woodland Tribe will be on hand to help children construct a playground out of recycled military materials.

When it's finished, they will play and party on it for hours. Not only that, popular welding workshops will be back and catering for all ages. There will be new structures, swings and a whole lot more.
By night, the iconic Afterburner fires up. Expect flares, flames and cutting-edge, heart-in-your-mouth performances. Plus, the Lord of Lightning will return – shooting multi-million-volt bolts of electricity from his body, a spectacle like no other.
Built from a Rolls Royce jet engine called an Afterburner, the stage is surrounded by a circle of metal trees and flames. The dancefloor is designed with the DJ in the middle, so you can party with beaming faces all around you.
The food and music festival promises feasts, cooking demonstrations, masterclasses and an exciting selection of street food. The majority of which will have been produced using regenerative farming methods. Catering for all tastes and budgets, expect added theatre with the cooking over fire demonstrations along with plenty of sampling.
The festival doesn't stop at fun, feasting and frolicking around the meadows in lycra. Plenty of brain food is on offer too – educational talks and demonstrations will be themed on regenerative farming. The event takes place on an organic, regenerative farm and so looking after the land and soil is part of its DNA.
Tours of the neighbouring Community Farm will give festival goers an experience of eating food from the fields in front of them whilst learning how its produced. This positive farming approach – helps to reverse the soil damage that conventional chemical production has done. Regeneratively-farmed food not only tastes amazing but helps to combat climate change and increases biodiversity and wildlife.
And if all that food and music wasn't enough, there is a side-splitting comedy line up still to be announced. Ideal for those looking to laugh til it hurts. The festival is perfect for first-time festival goers and families of all ages. Plus, it is only 9 miles from Bristol and Bath making it really accessible for the weekend.
More information will be here when available.
