It's the 'Year Of The Red Kite' at Wood this year, their animal of focus, they have a special animal every year – they join the previously-honoured bees and badgers. Red kites, medium-sized scavenging birds of prey, were reintroduced to the Chilterns area and can now regularly be seen soaring above the festival site.
The full list of workshops, activities and talks, which run all day Saturday & Sunday will be announced soon.
This is the festival’s 8th year, initially created to be one of the ‘greenest’ festivals celebrating music and nature, and one of Britain’s greenest events, Wood is powered completely on renewable energy. The stage made of handcrafted oak, has a cheery thatch of flowers growing on its roof.
