"Missing from children's lives more than almost anything else is time in the woods. Watching my child and others, it seems to me that deep cover encourages deep play, that big trees, an understorey mazed by fallen trunks and shrubs which conceal dells and banks and holes and overhangs, draw children out of the known world and into others." - George Monbiot

 

“We often forget that WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.” - Andy Goldsworthy

 

"Time spent in nature is the most cost-effective and powerful way to counteract the burnout and sort of depression that we feel when we sit in front of a computer all day." - Richard Louv

– From the creators of Elderflower Fields Festival

Join us again on a journey Into The Trees in 2018 and discover the amazing world of trees, woods and forests. Open your eyes to the ways in which we can play, work, learn and explore amongst their leaves, branches and trunks.

For the first time in 2018, we are offering very limited weekend camping tickets. Enjoy the magical early autumnal colours in this stunning part of the Ashdown Forest, two nights camping under the stars, two full days access to the festival, plus wonderful evening entertainment for the family…
