Woodlands Festival is an intimate, independent family friendly festival set in secluded fields surrounded by woodland; somewhere you feel you can truly relax & unwind, meet new people or reconnect with old friends... & where kids can be kids again! Woodlands Festival has something for all ages & we look forward to sharing it with you...
We've listened to feedback & have been building on all that was loved at Woodlands Festival 2017! We are continually searching for & signing up activities & entertainment for both young & old to fill your festival weekend! For the kids there will be a range of arts & craft, along with woodland activities including treasure hunts, storytelling & bush craft adventures, as well as the Fabularium Forest Disco. Face painting & fancy dress play a big part in the festival experience for the little ones & grown-ups alike! So bring your own or look out for our roaming traders; we want everyone to get into the Woodland’s spirit!
The weekend will be jam-packed full of independent, talented artists. Some of who were with us in 2017 & some incredible new additions. We’re providing a platform for the unsigned to play alongside seasoned professionals, with both plugged & unplugged performances throughout the weekend.
And when the kids’ entertainment wraps up & they’re all tucked away in their sleeping bags, the DJs take over at the Woodlands Silent Disco, so the grown-ups can dance the night away under the stars... Or if you prefer, you can rug up in front of the giant screen at the outdoor cinema, with vintage style pick n mix, hot chocolate or a cocktail...
For those staying the weekend at Woodlands Festival, when you’re ready to call it a night it will only be a short walk back to your cosy camping or glamping festival home.
And when you wake up, there will be Yoga in the morning sunshine to start the day...
FOOD & DRINK
We’ve hand-picked a diverse selection of traders; serving up delicious, locally sourced & free range ingredients where possible.

And to accompany this will be an impressive selection of locally grown & bottled ciders, along with an array of wines, beer, juices & woodland inspired cocktails.
