The Wild Wood Rumpus – A wondrous one day family festival

June 9, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 9:30 pm

Who wants to come on a wildwood rumpus? Who wants to march through the woods, singing loud and happy, who wants to play the drums or toot a trumpet? Who wants to sing, who wants to dance, who wants to wear a feather head-dress, a pirate suit, a tutu? Who wants ribbons in their hair, and bells on their toes, to paint their face with neon stripes, and follow the fairy lights – and maybe find a fairy or two?  Who wants to make crazy art from found things and daisy strings? Who wants to build a fire or a paint a totem pole? Who wants to run wild for the day …..and just play?

Run wild in our magical woodland, discover enchanting activities and performances around every corner. Find art installations, story tellers, woodland crafts, children’s theatre, plus fantastic food from local street food vendors, bars, and live music to stomp and dance to. Let’s all become wild things for the day!
