Regular readers will know that Just So Festival is a highlight of our summer calendar and we’re looking forward to attending again this summer for the third year in a row. However this year we’ve added another festival to our summer and will be kicking off the summer season with the very first Timber Festival. Of course there is always a risk in attending an entirely new event but knowing that that Timber Festival is being organised by the team at Wild Rumpus – the very same people who organise Just So Festival, means I know that it’s going to be a winner!
Taking place on 6th / 7th / 8th July, in the heart of the National Forest, Derbyshire – Timber Festival is a family friendly weekend event whose ethos is
“to re-connect young minds and the young-at-heart with our natural surroundings, promoting curiosity, learning, courage, personal development, social skills and familial bonding within the context of wild landscapes.”
I’m sure you can imagine that I got really excited reading this and was happy to accept an invitation to attend! After our experiences at Woodsmoke last year, I’m keener than ever to keep on getting my children outdoors and into the freedom of the forest. Looking at the line up for Timber Festival I’m expecting a whole world of random in the vein of Just So but with a strong theme of sustainability and forest fun!
There’s so much to look forward to and I know that we will likely spend our weekend dipping in and out of things as we stumble across them however I’m keen to try out family yoga, you know Ben is going to spend as much time as possible up a tree and of course with campfire stories with Ian Douglas will be an absolute must!
