Active Activities Festival Outdoors

Into the Trees: a nature inspired family festival September 2019

Missing from our lives more than anything is time spent outdoors in nature. Into The Trees takes families on a fascinating journey through one of the South East’s most unique landscapes. A rare chance to relax and actively explore our natural surroundings.

Into The Trees is a new type of family festival running from the 13th til the 15th of September at Pippingford Park. It places the focus on relaxation and new experiences in harmony with nature.

Pippingford Park is an enchanting protected ancient woodland in the heart of the Ashdown Forest and Into The Trees brings you together with experts and activities from the outdoors world to inspire guests of all ages. A chance for families to explore a host of woodland based arts, sport and environmental activities from mountain boarding to making mud pies, kayaking to tree climbing, there is something for everyone.

The So Sussex formula of adventure, discovery and inspiration continues to encourage even more generations to spend time outdoors and discover the wonder of nature. Weekend camping and glamping tickets plus day tickets from £5 on sale here.

Into The Trees is the sister event of Elderflower Fields family festival- a small, independent event created in 2012 by a team of friends under the So Sussex umbrella. Both events are set within stunning private woodland of Pippingford Park in the Ashdown Forest. So Sussex offers people a range of enjoyable, educational and fun outdoor experiences in the great outdoors to develop their understanding and appreciation of the local environment. Working in partnership with like-minded organisations and a range of wonderfully talented, enthusiastic and professional individuals, the team deliver amazing outdoor experiences including the successful Schools Without Walls programme.

Elderflower Fields and Into The Trees are the first two So Sussex festivals encouraging kids and their families to spend more time outdoors. In 2020 the So Sussex calendar grows with a chance for families in The Midlands to experience the Elderflower Fields magic.
