The festival promises to transport and enrich visitors, from the youngest to the oldest, with a wide variety of events including games, dancefloors, sensory raves, and circus and clowning performances. In addition to traditional outdoor activities such as boating and wild swimming, festival-goers can participate in eco-friendly workshops to create their own headdresses, capes, and keepsake trinkets, and attend Forest Bathing sessions where they can mindfully connect with nature.
Wilderness is the perfect destination for children of all ages, with workshops from Exploring Nature that offer educational interactive sessions to spark their wonder and interest in the natural world. The Flying Seagull Project, 321 Let’s Have Fun, and Tootles + Nibs all provide interactive entertainment with theatre, music, comedy, and parties that engage young imaginations. For older children, Transmission Roundhouse is hosting The Hub, a home for innovative and groundbreaking audio-led content that champions the voices of young creatives.
Families can also experience the cabinet of Living Cinema’s Enchanted Cinema project, where they become the sound of an owl, a snail, or even a tree ghost, creating atmospheric scores for scenes from animated films. Meanwhile, the Great Outdoors offer opportunities for daily runs, forest bathing, wild swimming, foraging, and camping under the stars.
Mortimer Nannies, the popular “keepers of calm”, return to entertain and take care of children of all ages, while their parents unleash their wild sides. There is also a special teen and tween session catering to ages 10 and over, along with a creche in Boutique Camping, with private in-tent nannies available to pre-book.
Overall, Wilderness is the ideal destination for families looking to escape reality and experience an immersive and interactive festival that celebrates art, nature, and the joys of summer.
