26th - 29th May 2017
Location: Ashdown Forest, Sussex
Elderflower Fields is a small, independent festival, created in 2012 by a small team of friends and set within the stunning private grounds and magical woodland of Pippingford Park in the Ashdown Forest – the perfect environment for kids and grown-ups to fully escape for the weekend.
Each year Elderflower Fields builds upon it’s winning formula of a festival designed especially for families. It’s an exciting and unique experience that opens children and their parents’ minds to new opportunities in sport, music, the arts, the environment in the great outdoors.
Throw in a fantastic selection of locally produced food & drink, a cocktail lounge in the woods, and a fairytale setting, nestled in the beautiful, wooded Sussex countryside and you have the perfect small festival. A delightful, stress free weekend of family camping all culminating on Sunday with the amazing Elderflower Fields picnic!
What’s on for kids?
Elderflower Fields is all about giving kids the chance to try new things & experience new activities. The festival will be centred around what children want to do, with really exciting sporting activities, urban woodland adventures and creative filming workshops, all of which will leave a long lasting impression in their minds…
The Green People spa offers various treatments during the weekend. Plus a woodfired hot tub and sauna is available.
Sports and Art camps can be prebooked so adults can take advantage of the onsite spa treatments or hot tubs. There is a selection of more adventurous activities aimed at older children while play & arts area for preschoolers and specific under 5s sports camp and dance sessions.
Camping and Facilities
The camping areas are tucked away from the main, noisy areas of the festival, surrounded by beautiful countryside so you can be assured a good night’s sleep. There’s loads of space so large groups are able to camp together in one area and there are communal fire pits around the site at night time.
When you arrive at Elderflower Fields there is a festival bus to transport your camping gear to and from the car park to the camping areas (such a bonus with kids) and there are even a few camping helpers around on Friday evening! Campervans and small caravans are welcome in the campervan area and the prebookable pitches can be used for tents if you wish to camp right next to your car – a great luxury at any festival.
There are plenty of toilets, heated showers, free drinking water access and washing up facilities in the camping area.
There are glamping options available via their website.
