19th - 21st May 2017
Location: Braziers Park, OX10 6AN
The perfect festival to kick start the season – mellow WOOD packs a significant punch with fascinating talks, brilliant workshops and a superb atmosphere for kids.
Tiny, intimate, folky, chilled and incredibly friendly festival with lots of hands-on workshops for all the family.
Wood say: “Our mission is to build community and connection, celebrate creativity and craft, and become aware of our place in nature. We aim to create a safe place where children (and adults) can be free to explore;
We aim to run our event on 100% renewable energy, and to recycle and reuse our waste products where possible.
Apart from dancing barefoot in the grass or just chilling out to some fantastic bands, there’s lots for kids of all ages in the fantastic Kid’s Tent run by the incredibly lovely Megan. There’s a full programme of workshops and activities, from Baby Yoga to Storytime, Den Building to Costume Making…
Children are also welcome to join in the more general workshops but will probably need some assistance from a grown-up.
Site and Facilities
Set in the fields in the beautiful surroundings of the Braziers Park community. It is pretty much all longish grass so opt for a 3-wheeler if taking a buggy – or better still use a sling or carrier.
Great compost loos – so much nicer to look out over the woodlands than use a smelly cramped portable plastic toilet unit!
Parking is in the field next door, so you will have a bit of a walk to reach the camping area, but nothing like the larger festivals.
