Timber Festival

3rd - 5th July 2020

Location: Feanedock, The National Forest, DE12 6DQ

Website: www.timberfestival.org.uk/

Timber Festival is an exciting event, brought to us by The National Forest Company and Wild Rumpus (the fabulous people who are responsible for Festival Kidz favourite Just So). Festival kidz had an amazing time at the festival in 2018. See our review here :/https://www.festivalkidz.com/reviews/timber-festival-2018-review/

Taking place in the beautiful National Forest, a 70 acre woodland site on the Leicestershire / Derbyshire border, Timber explores our relationship with the forest. In fact, the whole festival experience is intrinsically wrapped up in its environment.

Did you know that Timber actively encourage people to cycle to the festival from a range of nearby cities? They will even give you and your kit a lift home at the end of the weekend.

People are always asking us which festival is the best!

There’s no easy answer to this as everyone has their own favourites.

Festivals have such a broad reach these days. There really is something for everyone. Do you want luxury or basic facilities, indie or world music, laid-back or party central?

Timber Festival 2018 Review

Something small but beautiful happened in the National Forest, Staffordshire in July 2018. A brand new festival was born. Timber Festival is a celebration of nature, our relationship with the forest, a chance for children and adults to be free, to play, relax and be inspired.

The first thing that struck me about Timber Festival was how relaxed it was. No huge queues for the wristband exchange, a short walk from the camping area to the festival arena, friendly security. As I get older this is becoming increasingly important, they had hot showers with no queue and drumroll….some flushing toilets with sinks which were immaculately clean. Read more…

Try something new!

We all have our favourite festivals we want to return to year after year but there are so many festivals in the UK (and abroad!) that we haven’t tried. So this year we all picked a festival that Festival Kidz hasn’t covered yet.

In May Naomi is trying out the gorgeous Shindig Weekender. June sees Sarah checking out Woodlands Festival. In July Lisa R is going to the brand new Timber Festival, Kirsty is going to Port Eliot Festival and Christina is reviewing our first ever French festival, Enchanted Arts. Then in August Lisa M is going to Wickham Festival and Catherine is hoping to try out Victorious and Carfest.
