Reviews: 2018, 2017 2016.

The perfect festival to kickstart 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.
