Wild Rumpus, the award-winning producers behind Just So Festival, in collaboration with the National Forest Company, invite you to journey into the woods this summer for a unique and extraordinary new venture, Timber Festival. Situated in the heart of the National Forest, one of Britain’s boldest environmental projects, Timber is a weekend-long camping festival exploring the transformative impact of forests and reimagining our relationship with the wild, where music, theatre, spoken word, science, philosophy, sustainability and so much more weave together through an innovative, diverse and exhilarating programme. Highlights include the world premiere of Seek, Find, Speak, the outdoor theatre companion to The Lost Words, music headliners Jane Weaver and This Is The Kit, a keynote address from Stuart Maconie, the English festival premiere of Jony Easterby’s new interactive performance Tree and Wood, and the greenfield festival premiere of Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon. Festival goers can also look forward to an abundance of top quality and immersive features including world class musicians, thrilling aerial acrobatics, breathtaking light and fire installations, a masked ball, eco spa and other wellbeing activities, tree tents, and woodlands workshops. Play, create and discover in an arboreal wonderland, where the tonic of wildness rules supreme.
