Tickets go on sale for International Forest Festival, Timber

We are proud to be working with the National Forest to create a new Air Ambulance Memorial Woodland, and we would like to share details of the new annual camping festival, Timber, an extraordinary new festival where music, art, philosophy and sustainability will weave together to form an exhilarating weekend in the heart of the National Forest, as part of one of Britain’s boldest environmental projects.

Taking place over three days from 6-8 July 2018, it will be the only international forest festival in the UK. Experience the transformative impact of forests with artists, musicians, scientists and thinkers from across the world. Explore what woodlands can mean to us and how we can re-imagine our relationship with our environment. Play and create in an arboreal wonderland, where the tonic of wildness rules supreme.

Prepare to be inspired and inspire others in turn. Expect a curated programme of talks and discussions exploring the interface between humans and nature, from the impact we have on the environment, to the benefits that woods and forests can have on individuals and communities, and the ways that art, poetry and film reflect the natural world.

Three main stages play host for live music. Venture into the woods to be immersed in compelling sound installations, storytelling, soundscapes and DJ sets, and choirs will be bringing the woods to life through song.

Expect incredible international performance as dusk falls each night, and discover the unexpected as into the night the forest will be transformed by spectacular light installations.

A not-to-be-missed, joyous exploration of food and drink, from farmers’ market stalls to food trucks, foraging workshops to picnics and banquets, will also be available at this three day festival.
