Wilderness, wild people, wild festival, wild beauty

It's no secret, I love Wilderness festival. It's held in Oxfordshire in Cornbury park and since the first time we went (after winning tickets) I've been a huge fan. I dream about it all year and it's all over way too fast. This year was no exception. It's a festival where music plays second fiddle (see what I did there!?) to all the other amazing things that happen in the beautiful surroundings.

Already it seems so long ago, and already I'm booking tickets for next year.


    From the Shakespeare play in the woods, to the camel rides;
    From the trapeze acts to the cocktails:

    from the naked knitting to the bearded burger chefs:
    from the skinny dipping in the lake to the cinema in the fields;


    from the posting anonymous postcards via the Wilderness postmen and women to the bubble teas,;


    from the roller disco to the gospel music at the shack;

    from the main stage and Sam Smith in the rain to the burning tower and fireworks in the warm evening;

    from the Chap Olympics to the intellectual talks;


    there was nothing, nothing not to love.

    Can I tempt you to join us?

    See all my photos on flicker here (including the tents after the storm on the last night!! We survived OK though)
