Five Reason to Go to the Elderflowerfields Festival


I don't mind telling you that I am all ready for the first festival of my festival year. For a change I have a new one to experience, and it's fairly local to me - so good new, I won't be arriving knackered after a long drive. Fingers crossed for no traffic jams. So apart from meeting me, what would you expect at Elderflowerfields, well according to my spies you can expect a lot of fun! And lovely scenery, and the top 5 things are:-

THE PICNIC 

The So Sussex Sunday picnic has become something of our trademark and is one of the highlights of the weekend. It's the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends and family (or even strangers), and it's all included in your ticket. We are pretty sure Elderflower Fields is the only festival in the world to supply every guest with a free shared picnic filled with delicious tasters of local produce. And then there's the legendary chocolate cake...

THE ACTIVITIES
Elderflower Fields has more free activities on offer per child that any other festivawe know. All run by a dedicated team of professional organisations providing kids with the opportunity to discover new skills and have fun. Rafting, mud hut building, music masterclasses, parkour, science, disc golf, night walks, slacklining, bush craft skills, art workshops, sports camp, kayaking, orienteering, pond dipping, drama workshops, climbing wall and more.

WOODLAND SPA & HOT TUB BUS
The Green People Woodland Spa is now taking bookings for luxurious festival pampering. You can also prebook supervised sports or arts camp session via our website so that the kids are taken care of while you relax. And of course, the Double Decker Hot Tub Bus is back too!

MUSIC
Gypsy, folk, blues, rock, cajun, swing, dance and classical. We're super excited about the line up this year and think we have something for everyone. We also welcome a unique performance being curated on site by East Sussex Music Service as part of the BBC Ten Pieces, as well as the winners of our Youth Musician Competition.

LOCAL FOOD & DRINK
We have some of the finest local food providers at Elderflower Fields this year. Some regular favourites and a few new surprises to enjoy. All supplying affordable high quality meals. We've worked hard with suppliers to ensure all diets are catered for - especially the kids.
The cocktail bar will be back with a new stage and late music for the night owls and two further bars will be serving up craft beers, local ales, ciders and more...


Elderflower Fields will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th May (which is a bank holiday and the start of summer half term for most schools).

It is going to be held in Pippingford Park, in the heart of the Ashdown Forest. Pippingford is big, beautiful and wild! It’s got loads of space to run around in and stunning views across rugged heathland and ancient woods. Is also really easy to get to from both Brighton and London...
