Timber Festival is a unique, site-specific festival celebrating nature. Located at Feanedock, a 70-acre woodland site in the National Forest, Timber returns for a second year fresh from winning Best New Festival at the UK Festival Awards. An incredible weekend festival of debate and reflection amongst the trees, Timber celebrates the positive impact of nature and what it means to live sustainably.
Created by the National Forest Company and Wild Rumpus (award-winning producers of the Just So Festival, renowned as one of the top family festivals in the world), experience the transformative impact of forests with artists, musicians, and scientists. 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.
The festival programme incorporates acts from spoken word to theatre, music and wellbeing workshops. This year’s music line-up includes live performances from Gwenno, Hannah Peel, Stealing Sheep, You Tell Me, Jesca Hoop and guest curator Elizabeth Alker from BBC Radio 3 and 6Music, to name a few. There's theatre and performance from the likes of Cardboardia and Pif Paf, ground-breaking circus from Max Calaf and Lost in Translation, and speakers including broadcaster Stuart Maconie, Phill Jupitus and author Laura Barton. Festival-goers can also take part in forest bathing, wellness workshops and visit a woodland cinema.
