You can read what happened at last years festival here.

Saturday evening is the bring your own barbecue where festival goers get to discuss the days activities. You can do this as you cook some sausages or vegetarian options on the campsite barbecue. Its a popular spot for the first drink of the day.

Although the weekend is filled with a wide range of activities and events, you dont have to join everything. The more relaxed amongst you can pick and chose the talks and walks you want to attend. You can then spend time relaxing around a campfire to the sites and sounds of nature.

We have minimal light pollution at the Secret Campsite and this enables a fantastic star show on clear nights. So, as the children attempt to drop off, you can pick out the space station flying overhead.
