The Good Life Experience at Hawarden Estate, 12–15 September 2019, from £119 - Book now

Now in its sixth year, The Good Life Experience returns to Flintshire in Wales from the 12th to 15th of September 2019.

Set in the shadow of two castles on the Hawarden Estate, 15 minutes drive from Chester, this year’s eclectic line-up features musicians from across the world, co-curated by BBC 6 Music DJ Cerys Matthews. International Teachers of Pop, Snapped Ankles, and Will Burns + Hanna Peel are at the top of the bill, with Modern Nature, Working Men’s Club and Seatbelts also featuring.

As well as hosting most of the festival’s music line-up, its regular Caught by the River stage will welcome broad range of speakers including Patrick Grant, Salena Godden and Richard King. There’s also some excellent cuisine on offer, with intimate supper clubs hosted by world-renowned chefs all weekend!

Elsewhere, the three-day event will feature a free 1930s fairground plus dozens of activities such as axe-throwing, fire-walking, mass singalongs and plenty of ‘How to’ talks.

The festival – which was set up by friends Cerys Matthews, Steve Abbott and Charlie and Caroline Gladstone – is suitable for all ages – with free entry for under 12s, and dogs also welcome.
