Timber Festival CANCELLED at Feanedock, 3 — 6 July 2020 Tickets from £84.80

Timber Festival returns for a third outing this year with a heady mix of music, art and sustainability. On the Derbyshire and Leicestershire border, the festival celebrates how brilliant forests are for both personal and societal wellbeing.

This year’s line up is packed full of great artists, thinkers and experiences. Field Music, Gruff Rhys, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Sam Lee and The Unthanks are some of our musical highlights this year. We also look forward to a keynote speech by MP Caroline Lucas and an appearance from Poet Laureate Simon Armitage.

There will also be a range of arboreal activities and installations across the 70-acre woodland site, owing to the fact the festival was created by the National Forest Company (responsible for creating the National Forest, one of Britain’s boldest environmental projects and the first forest to be created at scale in England for over 1000 years) and Wild Rumpus (award-winning producers of the Just So Festival).

Add into the mix an extensive natural wellbeing programme (think yoga, Forest Bathing, feasting and foraging), Timber Festival promises more woodland wonder than you can shake a stick at.
