Hi Everyone, Helo Bawb
Thank you for making this year’s festival such a wonderful experience.
We’d like to share our Between The Trees 2020 vision with you all. Firstly, we have added another night’s stay. The dates next year are Friday 28th, Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th August. The festival will continue until 12 noon Bank Holiday Monday 31st August (30% more fun !).
We are delighted to tell you that we have secured additional fields and space for parking, campervans & camping. This means we can expand the numbers slightly to about 800, so still retaining that small community festival feel.
A limited number of early bird tickets will be released at 9am on Friday 18th October and then additional tickets will be available in tiered stages. Please make sure that that you secure the camping and parking you want as early as possible, as these sell out very quickly.
This year, we will again be showcasing amazingly talented folk-based artists and bands on the main forest stage. In addition, we will be introducing an exciting second acoustic stage for solo artists and duos.
We had very positive feedback from people who attended the science & nature talks and workshops on otters, bats, fungi, storm petrels and bees. We will be growing this area to have even more interactive talks and science & art workshops next year.
The woodland craft and art activities were very popular with wood carving from West Coast Makers, willow weaving with Jules Wagstaff, hands-on pottery workshops with Bert The Potter, leather working with Raul and water colour techniques with Abi Eleri.
We had the pleasure of Robert Minhinnick and Dan Llywelyn-Hall’s presentation of the Dunes, a book based on the local area. Spoken word and poetry will continue to be an important feature of Between The Trees 2020.
We hope you enjoyed the introduction of the Pagoda Health and Well-Being this year? All the Yoga and Qigong, sound therapy and massage sessions were well received and attended.
We are going to keep Between The Trees small, beautiful and suitable for all ages, so that you can continue to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this magical, natural environment.
Best wishes and looking forward to seeing you all next year,
Andrew and Dawn (Festival Directors)
