Feast in the Woods

26-29 May 2017

Secret woodland location in Kent

A family friendly off-grid camping weekend nestled within a secret woodland, to celebrate all things tasty and the great outdoors.

* Communal Feast * Bushcraft *Forest School * Wild Swimming * Nature Walks * Food Demonstrations and Talks * Tree Climbing * And more!

Join us for a weekend of relaxing, learning about the countryside, community and food, wild camping, eating and exploring.

From the moment you arrive at our secret woodland location, hidden away from roads and villages, beneath a canopy of trees, the magic begins.

Put up your tent and settle in, then join your neighbours around the camp-fire and begin to relax. You are about to experience a fantastic weekend full of outdoor activities, lazy walks, great food, collaboration creativity and community.

Experience the thrill of camping in the wild – no shower blocks, no electricity, no running water! Don’t worry, we have compost toilets and plenty of solar lighting to keep us comfortable. Bring everything you need, and take everything away at the end.

Join us in the Woods!

 

The Feast

On Saturday evening we will sit together under the stars to share in a fabulous off-grid foraged feast, cooked by our friends at Tasty Beast.

Find them on twitter @tastybeast and facebook.com.

And if this were not enough – we will soon be releasing details of their amazing breakfast menu including vegan and vegetarian options. Mmmm.

 

Sunday BBQ

Bring your tasty treats along to the Sunday BBQ by the lake.

We provide a veggie and a non veggie BBQ and coal – you do the rest! 

Bring food to share with your fellow wild campers, have a dip in the lake, sit among the wild flowers and relax the afternoon away.

 

The Cider Barn

Our firm favourites Virtual Orchard will be returning (it wouldn’t be right if they didn’t make an appearance!) and will bring back their award winning ciders, as well as their new produce from sister company Wharf Distillery. 

Non alcoholic drinks will also be available, including fresh apple juices and soft drinks.

 

Music

We welcome all musicians to come and join our resident noise makers around the camp fire. Rachael and Jim will start the evening’s sing song and we hope that you will bring your ukuleles, guitars, in fact anything that makes a noise, and celebrate sundown with the camp.

 

Willow Bushcraft

We can’t wait for our new friends at Willow Bushcraft to join this year.

A love of the outdoors, and old country skills has led Lisa to qualify as a Bushcraft practitioner. Willow Bushcraft is the product of years of experience in outdoor activities and working with children. Supported by her husband and two youngest boys, they will provide a family orientated session pitched for all levels of experience.

Through Willow Bushcraft Lisa will provide quality skills instruction for families through a series of hour long sessions, based around fire lighting using a variety of traditional and man-made methods, followed up with some backwoods cooking.

She will be based in her secret camp deep in the woods… will you find her?

 

Circus Skills

Our friends Sophie and Miz will teach aerial hoop work and circus skills under the trees. 

 

Amazing Travelling Kipperhouse

The best news! Our new friend Mike Smylie ‘Kipperman’ will be returning all the way from Gloucestershire to smoke you a kipper in time for breakfast with his Amazing Travelling Kipperhouse.

Mike campaigns across the UK and beyond to promote the health benefits of kippers as well as sustainable fishing. He was a fantastic addition to the event last year and we cannot wait to welcome him back.

So bring some pennies and queue up to see his amazing mobile smokehouse arriving at Feast in the Woods.

FAQ

Cider Barn

The Cider Barn sells soft drinks, ciders, spirits and – of course – cider! Please bring your pocket money as the bar only takes cash.

Camping

We will be wild camping in a woodland. There are glades and areas under the trees suitable for one or two tents, as well as a large clearing with the camp fire and Cider Barn in for those who want to be nearer the action. 

Leave No Trace

There are no bins and waste collection on site – this is a woodland in the middle of nowhere! Please leave your camp as leafy and unspoiled as you found it, and take away everything that you brought with you. If you are bringing alcohol – consider bringing plastic bottles instead of glass so that you can carry it home more easily.

Last year we did not find a single piece of litter in the woods after the event – you guys rock! Let’s make it the same this year.

Toilets

Our lovely tree bog toilets are still standing! Composting toilets and portaloos are available, and for those who don’t mind a wild wee, there are a few trees dotted about the place!

Water

There is no running water on site. We have water for the Feast and for the washing up station; please bring enough water for you and your family, including washing yourselves. 

Driving and Parking

We will send directions nearer the time to ticket holders.

There is limited parking on site, which may be on a track or on grass. Parking is not more than a 5 minute walk from the camping areas. And we offer wheelbarrows to those who have bell tent cities to put up! 

Please only bring one car per family.

Nearby Supermarkets

The nearest supermarket is the large Sainsburies in Ashford, a 15 minute drive away. We discourage guests from leaving the site once parked up as it distracts from the peace and quiet of the woodland, and increases the damage done to grass and tracks.
