Create your own Wallace and Shaun The Sheep at a clay workshop with Aardman, learn to Swing dance with Gloster Swing Dance, discover the Japanese art of Kumihimo Braiding or make your own Puppet with Puppet Stew!

Drop off your tent

There aren't many festivals that let you drive into the campsite to drop off your tent and then let you park your car for free. But guess what?! At Wychwood you can! That's right, forget lugging your tents, sleeping bags, clothes and supplies through a campsite looking for the perfect spot, we let our guests drive right into the campsite, drop their gear and park up, making it the easiest experience possible for campers!

Activities for the whole family

Capoeira at Wychwood Festival 2022
Capoeira

We love it when families participate together – especially if it's something they wouldn't normally have the chance (or maybe the confidence) to try. Belly Dance? Charleston? Brazilian Capoeira? Even Line Dancing!

Let your teens be independent

We're proud to say that Wychwood offers a safe family friendly environment, and we're big enough to have LOADS to explore but small enough to know your family are safe. This provides a great environment to let your teens enjoy the festival with a little independence!

Grown ups can have lots of fun too!

If you fancy a weekend to yourselves don't worry, Wychwood isn't just for families, we provide lots of fun for the adults with silent discos and stand-up comedy each night. A range of bars including our new Prestbury Club VIP and of course our line-up of your favourite bands! We also provide plenty of time and space to relax in our Healing Gardens.

Sensational Street Food

We hand pick some of the best street food from across the UK with an emphasis on local suppliers! We recommend highly working your way through all the food on offer!

We have our own Comedy Club!
