Top reasons to visit Wychwood Festival in 2023 – Activities

Activities for the whole family

We pride ourselves on having a massive programme of workshops and activities for all the family to get involved in. This year we’re excited to be hosting over 100 workshops and activities for all ages. We’ve announced a handful so far including magic workshops, circus skills, interactive story telling, junk drumming, bleephaus electronic music, art & crafts workshops, street theatre, buskers and so much more.

Make sure you are up early on Saturday the 3rd because Mr Motivator will be getting the day started right at 11am!

Howlin’ Pete’s

New for 2023, step inside Howlin’ Pete’s, the party palace of Wychwood! Get up on stage and sing Mustang Sally with Barry from Eastenders, take the little ones to their first rave with Junior Jungle (Big up the littlest massive!), try your hand at musical bingo or catch cabaret acts such as Elvis Lesley! Better still when the headliners finish head over to Howlin’ Pete’s for some silent disco fun!

Top reasons to visit Wychwood Festival in 2023 – Under 10s go FREE

Free tickets for Under 10s

Yes that’s right, bring your littlest ones to Wychwood for £0. All children under the age of 10 now get into Wychwood for FREE!

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!

The Wychwood Comedy Club!

Every night The Garden stage becomes Wychwood’s very own comedy club with 5 of the best comedians in the UK taking the stage each night. This year we have Angela Barnes headlining the Friday night with our Saturday and Sunday headliners to be announced.

Sensational Street Food

We have hand picked some of the best street food from across the UK with an emphasis on local suppliers! With some many incredible options this year we recommend trying as many as you can! We may or may not already have a detailed plan of what team Wychwood will be trying this year…
