Best New Festival in the UK 2018, Timber is a joint venture between the National Forest Company and Wild Rumpus, who have come together to create an international festival exploring the transformative impact of forests. Gather round all nature lovers, day dreamers, big thinkers.
Timber is a three day festival with an eclectic line-up of world-class music, theatre, circus, dance, comedy and outdoor arts. The festival is also a celebration of trees and encourages audiences to re-examine their relationship with the natural world through debates, talks and workshops.
Step into an incredible weekend festival of debate, celebration and reflection in the National Forest. Timber invites you to stand up and be counted as we rethink our relationship with trees and forests.
Join new thinkers as they challenge us to re-examine our relationship with the world. Gather with artists, musicians and writers, as they respond and react to the forest in bold and exhilarating ways. Activists and makers will invite you to join them in joyous celebration of nature. The rebels and the unexpected from the worlds of music, art, performance and well-being will play, provoke and inspire as we change the world.
Timber takes place at Feanedock, a 70 acre woodland site on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border and part of the forest in the making at the heart of the National Forest, near Ashby de la Zouch. Feanedock is what the festival is all about, so we ask that you explore and revel in this beautiful landscape but also respect it, try not to disturb local wildlife and help us to keep it clean and tidy, use the correct recycling facilities and leave no trace.
So come on in, unplug, walk into the trees and fall under Timber's spell. Recharge under the leaves. It's good for the soul.
