Woodlands Festival is an intimate, independent family friendly festival, raising money & awareness for Alzheimer's Society & Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Set in secluded fields surrounded by woodland; somewhere you feel you can truly relax & unwind, meet new people or reconnect with old friends... & where kids can be kids again!

Woodlands Festival has something for all ages & we look
forward to sharing it with you...



“A huge thank you for a fantastic weekend. We have just got back after our first festival experience as a family & just wanted to let you know that we loved every single minute of it! 

The site was beautiful & peaceful, everyone was so friendly & it was all so well organised. The kids loved the space to run, all the brilliant woodland activities,face painting & the silent disco.  We loved the live music, the cinema & the happy,    relaxed vibe.

Please do it again, we'll be there for sure!"

We are listening to your feedback & have been building on all that was loved at Woodlands Festival 2017 & 2018 to make 2019 even better!  We're continually searching for & signing up new activities & entertainment to fill your festival weekend full of fun!

For the kids there will once again be a range of arts & craft, along with woodland activities including treasure hunts, storytelling & bush craft adventures, as well as the Fabularium Forest Disco.

Face painting & fancy dress always play a big part in the festival experience for the little ones & grown-ups alike!  So you're encouraged to bring your own or buy something on site; we want everyone to get into the Woodland’s spirit! 

And then there’s the music… 2019 will once again be jam-packed full of independent, talented artists, some who are firm favourites from previous years, some playing for the first time.  We’re providing a platform for the unsigned to play alongside seasoned professionals, with both plugged & unplugged performances throughout the weekend.

And again, it is all in aid of raising awareness & funds for Alzheimer's Society & Macmillan Cancer Support.  So come, enjoy & help us to help them.


And when the kids’ entertainment wraps up & they’re all tucked away in their sleeping bags, the Woodlands Silent Disco takes over, so the grown-ups can dance the night away under the stars...

Or if you prefer, you can rug up in front of the giant screen at the outdoor cinema, with vintage style pick n mix, hot chocolate or a cocktail...

For those staying the weekend at Woodlands Festival, when you’re ready to call it a night it will only be a short walk back to your cosy camping or glamping festival home.

And when you wake up, there will be Yoga in the morning sunshine to start your day...




As always we want the food on offer at Woodlands Festival to be something special; a showcase of the best of the best from around Kent & the South East… so we’ll be hand-picking a diverse selection of traders; serving up delicious, locally sourced & free range ingredients where possible.  From savoury to sweet, meat treats to vegetarian options, ensuring there will be something to please even the fussiest of eaters! 

And to accompany this will be an impressive selection of locally grown & bottled ciders, along with an array of wines, beer, juices & woodland inspired cocktails.




The beautiful camping field at Woodlands Festival will delight even the toughest camping critic! 

With no pre-allocated pitches, campers are free to choose their preferred location, be it in a quiet corner backing onto the ancient woodland or closer to the action.

It is only a short walk from the car park but please come prepared with a trolley or helpers or both if you have a lot of gear!     For more information, please see the INFO section.

And if you wanted to bring your camper van, motorhome or caravan, that’s no problem!  You will just need to purchase a Live-In Vehicle Pass in addition to your Weekend Ticket.

If you’re more of a glamper than a camper & love the idea of arriving to your very own beautifully kitted out tent, we have some luxurious Bell Tent options for you, your family & friends to enjoy.  

The boutique camping village will be set apart from the general campsite, in a lovely spot overlooking the festival site.   

And to make your glamping experience that little bit more comfortable, you will have your own toilet & shower facilities… So after a great night sleep & a lovely hot shower, you just need to find someone to do the coffee run!   

For more information & to book, see the INFO page.  But be warned... there are a limited number available, so book quickly to avoid disappointment!
