TIMBER FESTIVAL 2018!

Timber is an extraordinary new festival where music, art, philosophy and sustainability will weave together into an exhilarating weekend in the heart of the National Forest, one of Britain’s boldest environmental projects. Run in conjunction between MLWW participant group, Wild Rumpus, and the National Forest, MLWW will also be supporting the event. 

Taking place over three days from 6-8 July 2018, it will be the only international forest festival in the UK. Experience the transformative impact of forests with artists, musicians, scientists and thinkers from across the world. Explore what woodlands can mean to us and how we can re-imagine our relationship with our environment.  Play and create in an arboreal wonderland, where the tonic of wildness rules supreme. 

For more information and tickets for the Timber Festival please visit their website.

The aim of MLWW's involvement is to celebrate the achievements of our participant groups, promote the impact of woodland social enterprises to the public and inspire them to envisage local woodlands as community spaces and assets.

We'll be hosting a stall, putting on a range of workshops and working with several of our groups to raise awareness of woodland social enterprise and inspire festival-goers to get involved.

Don't forget the team at the Timber festival are already writing a weekly blog all about putting on an event in a woodland space. This is vital reading for groups looking to put on their own festivals or workshops. You can follow the blog here or at the Timber website here
