Timber Festival

Friday 3 - Saturday 5 July 2020
Feanedock woodland in the heart of The National Forest

Including Field Music, The Unthanks, Sam Lee, Gruff Rhys, MP Caroline Lucas, Hackney Colliery Band, Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, Dame Evelyn Glennie, a Treetop Tightrope Spectacular, wellbeing sessions, nature and wildlife workshops, sustainable living. More to be announced.

Gather round nature lovers, day dreamers, big thinkers, and step into an incredible three-day festival in the National Forest.

A celebration of trees and forests, Timber invites you to re-examine your relationship with the natural world through carefully curated musical performances, installations, debates and workshops.

Gather with artists, musicians and writers as they respond and react to the forest in bold and exhilarating ways. Activists and makers invite you to join them in a joyous celebration of nature. The rebels and the unexpected from the worlds of music, art, performance and wellbeing will play, provoke and inspire as we change the world.

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.

Created by the National Forest Company and award-winning festival producers Wild Rumpus, Timber takes place at Feanedock, on the Leicestershire/Derbyshire border in the National Forest, from 3 - 5 July 2020.
