5 reasons to visit Elderflower Fields in 5 weeks

22 - 25 May at Pippingford Park, Sussex

Pippingford Park is looking glorious in the sunshine and ahead of Elderflower Fields, here are five reasons to visit the festival in five weeks.

The So Sussex Sunday picnic has become something of a trademark and is one of the highlights of the weekend. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon with friends and family (or even strangers), and it’s all included in your ticket.

Elderflower Fields is almost certainly the only festival in the world to supply every guest with a free shared picnic filled with delicious tasters of local produce.

Elderflower Fields has more free activities on offer per child than any other festival we know. All run by a dedicated team of professional organisations providing kids with the opportunity to discover new skills and have fun.

Rafting, mud hut building, music masterclasses, parkour, science, disc golf, night walks, slacklining, bush craft skills, art workshops, sports camp, kayaking, orienteering, pond dipping, drama workshops, climbing wall and more. All FREE with your ticket.

The Green People Woodland Spa is now taking bookings for luxurious festival pampering. You can also prebook supervised sports or arts camp sessions via their website so that the kids are taken care of while you relax.

Gypsy, folk, blues, rock, cajun, swing, dance and classical. With a great line up this year there’s something for everyone. There will also be a unique performance being curated on site by East Sussex Music Service as part of the BBC Ten Pieces, as well as the winners of the Youth Musician Competition.

Some of the finest local food providers will be at Elderflower Fields this year. Some regular favourites and a few new surprises to enjoy. All supplying affordable high quality meals. Working hard with suppliers, they have made sure all diets are catered for – especially the kids.

The cocktail bar will be back with a new stage and late music for the night owls and two further bars will be serving up craft beers, local ales, ciders and more…
