May festival set for Ashdown Forest

More than 40 bands and performers on two stages, sports and arts, Sussex food and drink, a woodland spa, wellbeing classes, family picnic and cocktail bar and local craft beers will be star attractions at an outdoor festival next year.

Elderflower Fields Festival will be held in private grounds on the Ashdown Forest from May 23-May 26. Organisers say it’s an independent festival created by a small, local group of friends - ‘the perfect environment for kids and grown-ups to fully escape for the weekend.’

All the kids’stuff is great, they say, but Elderflower Fields insists parents unwind too. “We’ve created a safe, spacious and stimulating environment for children, while building exciting music and activities for adults.” Adult weekend tickets cost from £85; children’s from £40. Visit:
