Fancy getting back to nature at a special two day event? We will be.
Into the Trees, from the folk who organised the amazing Elderflower Fields, will be taking place this year on September 3 and 4 at Pippingford Park in Nutley, East Sussex. Seeing as we enjoyed Elderflower Fields festival so much and loved the amazing woodland of the Ashdown Forest - we couldn't wait to get our hands on some tickets.
Into the Trees is a fascinating family day out which takes you deep into the Ashdown Forest to explore the amazing woodland.
There will be six diverse woodland zones full of activities including:
Working in the trees - demonstration and craft workshops from skilled blacksmiths, tool makers, trug and basket makers and many more.
Playing in the trees - explore the tree canopies and play in the branches with climbing and slacklining. Enjoy woodland storytelling and games in the trees.
Art in the trees - create wonderful works of art with your family from wood and browse beautiful artwork from local artists.
Living in the trees - explore ways in which we can live in the trees. Get mucky with the kids and try mini mud hut building or check out the tree tents or Woodland Hut Company or Mark's True Tiny House.
Wildlife in the trees - join the brilliant experts from Sussex Wildlife Trust and other partners to learn more about the wonderful wildlife in the woods.
Surviving in the trees - discover ways in which we can survive in the woods with bush craft skills, foraging and more.
The above photographs were taken by me in the woodland area at Elderflower Fields this year, it will give you a feel of what sort of things will be on offer at Into the Trees.
What's more tickets are on sale now and a family ticket is only £22, adults from £8, children from £5 and under 5's are free.
There will be locally sourced food and drink on offer and free car parking.
This will be the second year that Into the Trees is taking place and we really can't wait.
