A new family festival, Into the Trees, from the team behind the hugely popular Elderflower Fields, is offering families a chance to explore, relax and get wild in beautiful Sussex woodland this September. From mountain-boarding to mud-pie making, tree-climbing to kayaking, the festival promises a huge range of woodland-based art, sports and environmental activities to suit all ages. And, being mid-September, it’s a last chance to grab some fresh air and nature before hibernation calls us indoors to roost for the winter.
The setting is the ancient, protected woodland of Pippingford Park, in the heart of Ashdwon Forest. Many Brighton families will know it as the site of Elderflower Fields, the big sister of Into The Trees, which has won awards for its creative, relaxed family vibe since its inception in 2012. Now the So Sussex team behind both festivals hope to offer the same but on a smaller scale and with the focus on family camping, adventurous nature-based activities, and inspiring kids to explore the beautiful local countryside of Sussex.
So Sussex offer people a range of educational, fun outdoor experiences in the Sussex countryside to develop people’s understanding and appreciation of the local environment. Working in partnership with like-minded local organisations and a range of professional individuals, the team deliver outdoor experiences such as the successful Schools Without Walls programme. Elderflower Fields and Into The Trees are the first two festivals from So Sussex, who say they have exciting plans to launch further events encouraging kids and their families to spend more time outdoors.
