Elderflower Fields is a small, independent festival, created in 2012 by a small team of friends and set within the stunning private grounds and magical woodland of Pippingford Park in the Ashdown Forest – the perfect environment for kids and grown-ups to fully escape for the weekend.

Now entering its fifth year, Elderflower Fields builds upon the winning formula of a festival designed especially for families with children. It’s an exciting and unique family experience that opens children and their parents’ minds to new opportunities in sport, music, the arts, the environment and food in the great outdoors.

It’s probably the best thing we’ve done together as a family, ever!’
