Hi Tim. How did you come to have your own cabin in the woods at the top of the festival?
We got offered this room four years ago, as a place for people to hang out, and we wanted to do something eclectic, because my personal taste is quite varied.

What’s happening this year?
Loads of things. Today, we’ve had Chris Hawkins doing a radio show. We’ve had Paddy Considine’s band. We’ve got Tony Husband doing some drawings.

And now, with the tenth anniversary over, Andy and Ben and everyone on the team would like to take this moment to say a very special thanks.


“From that first tent-pole climbing high-wire act at Abbot Hall Park in Kendal a decade ago, we never believed it would turn into what it has. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to every single person who has, by coming or contributing, made this festival with us.”


See you in the fields for another ten years.
