Tangled Woods: Get crafty and creative beneath the shade of the Tangled Woods. Learn how to forage and sharpen your bushcraft survival skills deep in the forest. Try your hand at painting and printmaking with the guidance of local artists, or step outside your comfort zone and join the comedy masterclass.

Talk Tent: The Talk Tent is a collaboration with the Shelf Help Community, a self-help book club dedicated to personal development. Attend talks by experts sharing inspiring stories and offering practical tools for your own development journey. 

Roaring Fire Pit: Huddle around the crackling fire at night for a dose of inspiration and adventure. Listen to renowned adventurers share personal stories and adventures, offering you the skills and knowledge to set out on wild, nature-inspired adventures of your own.
