Put this in your diary immediately: Timber is a new festival taking place from July 6th to 8th, featuring everything you'd expect from a summer fest with added woodland wonders.
It's in the National Forest in the Midlands, for a start, but the arboreal theme doesn't stop there. Check out artist and producer Jony Easterby's new interactive performance Tree and Wood, nature-related songs and conversation with BBC Radio 4 producer Geoff Bird and special guests in Wilderness Tracks, a Dawn Chorus to get your vocal chords stuck into, a talk from Stuart Maconie about post-industrial Britain's changing landscape and heaps more.
If you just fancy music then Jane Weaver, This Is The Kit and Hope & Social are headlining, while there's a Masked Ball for party-goers, screenings of woodland-themed films including Princess Mononoke and lots for families – including, of course, tree-climbing – art-lovers (check out Luke Jerram's Museum of the Moon), wellbeing fans (eco-spa!) and basically anyone who likes having a nice time in the woods.
Timber (adult day tickets are from £40; weekend camping tickets £120) looks to be an intimate festival too – the capacity is just 6,000.
