WildFolk Festival arrives this Summer
ParentFolk head back to Claremont Farm,Wirral, this June, for an all new alternative family festival.
It’s official, we’re heading back to the farm this summer, but this year we’re bringing an all new alternative family festival and a bigger event across a larger site.
For the past two summers we’ve welcomed thousands of families to our unique family social at the farm, but this year we’re ready for a new festival feel with the launch of WildFolk.
WildFolk will celebrate family lifestyle and the outdoors in the usual quirky and original ParentFolk style. This year there’ll be a Wild Kids Village curated by Square Pegs, which will be open daily between 12noon and 5pm as part of the festival day. There’ll be lots to keep littelfolk entertained with wildfolk workshops, engaging and immersive arts, musical parades and wonderment.
There’ll be lots for younger ones too, with a larger babyfolk area offering taster workshops, play spaces and entertainment.
Music will remain at the heart of WildFolk with a live stage line up from late afternoon into the evening, and a tipi of choons to keep families on the feet all day, creating those magical festival memories.
The festival will launch on Friday 12th June with an evening event of of eats & beats, so families can don their festival fashion and come and kick off the festival weekend with us. The festival will be open at 11.30am on Saturday and Sunday, with the party going on into the evening on Saturday 13th June. After wild kids village has closed for the day at 5pm, families can head to the eats & beats area for live music and merriment ‘til the sun goes down.
New for 2020 is the StreetFolk area, an engaging and entertaining space dedicated to street sports and lifestyle. With a half pipe in position for the weekend get ready to be entertained with scooter sports and taster workshops, plus a pop up shopping area of streetwear brands.
Our Lifestyle area will celebrate the great outdoors. With a host of brilliant brands, and outdoor companies and experiences joining us for heaps of family fun across the weekend.
A new food and drink area will host plenty of local independent foodies, with delectable dishes and street food eats available all weekend, from vegan to vegetarian and world foods to traditional British bites. There’ll be bars, icecream and sweet treats too.
Speaking about the new festival, Andrew Pimbley from Claremont Farm, said: “We’re excited to be hosting ParentFolk for the third consecutive year and looking forward to the new WildFolk festival feel and line up.
