This year sees Wilderness announce its first completely vegetarian and vegan banqueting tent – The Wilderness Kitchen. Helen Graham, Robin Gill, Lee Westcott, and Ivan Tisdall-Downes will each join forces with Alex Head’s Social Pantry to deliver the four mouth-watering vegetarian and vegan feasts across the weekend.
Whether it’s drawing, dancing, acting or just listening to a story, it’s all going to be there for you at the Storystock Circus tent with stories told through a kaleidoscope of words, pictures, sounds and colours.
The internationally acclaimed Flying Seagull Project will be bringing their unique brand of festival fun to the Wilderness once again. Their madcap menagerie of Circus, Music, Kids Comedy Corner, Face-painting, Pirates, Wild West Hoe-Down’s and Magical mayhem has earned them the reputation of the one-stop-laughter-shop that guarantees giggles and secures smiles. You know it can only be summertime when the Seagulls come to town.
