Festival or Organisation description: 

Rowan and Sarah set up our community interest company, Wild Rumpus, in 2009, to create an amazing, spellbinding weekend where families could play, dance and create together and see breathtaking theatre, dance and music. Our events couldn’t happen without a quite amazing team of people. Cathryn, Callum, Liz, Rory, Olivia and Gemma along with Matt, Louis and Tom from the design team, now work with us all year round, and we’re joined by a wonderful creative bunch of staff and volunteers during the summer.

The Just So Festival is an annual weekend-long camping festival for children and their families. The festival provides a magical experience where art, music and literature are embedded and entwined in a beautiful and wondrous landscape. We provide a broad range of musical, theatrical, and visual performances, workshops and installations within a safe, natural and magical setting. Every clearing and glade holds a new way to unleash creativity. Families discover and delight in the spectacular within the woodland environment during this weekend camping event.

Since starting Just So Festival, we have grown and expanded our curious family of performers, staff and volunteers, and now have a year-round programme of adventures.
