A wild weekend family adventure, packed full of music, sports, nature and the arts, all set in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside.

Elderflower Fields is a small, safe and friendly festival, designed especially for families with younger children. We believe in the transformative power of spending time immersed in nature,  letting kids be a little bit wild and free, and in appreciating great food and the arts together with friends.

After the necessary cancellation of 2020’s festival due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re excited and positive about returning to celebrate our 10th birthday at Pippingford Park in 2021. Find out what we’re doing to make Elderflower Fields safe and buy tickets with confidence.

The ideal first festival for families, Elderflower Fields is hip, intimate & independent... The nature programme is unparalleled.

The Guardian

Elderflower Fields has raised the bar for what I now want out of a family festival. It really is the festival for parents who aren’t quite sure about taking their family to a festival. Small, but not in a way that there’s nothing to do. It’s quite the opposite in fact...

Festivals For All

We had a totally fantastic time. Elderflower Fields put a massive effort into the special touches and it really pays off; the site looked amazing and was beautiful decorated everywhere we turned.

Festival Kidz

Our second year of attending this amazing May bank holiday event! Once again exceeded all our expectations. Our children had an absolute blast! In their own words last years was "the best weekend ever" and this year was "even better!"
