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

23rd – 26th May 2025

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

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!"
