baloji-credit-nenad-obradovic-IMG_6986.jpg

In 2018 The Good Life Experience will celebrate its fifth Birthday and it's going to be one heck of a party! Taking place in the shadow of two castles on the Hawarden Estate, the festival is absolutely unique. Founded by four friends –BBC 6 Music's Cerys Matthews MBE, Steve Abbott and Charlie and Caroline Gladstone- if it fits in with their idea of The Good Life, it features at the festival.

Expect raucous music from all over the world curated by Cerys, axe throwing, foraging, campfire cooking sessions with world class chefs, daily feasts, wild children, mass sing-a-longs, over 40 expert craftspeople, beer served by experts, talks by explorers, abseiling, a free 1930s fairground, tree climbing, poetry, literature and endless How To… talks. And everything is aimed at adults and children alike; there aren’t many festivals that truly do that. 

Under 12s go free | Dogs welcome | 15 minutes from Chester.

Early Bird Tickets available here.
