Wilderness: Festival in Oxfordshire. 12-14 August

Wilderness is the thinking persons multi-cultural festival of music, performances and theatrical spectaculars. The theatre and art programme includes The Old Vic Tunnels ‘The Magical Alter Ego Wardrobe’  where it will be possible to live as your alter ego for the night? The components needed to make this metamorphosis possible: a lecture, a dressing up tent, a magical alter ego wardrobe and a candle lit circle of joy! And you get to conduct your own orchestra to the rhythm of your alter ego? Go Opera promise an immersive experience for listeners blurring the boundaries between reality and the imaginary, between performer and observer. The Secret Garden Party late-night concept party ‘Where The Wild Things Are‘ promises radical, magical and wild style of entertainments – transforming an ancient forest clearing into a theatrical landscape of make-believe. The Last Tuesday Society ‘Masked Ball’ includes ballroom dancing, late night story-telling and puppet theatre. The multi-arts festival includes literary debate from Intelligence Squared and The Idler; music from Toots and the Maytals, Antony and the Johnsons, Laura Marling, Daniel Johnston and The Low Anthem; and gastronomy and banquets from Skye Gyngell from Petersham Nurseries Café, Sam and Sam Clark from Moro.

Wilderness is curated by the organisers of Secret Garden Party and Lovebox located among the lakes, forests and parkland of the ancient Wychwood Forest and Oxfordshire’s Cornbury Estate. August 12-14
