Simon Hough, Events Business Manager at Westonbirt commented, "We are planning a festival that truly celebrates all that our trees and nature inspire. The new format will have a focus on family fun, with activities chosen to celebrate the roles trees play in our lives during this, the International Year of Forests."
Visitors to Treefest will have the rare chance to camp in the stunning National Arboretum. Festival weekend and camping tickets start from £35 for Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members and must be bought in advance.
Daily admission is free to Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum members. Standard daily tickets will give access to the exciting daily line-up and also allow free of charge admission to the evening live local music.
Advance admission is £8 for concessions, £10 adults and kids go free throughout the event.
Traditional favourites, including wood carving demonstrations and craft sales, will complement the new activities with hands-on learning, local food, falconry displays, Morris dancing, demonstrations from the Westonbirt tree team and a medieval village add to the festival line up.
