Timber – The National Forest – Feanedock – Ashby de la Zouch – 5/6/7 July 2019

Timber Festival 2019 will take place on 5/6/7 July 2019, at Feanedock, near Ashby de la Zouch, in the National Forest.

Timber is a joint venture between the National Forest Company and Wild Rumpus, who have come together to create an international festival exploring the transformative impact of forests.


… is the UK’s boldest environmentally-led regeneration project: the creation of England’s first new forest in a thousand years. Spanning 200 square miles across parts of Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Staffordshire, it’s an imaginative and ambitious statement of sustainable development.

The National Forest is transforming lives, the landscape and the economy. Over the last 25 years, more than eight and a half million trees have been planted by communities and landowners, increasing woodland cover to 20%, well above the national average.

However there’s more to this Forest than trees. This transformation inspires people and businesses to connect, to get back in touch with nature and to flourish. We are creating a distinctive sense of place, a forest culture for the 21st century.
