The ‘family-friendly’ weekend in North Yorkshire returns for its eighth edition this July.

Last year’s was described as “quite possibly the best family festival in the UK”.

Deer Shed Festival returns to Baldersby Park, Topcliffe, from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July.

With a capacity of just 7,000, it offers an intimate and welcoming atmosphere for the whole family – packed with a host of free workshops and activities for the kids.

The festival always has a theme, and this year’s event appears set to once again wow its happy campers.

The Wilderwild is a place shrouded in mystery and magic on the fringes of Baldersby Park, a place where nature has been left to its own devices for many years to create a wilderness filled with adventure, craft and creativity for Deer Shedders to explore.
