September – Reading Abbey Ruins, Abbey St, Reading, Berkshire
Elderflower Fields was born in 2012 out of a desire to create a new festival designed especially for families and kids. In their first year they really didn’t know what to expect. Intending to produce a party for a few hundred friends and family, their plans snowballed and before they knew it, they had sold over a thousand tickets. What is more surprising is that everyone loved it! The sun shone, kids played and everyone danced in the beautiful surroundings of the Bentley estate.
It was so popular that they did it again in 2013 and this time twice as many people came – largely encouraged through word of mouth from the previous year’s customers. the festival had more kids’ activities, more music and more delicious local food & drink. And the sun even came back too!
In 2014 the event moved to a new, bigger venue, Pippingford Park. It’s beautiful, hilly and wild, and it has become a great home to Elderflower Fields.
The team intentionally keep Elderflower Fields small – it’s part of what makes it such a safe and special weekend for families. But they also try to increase the quantity and quality of the activities and performances every year, so that there’s always something new and exciting for their guests.
