Wood is Truck Festival’s folkier, cleaner, greener – and if organisers are to be believed – mysteriously beardier younger brother. The festival is a celebration of music and nature in the beautiful surroundings of Braziers Park, Oxfordshire.
The event is an intimate family festival with great music and one of the UK’s greenest festivals because it’s powered completely on renewable energy, harnessing the power of the sun, the wind and even the people who attend the event (through a cycle-powered cinema and disco), there are composting toilets (no portaloos!) and a stage made of, you guessed it: wood.
The fesival boasts a strong and diverse line-up of mainly acoustic acts over two stages with over 30 artists performing over the weekend. There will be opportunities for everyone (from children to grandparents!) to participate, with workshops covering everything from singing, woodcraft, yoga, knitting, story-telling, and thatching to making wallets from orange juice cartons, campfire sing-alongs and the now famous fancy dress parade and a fantastic kids tent.
There are plenty of opportunities to learn more about living a more sustainable lifestyle with the festival’s lively lunchtime discussions and talks. Wood even has its own organic café serving delicious locally-sourced food and it’s own pub, The Hippy Arms, selling locally-produced lager, ale and cider.
