This year, we actively encouraged you to DRESS UP and it was all about the ANIMALS!  Big ones, small ones, in between ones, whichever you fancy! We saw families of animals all over the festival! Watch this space for our theme for 2019!

Bring a sense of adventure! Yup, although we have lots of under cover options, there's lots going on outwith those areas in what is fondly known as the Great Outdoors!!! We all know Scotland and it's all about getting involved. We've loads of family activities not just stuff for children.

Some of the workshops are programmed, others will be on an open drop-in basis. None can be booked, sorry. If a workshop is full when you get there, don’t worry, there will be lots of other things happening around the WILDHOOD site.

The festival is accessible, some of the forest may be a little bumpy but no problem otherwise! Everyone can enjoy the festival experiences! On the Sunday, we hired a PAMIS Pamiloo with hoists (there's disabled loos all weekend). We'll be adding to this next year striving to make WILDHOOD a completely accessible festival. Remember, carers go free, please get in touch when booking.

You are not permitted to bring alcohol into WILDHOOD, there will be alcohol available inside the festival.

CAMPING

There’s nothing quite like a family camping adventure for creating magical memories!  We welcome you to bring your own tent, hire boutique tents or bring a camper van. There's lots of space in the grounds of Tullibole Castle, yet the WILDHOOD festival is cosy and intimate so little adventurers will never have to walk too far for amenities, refreshments and fun.

Make the most of Scotland's only dedicated children’s camping festival by arriving on the Friday afternoon from 4pm. We'll have some entertainment organised for night time and then on Saturday evening, campers will have exclusive access to campfire, storytelling, song and dance, as the sun goes down. And afterwards, sleepyheads will just be a hop, skip and a jump from their cosy beds!

There are no allocated pitches, all we ask is to respect thy neighbour. If you’re joining forces with other families and want to create your own mini WILDHOOD village, no problem but please try to arrive around the same time. 

If you're bringing a campervan, there's no hook up facilities. Please purchase campervan tickets so we know where to allocate you when you arrive.

You are not permitted to bring alcohol into WILDHOOD, there will be alcohol available inside the festival. You can bring alcohol to the campsite but please no glass.
