A unique camping experience with a relaxed festival atmosphere

Running across the school holidays, from Thursday 25th July to Tuesday 27th August 2024, the event is the perfect location for camping and relaxation. Guests can escape the everyday and immerse themselves in nature, music, creative arts and wellness. With a welcoming and relaxed ethos, the campsite is perfect for all ages.

There is a range of activities on offer for children, with 3-4 free activities per day at the weekend and 1-2 per day on the weekdays. These include a drop-in kids’ crafts club, the ever-popular superhero kids’ disco, camp-fire songs, talent shows, family yoga, story-telling, outdoor games, dance sessions and more.

Wellness Experiences

Wild Canvas will feature an enhanced well-being offering for adults, with free morning sessions (from yoga to pilates, site runs and bootcamps), a range of classes throughout the day, a treatment tent and a new riverside sauna to complete the outdoor experience in a brand new dedicated riverside spot.

A free kids club will run alongside adults classes most days so the whole family can enjoy all that the event has to offer.

Riverside Location

Wild Canvas is located on the grounds of the grand, historic Turvey House Estate, a Grade I-listed country estate in 150 acres of picturesque parkland with the River Great Ouse running through it. Hire a fully furnished tipi or yurt, or BYOT (bring your own tent) or campervan and pitch up on the spacious, flat grassland site with river views.

It’s a prime spot for river activities, with the chance to try some paddleboarding or kayaking.
