Elderflower Fields is a small, independent festival, created in 2012 by a small team of friends and set within the stunning private grounds and magical woodland of Pippingford Park in the Ashdown Forest – the perfect environment for kids and grown-ups to fully escape for the weekend.
Now entering its fourth year, Elderflower Fields builds upon the winning formula of a festival designed especially for families with children. It’s an exciting and unique family experience that opens children and their parents’ minds to new opportunities in sport, music, the arts, the environment and food in the great outdoors.

"We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive comments and feedback received from festival goers over the last three years. Their words sum up the ethos of the festival far better than we ever could and inspire us to improve and make Elderflower Fields 2015 the best yet”.
“We believe in supporting the local economy and protecting and promoting the beautiful Sussex countryside, so as much of the infrastructure, food and drink as possible is sourced from within Sussex.”

"What sets Elderflower Fields Festival apart from all the others? The answer, quite simply, is its focus on localism. From the complimentary glass of sparkling elderflower wine which greeted guests on arrival, right through to the generous free picnic of local (gorgeous) produce which rounded off the weekend." - Anne-Marie Krolick, The Argus

"This festival was populated by happy families replete with festival cheer and zillions of small children enjoying their freerange festie-freedom." - Anne-Marie Krolick, The Argus
