The Just So Festival is a million miles from your average family festival. We’ve raised the bar by blending the fabulous festival experience with the very best UK arts activity for families, from theatre to dance, classical music to storytelling. We dreamt of a festival that was all about families, where all our children got painty and messy and sang and played instruments and danced in the woods, where they got involved in the arts on their own territory, on their own terms, with the beetles and the leaves and birds. Our dream came true for the first time in 2010 and our creative woodland adventures are set to continue in 2011.

Set in 65 acres of ancient English woodland in Staffordshire, festival families immerse themselves in music, art, cinema and dance in the beautiful natural landscape, There are no huge fields to overwhelm, or teenage hordes to navigate, but an enchanted forest to explore. Around every corner, behind ever tree, you could find an amazing light installation, some acoustic jazz in a woodland clearing, take part in some very messy art, or run into the Gruffalo. Just So Festival 2011 – let the wild rumpus start!
