Return to Nature
Return to Nature
A woodland based celebration of the natural world!
A free day out for the whole family, this new and exciting community focused micro-festival is situated in beautiful ancient woodland.
Combining the brilliance of artists and forward thinkers from Birmingham and wider, we want to motivate everyone to protect the planet and encourage pro-environmental behaviour. We strive to unite different communities of all ages to explore, learn, engage and discover, to come together to provide a sense of place and create positive change.
Return to Nature will include an environmental arts trail of immersive installations, live music, performance art, spoken word, story-telling, delicious food and inspiring talks.
