The happiest, friendliest, quirkiest festival in the land!
Established 1990 • over 80 diverse artists • 6 stages •150 free workshops • street theatre • huge carnival procession • intimate crowd of 4,000 • lush Victorian gardens on Wiltshire/Dorset border • voted Best UK Family Festival • The perfect escape from it all!
Held in a Victorian Garden in North Dorset, we’re independently run, care deeply about what we do and are passionate about making sure that every single festival-goer, whatever their age or background has the time of their life at Larmer Tree Festival.
After a truly amazing 26th festival, which we were all incredibly proud of, we’ve made the very difficult decision that we and the festival need to take a year off in 2017 to fully refresh both creatively and personally. Larmer Tree Festival will return in 2018 with some new and exciting developments. We’ve confirmed the weekend of 20th-22nd July for the 2018 festival (exact dates to be announced) - a week later than normal, so get those dates in your diary.
We’d like to thank everyone for their constant support of Larmer Tree over the past 26 years, and we look forward to welcoming you on your return to the Gardens, when we can reassure you we'll be back with a bang! For now, we’ll start looking forward to 2018.
