Wildchild Festival Badger
50th Anniversary

There are going to be lots of family wildlife activities on the day; fun games, entertainment from the Fabularium theatre group, listen to the tales of the travelling storyteller, try tasty festival food and drink, plus lots more…

Step inside The Oakmobile. Be wowed by the adventures of Reynard the Fox in an open air theatre. Watch The Storyteller pedal his bow top caravan before settling down to listen to his stories. These are just some of the immersive treats we have lined up for you at our party.

Events and spectacles will be spread across the whole of our 26 acre nature reserve;  in the meadow, beside the lake and on our beautiful Park Bank.

Spectacular things to see and do!

Special highlights!

Here are some of the highlights from our WildChild Festival that you won’t want to miss!

Reynard the Fox

Reynard The Fox

A theatre performance by The Fabularium Company. The tale of Reynard the Fox follows the woodlands most infamous scoundrel who prides himself on being the trickster of the forest.

The Oakmobile

The Oakmobile Experience

The Oakmobile is a magical, mobile micro-theatre. On the outside a gleaming aluminium acorn shell. And, surprisingly, inside a peaceful forest glade: full of the sights, smells and sounds of nature.

Travelling Storyteller

The Travelling Storyteller

Look out for The Travelling Storyteller with his pedal powered bow top caravan – wait for him to settle and tell you a tale or two.


Come along and take part in some of our workshops from printmaking to puppet making and also dancing!
