Rowan and Sarah set up Just So Festival in 2009, to create an amazing, spellbinding weekend where families could play, dance and create together and see breathtaking theatre, dance and music. Just So couldn’t happen without a quite amazing team of people. Jen and Cathryn now work with us all year round, and we’re joined by a wonderful creative bunch of staff and volunteers during the summer.

The Just So Festival is an annual weekend-long camping festival for children and their families. The festival provides a magical experience where art, music and literature are embedded and entwined in a beautiful and wonderous landscape. We provide a broad range of musical, theatrical, and visual performances, workshops and installations within a safe, natural and magical setting. Every clearing and glade holds a new way to unleash creativity. Families discover and delight in the spectacular within the woodland environment during this weekend camping event.

We work on the festival year round from our horsebox office, Fleur, in the Whirligig, a woodland on the festival site. You can read about our adventures at the Whirligig here.
