The Village Green

Head to the eccentric Village Green to experience the best new outdoor performance for families including Matthew Harrison’s The Actual Reality Arcade – a life-sized interactive game zone for all ages, inspired by classic arcade games. Keep your eyes peeled for Baba Yaga’s House by contemporary circus and theatre company Dizzy O’Dare – a ramshackle old cottage which roams the land on chicken legs while Baba flies in her giant pestle and mortar – she might tell your fortune, or then again she might just eat you. See new show The Jukeboxes from Bootworks Theatre and meet Wilford, a rockabilly tree planting anarch-nomad in Seed, the brand new show from Pif-Paf. Head to the new, glorious Games Tent, do a spot of Maypole dancing and hone your circus skills on the Green too. Visit the special Just So Post Office - send a letter to a new pen pal at Just So Brazil or Just So New Zealand. The Village Green is also the nerve centre of the Tribal Tournament and where festivalgoers can encounter a sports day with a difference - pillow fighting anyone? Throughout the festival join the Bee, Fox, Frog, Owl, Fish, Stag or Lion tribes to compete in ridiculous games and all manner of unexpected shenanigans to earn coveted golden pebbles and be crowned the winning tribe. Find your tribe on festival Sunday and take part in the Tribal Parade, a Just So highlight.
