Step into an incredible weekend festival of celebration, debate and reflection in the National Forest. Timber invites you to stand up and be counted as we rethink our relationship with trees and forests.
3 DAYS OF MUSIC, FORESTS, ART, IDEAS
Join new thinkers as they challenge us to re-examine our relationship with the natural world. Gather with artists, musicians and writers, as they respond and react to the forest in bold and exhilarating ways. Activists and makers will invite you to join them in a joyous celebration of nature. The rebels and the unexpected from the worlds of music, art, performance and wellbeing will play, provoke and inspire as we change the world.
So come on in, unplug, walk in among the trees and fall under Timber’s spell. Recharge under the leaves. It’s good for the soul. To find out more about this festival, please see the TImber website

Why volunteer with Wicked at Timber Festival
Such a magical festival set in the most idyllic scenery. I loved working with the Wicked team and getting to meet new people.
I was on the litter picking team and couldn’t believe how tidy it was everywhere. The enviroment is one of my biggest concerns and it was so awesome to see how many other people were taking recycling seriously.
Thank you Wicked for making my time at Timber Festival so special and welcoming. I wanted to come but my friends couldn’t attend, so decided to volunteer. I’m so glad I did and can’t wait to see you all again next year.
