Many thanks for your interest in joining us at this year’s Goren Festival and helping it to be the best yet. This will be the Festival’s 4th year. We are rapidly establishing a small, boutique and family-friendly festival on this active and busy farm. We want to encourage people to engage in the natural environment through education, play and music, and to go a bit wild in Goren Farm’s wild meadow. Our capacity is up to 1500 people and many of our visitors will be fairly local.
We have a Zero Waste policy, in keeping with the farm and festival’s ethos. We ask all attendees to support this by bringing as little packaging as possible, selling your services mindful of this policy (whilst also adhering to Health and Safety).
