Diverse, colourful and easy-going

Wilderness brings its diverse, colourful and easy-going party to the lush woodland of Cornbury Park, part of Oxfordshire's beautiful nature reserves.

Looking to strike a balance between 'relaxation and revelry', Wilderness is all about escapism and creative freedom, and is evident across its site: think a eclectic musical lineup, immersive games, woodland theatre, a lakeside spa, paddle yoga, workshops and an endless programme of thought-provoking talks and debates. 

All held in a secluded, natural setting, Wilderness is the perfect weekend to escape the daily grind and immerse yourself in a world flourishing with creativity.
