Magic Stones

Here at Festival8, we like to expand our senses. So this year we are offering an unique opportunity to use sight. Starting on Friday painted stones will be hidden around the site. If you look you will see. They may be in the toilet block, on the stage, in the woods, in the restaurant area, in the playhouses, balancing on a post. However, they will not be in any restricted area, or under something, or in a dangerous to get to position. On Saturday we are throwing this open just to the young ones. That's right a giant hide

Sunday Assembly

Last year this was for some people the most amazing thing they did all weekend.  We had laughter, tears, joy, games and some great music...... if you'd love to celebr8 life then this is worth getting up for. Life, its incredible when you stop to think of it.  Your chance of being here is infinitesimally small, yet here you are in all your unique glory.  There isn't another you and the likelihood of their being another is even smaller than the chance of you being here at all. In the busyness of our lives it's easy to get caught

Art Installations 2017

Deep in the heart of Texas - which looks and smells like North Shields when the wind blows from a certain direction - Rob Walton and Russ Coleman are busy.  They are busy making words for the wonderful North Lincolnshire festival-goers.   These words, painted on boards, will be offered to you lovely folk to arrange in the air.  Make beautiful poetry.  Write utter nonsense.  Put the words together and create a haiku, or a sentence or a message to a loved one.  But mostly – have fun. The art installation will be around the Woodland Walk or Woodland stage.
