We run forest school sessions, nature clubs and teach food growing in schools. The treehouse kids area at festival 8 will include a story telling tipi, a workshop shelter and a craft tent.

We had these workshops last year and the feedback was fantastic. People wanted more and we wanted to share it with more people too. This wonderful workshop will leaving you feeling great. There is no balancing or standing in weird postures for hours.

Late on the first night of our festival, for one night only, we will be hosting an extra-special burlesque cabaret sideshow by Lincolnshire’s premier burlesque show The Cat’s Pyjamas! This will be an over 18's only event and there will be plenty of other entertainment, if this isn't for you. We have kept to our aim of providing lots of different entertainment and providing quality that you would expect from a far larger festival. The Cat’s Pyjamas have been running left-field cabaret shows in the heart of Lincolnshire for nearly nine years now and have an excellent reputation for high-quality acts, eye-popping
You may have realised by now that Festival 8 is an interactive festival. We hope you will join in the fun. Part of joining in is dressing up. Dressing up helps to get in the party mood, it reminds you and everyone else that you are in a place out of the ordinary. We hope you will at least wear bright colours and perhaps a silly hat, but for many people, they will want to really get in the spirit and find a full costume. We are delighted to announce in partnership with Twinkles Fancy Dress of Cleethorpes. www.twinklesfancydress.com/ you
Festival 8's organisers know some lovely talented folk that have been very helpful in our first year of setting up this wonderful event. We saw one of the Geofest creative walkabouts and knew straight away we had to have them involved in the festival. Geofest will be on hand to work along side the Earthbound Misfits and be providing not only a giant feature for the parade but also some of their signature workshops and activities. GeoFest Collective are a group of Midlands based performers specialising in unique walkabout acts, varied workshops and energetic shows incorporating fire, glow and live music.'
While planning Festival 8 we decided an essential element, that we have seen work so well at other festivals, was to ensure we had both things for children and big kids to do, plus we wanted to have some interactive walkabout characters. Luckily for us, we have a very successful local company that offers all those services. The Earthbound misfits were written into our festival plan and we know that you will love interacting with them and joining in with their fun and games. The Earthbound Misfits are based in Lincolnshire and are a bespoke entertainments company. The Misfits were established
