We are very excited to announce that in Spring 2018 Outdoor People are teaming up with Sam Lee’s Nest Collective and Green Farm Kent at this year's Singing With Nightingales - one of the most original and captivating musical events of the year. It’s a spellbinding night of fireside folk music celebrating the lyrical magic of the nightingale... a unique chance to enjoy birdsong and folklore deep in one of England’s most beautiful woodland spots.
There is a magical line up of talent every weekend from 28th April until 26th May, including Japanese flautists, traditional folk singers and blues guitarists... something for every taste and every evening a treat.
See the line up here.
As the event finishes late, we’re offering a special camping experience, so you can talk or sing into the night, sleep late and put off that jarring return to the modern world. The camping experience includes the option of a morning woodland walk, yoga or meditation session and a delicious breakfast cooked over a roaring fire. Tent hire costs £100 for two people (or £80 for single occupancy) and includes:
- A classic 3 person Vango Force Ten canvas tent, thick sleeping mat, duvets and pillows*, plus a solar powered lamp
- Morning woodland walks, yoga or meditation session (optional if you want to sleep in!)
- A chance to listen to the dawn chorus, plus a delicious breakfast cooked over a roaring fire.
The campsite is situated beside the Green Farm community garden, has a hot shower and toilet nearby and is just a two-minute walk from the woodland concert site. There's a kitchen hut and communal bell tent for shelter if it's raining.
