Just over a month to go until WILD 2020 – Our Home Ed Festival is running 21st September to 24th September.
Here’s the first peek at what’s on this year. This is still a work in progress and we have new and exciting workshops being added all the time. Drop us a message if there are any short talks, demos or sessions you would like to run. There are also still slots available if the young people in your family would like to share any of their skills and interests too.
Please do take a look through the attached pdf to see what we have in store each day. I would be very interested to hear back about the sessions that you are super excited about. We are soon going to be booking places for each workshop or activity in advance of coming to the event. I appreciate that this is a change from usual, we think that this will be the easiest way to avoid a crush at the sign up boards with people getting too close together. I know that there will be changes each day but on the whole this will help make it a really chilled out event where you can relax knowing what you’ll be doing each day.
You may be a little anxious about social distancing, perhaps you might like to take a look at some of the measures that the campsite has in place to keep everyone safe and healthy. We will be following our, now well practiced, sanitising and distancing strategies for each of the bushcraft sessions. Our Activity leaders have all done risk assessments too and you’ll see that some classes are smaller to make this easy for them too.
Where classes are very popular we will attempt to run additional sessions so that everyone can have a go at the things they are interested in.
It would be fabulous if you would be able to share the word about the festival and invite your friends to come along too. We have young people of all ages joining us and I’m sure you’ll leave with even more friends. If you know of folks who are coming but haven’t yet bought tickets, would you mind asking them to drop us an email so that we can include them in our planning?
If you have any questions please do get in touch at email@example.com and we will be happy to help.
So for now we wish you all the best and hope that you are all well and looking forward to WILD 2020.
See you soon.
Hannah, Steve, Leas and the Really Wild Team
