About this event

Barefoot Festival™ is a unique and intimate gathering of beautiful souls in the Leicestershire Countryside.

Held in the sumptious grounds of Prestwold Hall, close to Nottingham, Leicester and Loughborough, we pride ourselves on being a fun filled family friendly event with something for everyone!

We are in a new field this year with beautiful views of the Leicestershire countryside and a splendid sunset spot. We are super excited for some fresh vibes and an improved program.

From Burlesque to Hoola Hooping, we have a full line up of fantastic bands and musicians and our a famous Fire Show with fire breathers, body burners and flame spinners!

Children's entertainment is on all week end with Forest School and we have a dedicated Arts and Crafts tent with upcycling crafts, body art and so much more. The Bush Craft space is back this year too. 

If you want to unwind we are launching our Magic & Medicine Circle new for this year and we have a Sweat Lodge full experience and more to come. This is a full program of classes with every type of yoga you can think of, holistic and well being sessions.  

We have some of the most entertaining bands & muscians playing over the weekend in our band tent, see our website for a full published program.

We believe happy kids equal happy mums and dads! There is a bursting program for children with family yoga & movement workshops, dance activities and arts and crafts, parades and before bed time meditations, story telling, poetry, forest school activities and a communal campfire for roasting marshmallows under the stars.

We aim to totally blow your socks off!!

Barefoot and natural - you won't find big fancy sponsors and our set up revolves around simplicity and is getting back to basic.

Friday night is going to be absolutey amazing - it's a FULL MOON PARTY. We'll have a Family Rave hosted by Big Fish Little Fish in our Big Top followed by a dance party with podium style performers, aerial hoop and glow dancers!

We say at Barefoot Festival that the Headliner is you!

We encourage you to get involved by providing a comfortable and exciting space to try new things. We have beautiful venues for you Big Tops, Tipis, Yurts and Tents so whatever the British weather throws at us the show still goes on!

Join us for a weekend of getting back to the basics - we are Barefoot by name and Barefoot by nature - we aren't over commercialised and support small and local businesses and artisits and plough profits back into improving our event.
