Described as “A wonderful festival… like a smaller, friendlier Glastonbury”, The Temple House Festival promises to be a little bit different and provide a relaxed chilled out atmosphere in idyllic surroundings, which will captivate and enthral anyone who attends. Live music will be complemented by a unique arts trail, a path embedded in the stunning natural setting of the Temple House woods, and encounter a world filled with the kooky, colourful, weird and wonderful.
