Wildchild Festival returns to Wolseley this August

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust’s popular Wildchild Festival is to make a return to its Wolseley Centre headquarters this August to celebrate the magical world of art and nature.

The festival – the Trust’s highlight event during the year for families, which thousands of people attended in 2019, was cancelled last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

But Trust staff have been busily planning its return this year and the festival will return in a different guise in August – with nature themed events and activities taking place throughout the month instead of on one day.

From art trails to theatre performances, there will be plenty going on during the month for families to attend and enjoy.

The Fabularium Theatre Group will be returning with a brand-new show and The Bird in the Hand Theatre will be bringing back their Bewonderment Machine.

There will also be a ‘Festival at Home’ pack to download and enjoy at home. The pack will be full of ideas and creations to turn your festival at home into a magical experience. The Trust will be encouraging families to hold their festival on 4th August and share festival photos on social media.

Aimee Burrows, Senior Wildchild Officer for the Trust, said: “We’re delighted to be bringing our Wildchild Festival back to Wolseley this year.

“So we can remain Covid-19 compliant and keep people safe attending the event, we have spread the events out throughout the month rather than hold it on one day.

“It promises to be an extremely fun month with lots going on for families throughout August.

“New additions to the festival will be added during July too, so keep checking back for news and event updates.”
