Photo Gallery: Family Fun at Just So Festival
Just So Festival, an annual festival for children and their families in Cheshire, took place last weekend. The festival provides oodles of art, music and literature events, embedded and entwined in fab woodland surroundings. With a broad range of musical, theatrical, visual performances, workshops and installations, it’s a must-do for families.
Just So is organised by Wild Rumpus who produce extraordinary worlds, most often in wild natural landscapes, and invite families to step inside and help to create incredible stories and moments of wonder. Alongside producing large-scale events, they work with performers, producers and programmers to shape a cultural environment where excellent outdoor work for families thrives. Wild Rumpus is based at the Whirligig, a four-acre woodland at Rode Hall in Cheshire.
