The Good Life Experiment


We’ve listened to you. And we agree.

The Good Life Experience should stay small, and it should still offer everyone all the same things - a friendly atmosphere, interaction with chefs, speakers, musicians and makers, and have no VIP area. There’s no way we could keep that if we grew and grew.

But that doesn't mean we're staying exactly the same...

We’ve always been different. And celebrate the fact that dogs are allowed all weekend, most of our workshops are free to join and children under 12 go free (when you buy Super Early Bird Tickets).

Our unique blend of music, food, craft, ideas and The Great Outdoors has always been open to all, and over the past five years we have encouraged thousands of you to have a go, and get stuck in.

You have supported us every step of the way in these five years. And The Good Life Experiment (our new 3-Night Ticket option) is our way of saying thank you for joining us on the journey.

Yes, we're a festival. But that doesn’t have to mean monumental crowds or endless queues for dirty loos. It can be a more relaxed and intimate way to spend a long weekend. A weekend spent doing all the things you love at your own pace.

The extra day & night (Thursday) will be for small numbers and include special access to feasts, both castles, garden, pavilion, outdoor activities, speakers, workshops and music chosen by Cerys.

Everyone else with 2-night tickets will join around 2pm on Friday for a weekend of discovery, adventure and fun! All are welcome to stay until Monday morning.

Here's how our new, improved ticket structure works. Choose the tickets that best suit you.
