What we love about this festival.

The organisers truly care about what your experience is like over the weekend. The events are meticulously curated and there is a thoughtful guide for Just So first- timers on their website, which would be equally useful to any festival first-timer.

Camping and Glamping Options

Camping is in the beautiful parkland of Rode Hall Estate. There is a family camping area, with nice loos not too far away from the main arena. Glamping options are also on offer in the form of belle tents, tipis and yurts. The added bonus is that the boutique camping area is very close to the car park.

Past lineups

Skinny Lister, Hope & Social, Curtis Ellen's American Circus, Baghdaddies, Seas of Mirths, Patch & The Giants, Long Nose Puppets, Arthur's Dream Boat, Cut A Shine.

Kids and families

Just So is enormously accommodating of families and little ones. There are baby changing tents with changing mats and wipes and also a breast-feeding boudoir, bottle warm and steriliser zone. There's also loads going on for kids such as dressing up, children's authors and a festival choir, aside from all of the Just So traditions which are centred around families.

A touch of luxury

Losing yourself in a fantasy world of happiness and fun for the weekend is the best therapy you can get!

Just So Festival

Just So describe their festival as "a family weekend adventure beyond your wildest dreams", and on this they certainly deliver. This festival offers a captivating mix of music, arts, literature and tribal games reminiscent of Hogwarts. For you and your little ones Just So is like an eccentric journey back in time, providing you with all the creativity you need to set your imaginations on fire.

There are several different areas in the arena, each offering their share of spectacles, arts and interactive workshops. The Village Green must not be missed, with it's ridiculously fun knitting, toddler jousting and lots of homemade cake! There's also, story-telling, theatre performances and workshops, a Just So bake-off, a midnight feast, pillow fight and even a sports day. It really has everything to transport you to another joyous world for the weekend. And if all that whets your appetite, imagine how much your kids will love it!

A huge Just So tradition is the Tribal Tournament with Fish, Frog, Fox, Owl, Lion or Stag tribes. Each festival-goer belongs to a tribe and expect plenty of healthy competition throughout the weekend.

Music isn't neglected. Despite this vast array of alternative offerings, Just So offers the chance to discover some new and smaller bands and perhaps even introduce you to some different music styles.


Music acts confirmed so far for 2017 include: Laura Oakes; Bramble Napskins; Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band; The Baghdaddies; and Cut A Shine.
