Bake off and camp­fire sto­ries will light up suc­cess­ful fes­ti­val

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

THE award-win­ning Just So Fes­ti­val has un­veiled an ex­cit­ing pro­gramme for 2016.

The week­end-long camp­ing fes­ti­val was set up by Rowan Hoban and Sarah Bird, from Mac­cles­field, who wanted to pro­duce large scale arts event where fam­i­lies could be im­mersed in in­cred­i­ble sto­ries and en­ter­tain­ment, and ex­pe­ri­ence out­door arts.

Based in North Rode, it was awarded Best Fes­ti­val in 2015 by the Na­tional Out­door Events As­so­ci­a­tion and is the only com­bined arts fes­ti­val ded­i­cated solely to fam­i­lies in the UK.

This year’s event runs over the week­end be­gin­ning 19 Au­gust.

As well as the usual mix of mu­sic, theatre and dance events, there will be a new im­mer­sive dance show ‘Around the World in 80 Notes’.

There will also be a spe­cial Just So Bake Off, per­for­mance from Jaes Camp­bell and Hand­made Theatre, and camp­fire sto­ries with Ian Dou­glas.

Rowan said: “At Just So 2016, au­di­ence mem­bers will be jour­ney­ing through the most mag­i­cal, awe-in­spir­ing land­scape for three nights.”
