What is the Festival of Wonder?

The Festival of Wonder is a festival offering a wondrous array of spectacles, activities and spaces designed to engage, enrich and inspire wonder. There’s music, drama, comedy and circus performance, workshops, sounds, silence and reflective space, as well as food, warmth and community.

The majority of events and activities are FREE
to attend and open to all ages.

This year we will explore our understanding of wonder in powerful new ways and, in particular, consider the thin veil that seems to exist between our experiences and our hopes and dreams. Can we break through the veil and experience a ‘more beautiful world that our hearts know is possible’.

So, whether you enjoy the wonder of the natural world, the wonder of words, imagination, creativity, song or dance we hope you will find something to again brighten, lighten and inspire.

What makes you wonder?
What stops you in your tracks in a moment of WOW? What sparks your imagination to run and spurs you to act? Whether it’s community or justice, music or art, beauty or magic, sounds or silence, the Festival of Wonder invites you to step back take time and wonder.

Get Involved
Keeping our Festival as accessible as possible to all means we rely on a combination of generous donations and an incredible team of volunteers to make everything happen.
