Good Life Experience 2018 Overview
The Good Life Experience intends to be a celebration of artists and artisans, debates and discovery, action and adventure, rock and roll revelry and relaxation, family fun and feasts and carnival and culture. The Good Life Experience takes place in the glorious, unusual, historic and setting of the Hawarden Estate against the backdrop of two castles.
The founders’ curious and explorative minds and collective experience of late nights and wild adventures has resulted in a truly unique festival. Expect raucous music from all over the world curated by Cerys, axe throwing, foraging, campfire cooking sessions with world class chefs, daily feasts, wild children, mass sing-a-longs, over 40 expert craftspeople, beer served by experts, talks by explorers, abseiling, a free 1930s fairground, tree climbing, poetry, literature and endless How To… talks. Everything is aimed at adults and children alike; there aren’t many festivals that truly do that.
It’s an inclusive festival that celebrates friendship with open arms. Everyone who attends becomes part of The Good Life family and the festival aims to create experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. It’s also dog-friendly so the whole family is welcome.
