Gone Wild Festival with Bear Grylls

Bear Grylls’ Gone Wild Festival is coming to Holkham in 2024!

Plan your ultimate summer break right here in Holkham Park and embark on an extraordinary family adventure at the UK’s fastest-growing family festival.

Join Bear Grylls for four action-packed days camping beneath open skies, enjoy over 100 outdoor activities, inspirational speakers and live performances featuring headliners Example, Sam Ryder and McFly, supported by Scouting for Girls, Dick & Dom, The Cuban Brothers and Reef.

Plus, you’ll be able to hear from inspiring speakers including Bear Grylls, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Joe Marler and Helen Jenkins MBE.

 

What is Gone Wild Festival?

Co-founded by Bear Grylls, and former Royal Marine Officer Oli Mason, the festivals will provide action-packed adventure, rewilding and live music over four days, delivering incredible experiences with over 100 activities included in the ticket price. These range from archery, abseiling, survival skills, axe and spear throwing, to tree climbing, break dance workshops, foraging walks, shelter construction, raft building, rock climbing, wild swimming and SUP experiences.

Providing an unforgettable and affordable escape, where families can spend time together in the great outdoors, the festivals are expected to sell out quickly. With a focus on camping, getting back to nature, participating in wild adventures and challenges, including conquering the legendary Gone Wild commando course, the festivals promise action-packed activities from day one.

“Our goal is to get families spending time together in the outdoors. There’s a reason Gone Wild is the UK’s fastest growing family festival. Where else can you learn how to light fires, go climbing, throw your mum down a 50-foot mud slide, then party together while watching great bands?” Bear Grylls

 

 

Accommodation

Gone Wild Norfolk will be offering pre-pitched Bell Tents, Tipis, and Luxury Yurts, as well as pre-pitched tents so that visitors can travel light and enjoy the camping experience without the worry of space in the car, or for those travelling to Holkham by public transport. A range of pitches will also be available for motorhomes, and caravans, plus park and pitch options for campers.

Day tickets are now sold out and weekend tickets are limited.

Tickets are on sale through the Gone Wild website, but hurry as only 5,000 are available. (Interest-free payment plans are available.)

More information

Our family-friendly site is perfect to allow the children some freedom as they dive head first into nature and adventure, whilst you enjoy making unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime in our glorious setting.

Get ready to dance like nobody’s watching! The festival promises to deliver world-class entertainment over the 4-day weekend.

If there’s one word that doesn’t exist here, it’s boredom. The kids (and adults alike!) will be entertained all weekend long with activities catering to all ages and tastes! From adrenaline-pumping climbs, jumps and assault courses, to survival skills and learning about nature. Add this to the displays, educational talks and all the different workshops on offer and you won’t hear ‘I’m bored’ at Gone Wild!

Camping is included in the 4 day ticket price, so you don’t have to worry about extra costs for pitching up. We also have camping extras available if you want to upgrade your stay, with brand new options like pre-pitched and bell tents for 2024 now on sale too. 

Sip, savour, and socialise in our delightful food and drink areas.

It’s not just about the music; it’s about the camaraderie. Reconnect with friends, make new ones, and make memories.

And the best part? At Holkham, we’re surrounded by stunning countryside, so you can unwind with beautiful hikes, and yoga sessions, or simply relax at camp with a book. Reconnect with nature and rediscover your inner peace.
