Experience the moments!

A festival is more fun together. And together you create spontaneous moments and memories that remain a lifetime.

Just like photographs, Fantasy Forest is perfect for moving imagery. Besides our own after movie, many people film the wonderful time they spent with their friends at the festival.

“I loved this festival, it was such wonderful weekend! Many traders with beautiful wares, lots to see with amazing costumes of many different genres,and everyone was so friendly,a really relaxing chilled out time. The body art was sublime, the castle setting was perfect and the gardens are well worth a visit after 5. The bands were fabulous!! All the crew were helpful and smiling, and the camping was great with loos and showers! Lovely views from there too. Roll on next year as I’m sure this festival will get bigger and better each year”
