Just come back from another amazing adventure in a secret forest. (Thank you to our hosts, Awesome Campouts!)
The photo above shows our group just settling down to listen. By the time we finished it was so dark you could only see the dark shapes of branches, the half-moon glinting through the leaves and my face in the flickering torchlight.
We’re Londoners but there are plenty of tucked-away woodland corners within the M25 that are quite big enough to wander in. The all-encompassing darkness and beauty of the forest at night makes it easy to lose yourself in the magical worlds of a story and to sense the otherworlds nudging at our own. Our companions were sleek young foxes, fat happy field mice, magpies, ravens and owls. The trees seemed to gather closer as it got dark, almost as if they were listening too.
If you want to get lost in the forest with us, we’re going to have another woodland adventure in a stunning secret location on July 16th. Click here for info and tickets.
