The wild, hilly estate of Pippingford Park, near Uckfield, is a perfect backdrop for the outdoor fun of Elderflower Fields, now in its eighth year. With views across Sussex healthland and ancient woods, there’s climbing, kayaking, trapeze sessions, free running and nature workshops – and a huge family picnic on the Sunday. The programme of kids-only activities, including arts and sports camps – plus onsite nannies – gives grownups time to check out the woodland spa or some of 40 acts announced so far for the three-day event, from high-energy ska to chilled hip-hop.
