August events: Lost Village Festival
Norton Disney, Lincolnshire
Take a trip into the surreal landscape of large-scale, interactive theatre performance art. In the woods. With DJs.
Picture a crowd of painted faces and flowy, pagan garb. Pepper the crowd with a large, anonymous cast of professional actors in costume. Set that scene in a verdant summer woodland, on a lake, surrounded by rickety cabins. Then, add campsites and stages for music and comedy, bars, and delicious food, and you have Lincolnshire’s Lost Village Festival.
The Lost Village Festival is an immersive theatre experience that encourages improvisational interactions between festival-goers and paid thespians. The story underpinning the show is that of a village lost in time whose inhabitants add an element of the surreal to more traditional festival performances. Camp in style with a boutique experience in Lost Village's tranquil glade and book a session in the on-site spa for the ultimate festival getaway.
