We love making new friends and we’re so happy to be celebrating WILDSIDE FEST 2019 with these chums.

Not only are our friends supporting local wildlife, they’re helping others get closer to their own wildside which we know is great for the heart, body and mind. So without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to our friends, buddies and besties!

Oh, and we know friends come in all shapes and sizes so if you fancy getting to know each other and supporting WILDSIDE FESTIVAL, click here.


Best Friends of the festival


Neighbours can make the best friends and when you’ve got a neighbour like WELEDA you know there’s wild times ahead. A stones throw from the festival lies WELEDA’s medicinal plant garden; vibrant with colour and humming with pollinators. It’s a fab space for connecting people and nature. These guys are committed to the well-being of our planet, our environment and our people. Catch them at WILDSIDE 2019!

Brimming with talent and world class facilities, our local University were destined to become best friends of WILDSIDE. We’re super excited about working with the university and their students on some wild projects which they’ll be bringing to the festival.


Buddies of the festival


As well as providing IT Support for Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Absolute Networks are showing their wildside by supporting our festival too! Their support means we’re able to do more for wildlife, right now. That’s amazing.


With their distillery nestled on the bank of the Derwent and backing on to Shining Cliff Woods, the guys at WPD are already well connected to their wildside. We’re so excited to have them as our exclusive gin provider; a gin enhanced by Derbyshire botanicals. Catch them at the Bird Bath bar!
