What you need to know

This eco-conscious event will be educational and community-oriented involving local and national fungi groups. We aim to cover Mushroom identification, cultivation, microscopy, medicinal mushrooms and topics such as the soil food web, composting & decomposition, permaculture, rewilding & ethical foraging. Most importantly, we will celebrate the people at the forefront of mycology in the UK and beyond.

Each day will start with the option of shamanic healing journeys. After a day packed full of myco-focused activities, we'll relax with live music and entertainment by the fire or at the secret woodland stage, or go and explore the fluorescent forest with UV torches. Whether you're new to fungi or an experienced mycologist there will be something for everyone. 

​The festival will take place in the picturesque Sussex countryside on the beautiful Chiddinglye estate surrounded by meadows, forests, and dark skies. The site plays host to many diverse species a section of which is listed as a site of scientific importance.(Triple SSSI)

We aim to tread lightly and play respectfully leaving no trace. 

T​o celebrate all things fungi we have invited some of the most influential mycologists, ecologists, citizen scientists  and nature enthusiasts to come and share their passion and experience. 

​For far too long, Fungi have been under appreciated and under-studied.  We feel it's time to give Fungi the attention and recognition they deserve.
