STARRY SKIES – WHERE THE KIDS ROAM FREE – 5-9th AUGUST 2020.
If Shambala were to have a baby with a proper family camping holiday, that baby would be Starry Skies – our little sister, families only event! Now in it’s 8th year, Starry Skies takes place on a beautiful family farm in the Welsh village of Usk, complete with rolling meadows, ancient woodlands and even an iron age fort, the perfect setting for four days of freedom and adventure.
Starry Skies’ magic is it’s intimacy, so you can relax in the knowledge that your kids are never too far away. It’s teeny size does mean tickets are very limited, and are currently at nearly 75% gone so if this sounds like your family’s cup of tea, we’d recommend booking your spot quick smart.
Adult tickets can be bagged for just a £50 deposit, with the rest paid off as and when it suits, ahead of the payment deadline of June 1st. Check out all our ticket types (and book your family’s spot) HERE.

EXPECT A WHOLE RAFT OF SHAMBALA FAMILY FAVOURITES…
We’ve got the legendary Shambala instution that is The Woodland Tribe, where kids (and their grown ups) can build their own treehouse adventure playground using hammers and saws
Kids that dream of joining the circus will love BigTopMania’s trapeze and aerial workshops, anarchic acrobatics, giant bouncing balls and crazy bikes.
The amazing Super Pirates are setting sail for Starry Skies with their rip-roaring high-seas high-jinx for kids and adults alike, with giant inflatables rocking dance offs, group games, sensory play and barrels of toys.
Dancing shoes required for the legendary family rave, flashmob and fancy dress disco – as well as a stonking selection of live bands, all housed in our beautiful barn!
And just like Shambala, we’ve got campfire singalongs and cocoa before bed – as well as baby baths to get your littlest ones squeaky clean before they turn in.
AS WELL AS HEAPS OF HANDS-ON, BACK TO NATURE ACTIVITIES & ADVENTURES!
Pony grooming? Check! A whole hoot of owls? Absolutely! Daily Forest School sessions for all ages? Yep. An absolutely huge waterslide? You betcha.
We’ve also got den building, arts and crafts, archery, wood working, the Starry Skies olympics, yoga for all ages and a dazzling array of workshops and activities – and yes, they’re all included in the ticket price. Check out the line up so far (with so much more to come, HERE).
Last year, our older campers even tested their mettle by leaping through fire – an incredible confidence building experience that the Guardian covered – read all about it HERE.
All activities on offer at Starry Skies have been chosen specifically to encourage both children and adults to appreciate and develop a connection to the natural world. In short, it’s about swapping minecraft for bushcraft, and screen time for family time!
WHAT’S IN IT FOR THE GROWN UPS?!
Whilst watching your kids tear off into the woods or scale trees is a joy in itself, this is a holiday for *all* the family, so adults have more than enough to keep them occupied too – whether it’s with an espresso martini or mindfulness and meditation!
Get stuck into wine tasting sessions, dance to wicked live bands, try your hand at archery, foraging workshops and yoga classes, have a natter round the campfire with likeminded folk or just kick back and bliss out in the barn bar, with a good book and something delicious from our indoor food market.
