The Anthropos Festival will take over a site at Bygrave Plantation, Newnham, from Thursday, June 13 to Monday, June 17.

Creatives invite you to the lush woodland and rolling green fields near Baldock, out into nature, to re-wire yourself.

Featuring a green, environmentally-conscious, 100 per cent vegan policy, the volunteer-run festival will feature stunning visual art, diverse electronic beats and live acts.

Visitors will be welcomed by a variety of arts spaces, workshops, yoga spaces, lectures, tai chi, a healing area, saunas, spas, plant-based food offerings and an extensive programme of discerning electronic music.

Added to this is a stage featuring a variety of local bands, singer/songwriters and world music.

A festival spokesman said: "We're not just a music festival, there are so many other focuses that we are highlighting which often fall behind when you want to catch your favourite act.

"So we've programmed two days without music to enable you to really explore the different workshops and lectures as well as getting creative in the art spaces with materials provided.

"A lot of people enjoy festivals in a vacuum. They attend the event and then leave back to their lives like a bubble of experience but we want to have the joy and positive effects of a festival experience that is integrated into people's lives not being separate.

"So this is done by incorporating a period of reflection and personal development to take back to their lives and not just a weekend of catharsis."

Organisers also encourage lift sharing and are offsetting the carbon emissions with donations to Energy Revolution, a charity directly investing in renewable energy. For every festival ticket sold, Anthropos - which means human in Greek - will also plant a tree in your name.

If you fancy going, we've teamed up with organisers for the chance to win the following prizes:

● Dual ticket (entry for two) to Anthropos Festival, handmade Anthropos T-shirt and 2 food vouchers.
