About

Join Bear Grylls at the Gone Wild Festival on August Bank Holiday 2021. This new, action packed family festival is set to take place in the sweeping grounds of Powderham Castle, just outside Exeter.

Having explored the world and fostered a love of outdoor activities, Bear has co-designed a festival to give those with a thirst for excitement the ultimate family adventure. The festival schedule is packed with a range of fun activities, including kayaking on the Exe Estuary, Be Military Fit family group workouts, a purpose built obstacle course, abseiling and climbing. Expert instructors from the Bear Grylls Survival Academy will teach children and adults essential survival skills such as shelter building, fire lighting and campfire cooking.

The music stages will be headlined by a brilliant line up, including Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight and the Ministry of Sound Orchestra.

As the sun goes down over the castle, festival goers will be able to eat delicious locally sourced food from some of the finest chefs and street food vendors from across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. Then they can dance the night away to live music and DJs, laugh with well-known comedians, and share stories around the campfire.

“After a difficult year for so many people around the world, Gone Wild is the perfect event for families to experience adventures together at the stunning Powderham Castle, in Devon. I can’t wait to join everyone for a weekend of fun, great activities and making memories together. This is going to be so good!” - Bear Grylls
