2012 New Media Dreamspace

New for 2012, Larmer Tree Festival is very excited to have teamed up with Salisbury Arts Centre and their creative team to bring the Media Dreamspace to this year’s festival.

Designed to inspire creativity, this is a chance for festival-goers to immerse themselves in a media dream world, with filmmaking, animation, broadcasting and much more. Located near the Flag Circle in The Village, there’ll be a packed programme of drop-in workshops and interactive performances, which will enable people to explore a world of imagination through media tools, get hands on with high-tech gadgets or join the Roving Reporter team.

Julia Safe, Co-Director of Lamer Tree Festival, said: “We have a great, longstanding relationship with Salisbury Arts Centre including most recently having programmed the music for their Acoustic Cafe gigs. And, now we’re extremely pleased to be welcoming their creative team to Larmer Tree for the first time, it promises to be a brilliant hotbed of media activity - we can’t wait to drop by and see what’s going on!”

The Media Dreamspace Tent will be open from 12pm to 6pm on Thursday to Sunday and will feature things to divert people’s attention for a few minutes and others to keep them amused for hours. There’s something for all ages and abilities to get involved in. There will also be a video diary booth for festival-goers to share their Larmer Tree experiences, and screenings of all the footage and material being generated as fast as the onsite media monkeys can edit it ready for projection.


Tickets range from £24 for a Child's Thursday ticket right up tp £190 for a 5 day adult ticket.
