IMPORTANT 2021 Announcement: Dear Trew Fields community, we’ve missed connecting with you! We recognise the huge challenges the past year has brought, and the impact on the cancer community. As we move into the start of Spring and a year since lockdown began, we’re sending you energising thoughts and support at this time of renewal.
In other news – an update on the planning application to erect a Hydrocarbon drilling site just meters away from the camping area at Thatched House Farm, where we hold the festival. Thankfully the application was rejected in Nov 2020. Since then UK Oil and Gas (UKOG) have filed an appeal which is to be considered April 2021. We hope that the councillors see sense and refuse the appeal again. As a community who have spent many incredible summers on the farm, it would be devastating to consider that a 37m tall drilling site be built within 100m of the cap site and the future of health events on the farm be put in jeopardy.
Trew Fields is a festival like no other. It’s an intimate gathering on a beautiful farm where the atmosphere’s ‘like walking into a giant hug.’ It’s a place for connection, community building and collaboration for healthy change. Enjoy over 80 inspiring talks, health workshops, music, massages and play.
Bringing together world-renowned cancer experts, holistic health teachers, storytellers, health professionals and those living well with & beyond cancer.
The weekend is curated to educate, empower, uplift and connect. We aim to inspire greater health, hosting educational conversations, open debates & first-hand experiences. With woodland workshops, ice baths, massages, yoga, arts & crafts, silent discos, meditation, Storytelling, live fermentation workshops & MUCH more for all the family!
Our aim is to create a more progressive & hope-filled, fun-packed event around illness, prevention & integrative medicine. It’s all about health and wellbeing – with a special zone for cancer awareness. Trew Fields helps to re-frame the mainstream narrative surrounding illness into one of proactivity.
TF is a movement for positive social & environmental change. A gathering for the whole family, it’s welcoming and inclusive for all ages, circumstances and experiences.
Whether you’re curiously dipping your toes in the holistic health world or are a seasoned explorer, we’ll welcome you with open arms.
See you in the field.

“Trew Fields was a heaven on earth. It broke new ground in raising awareness for the integrated side of cancer. The day was filled with amazing vegan food, motivational speakers, health experts, music, circus performers, yoga, meditation & fun.”
“Trew Fields was such an important and joyful event in my life and healing process. It brought so much emotional relief, and I learnt so much. In the days before coming I felt very tired and weak after radiotherapy. I travelled from the Netherlands to attend.
After the festival I was full of hope and energy, I felt I was healing. Since then, I’ve been better and on the last scan everything was stable. It was the first positive scan since I found out I had stage 4 cancer. The festival really was the turning point. I feel very grateful to you.”
“An inspiring, empowering festival – all about learning, education, healing and sharing happy memories with those you love.”
