The rise of the small festival means that whatever your taste – literary, eco, dancy, folky, family or foodie – there’s a festival out there for you. Here are a few Resurgence favourites.

Sunrise Celebration: Billed as the Festival of Organic Arts and Culture, this is known for its “organically-grown good vibes” and a commitment to following an ethical and environ-mental path.

Larmer Tree Festival: Described by those in the know as “the best kept secret”, this is an intimate gathering of like-minded folk held at the lush Larmer Tree Gardens near Salisbury.
