The yurts come with a double wooden door, groundsheet and a circular carpet and you will need to provide your own bedding and teddies! I would suggest you bring head torches or, and battery lanterns and a good supply of Skin so Soft. We will require all the names of the occupants to the yurt(s),and once you have made payment in full, we will forward your names to the organizers, who will allocate your yurt, on your arrival to the Festival. The yurts are being snapped up very quickly so booking is advisable in advance

The Story of Marco the Silk Road Monkey

Coming once again this year to schools and festivals. A delightful story for young and old, told in the Yurt. The story tells the tale of Marco the Monkey who accompanies a merchant along the Silk Routes back to Venice. From the Palaces of Kublai Khan to the Bazaars of Persia this story is one of adventure and hidden dangers.
