Bear Grylls is coming to Powderham Castle with a family friendly ‘Gone Wild Festival’ for August bank holiday 2021.

With his signature love of outdoor activities and exploration, Bear’s festival promises to give those of us with a thirst for excitement the ‘ultimate family adventure’.  The festival program promises a range of family activities, including kayaking on the Exe Estuary, Be Military Fit family group workouts, a purpose-built obstacle course, abseiling and climbing. And for the full Bear Grylls experience, expert instructors will teach our children and us adults essential survival skills such as shelter building, fire lighting and campfire cooking.

When we are done with wall-to-wall action (and perhaps, hopefully finally tired the kids out a bit too), the music stage lineups including Kaiser Chiefs, Razorlight and the Ministry of Sound Orchestra.

Campfires and comedians, live music and DJs, locally sourced food from some of the finest chefs and street food vendors from across the south west, all promise to make it a memorable weekend.

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!
