Wide Skies & Butterflies is a brand new UK festival coming to Norfolk’s beautiful Raynham Estate in August 2022.
The festival’s name gives a shout-out to the big wide-open skies of Norfolk that have inspired poets and artists for centuries. And the Swallowtail butterfly – seen in their logo – is native to Norfolk, and is said to represent life, hope, endurance, change, and the grace and free nature of the ineffable human soul.
And the organisers believe that sums up the festival perfectly. Wide Skies & Butterflies will be a festival all about music, family, inclusivity, joy, and inspiration. It’ll be a safe place where people can come together to embrace and celebrate what they each bring to the world.

The beautiful 17th Century Hall will provide the perfect backdrop for Norfolk’s newest festival, and looking out over the estate and lake the view is completely free from any sign of modern infrastructure as far as the eye can see.
So if you’d love a festival with a strong 90’s vibe, where you can enjoy a diverse range of live music from big names and local bands, dancing, local food and culture, comedy, the arts, equality, pride, camping, glamping, and safe activities for the kids, then Wide Skies & Butterflies is the festival for you.
