The Good Life Experience is a weekend long interactive guide to living The Good Life and is all about with things that really matter, not just for one long, idyllic weekend in Wales, but for ever.

Set on the Hawarden Estate of 19th century Prime Minister William Gladstone, the Good Life Experience festival is the brainchild of broadcaster and performer Cerys Matthews and husband Steve Abbott, along with farmers and authors Charlie and Caroline Gladstone. Its broad remit is to help people go in search of the good life, but this loosely translates to them delivering music, food and drink, authors, workshops and plenty of chances for outdoor exploration.

World famous chefs will all cook over a campfire, there will be raucous music, poetry and inspirational speakers. There will be axe throwing, archery, fire walking, leather-working, bushcraft, great food and drink, dancing and loads more. Caught by the River, The Idler and The Dylan Thomas Mobile Bookshop will be there, along with a whole host of brilliant brands in our Market Place.

As in previous years, there will be no backstage area and no VIP tent; all of the performers will be there because they want to and are happy to meet the guests.
