The Good Life X The Frome Independent

We are very excited to have our friends from The Good Life Experience with us at our June Market!

Founded by Cerys Matthews, Steve Abbot and Charlie & Caroline Gladstone in 2014, for those of you who are yet to discover this magical little festival, you’re in for a treat! The Good Life Experience is held within the grounds of two historic castles, beautiful gardens and a private nature reserve on the Harwarden Estate in Flintshire, North Wales. As well as live music, DJs, talks and workshops, you can also swim in the lake, forage in the woodlands, feast around the campfire. 

“I wanted something for people like me, curious types, where it’s what you’re doing with your hands and what you’re doing with your brain that matters.” Cerys Matthews, The Good Life Experience Co-Founder

Here’s a word from our friends at team Good Life…

“The Good Life Experience aims to bring you the good stuff. We have world-famous chefs cooking around a campfire One-of-a-kind feasts in a beautiful 1920’s cricket pavilion or a beautiful victorian greenhouse Workshops with some of the best makers in the country.
