Meet the Founders

Andrew and Ed have known each other for over 25 years having been to school together. In late 2022 on a cold winters night they met for a drink and came up with the plan of combining their passion of wellbeing, the outdoors and festivals to create “Wellness in the Wild”. 

About Andrew

Andrew is hugely passionate about both wellbeing and festivals. He has been meditating for over 10 years and is also a certified mindfulness teacher.

Additionally, for 12 years he ran a healthy food stall that travelled to music festivals such as Glastonbury, Latitude and Green Man festival. Festivals have been a big part of Andrew’s life which has now led him to set up his own.

“The festival is about bringing people together to celebrate health and wellness in nature. It gives individuals the opportunity to relax the body and mind in a beautiful setting and to take a pause from their busy lives.”

About Ed

Ed loves dancing in the woods and has always loved the vibrancy, atmosphere and pure joy found at festivals across the UK and beyond. 

In recent years he has had a hankering to produce a more wholesome gathering near home, amazingly Andrew’s path has led him to a similar idea and between the two of them they have the right know how and experience to produce Suffolk’s first and finest Wellness in the Wild Festival.

 Ed has worked in events for the last 20 years creating mad immersive private parties, lots of incredible weddings, some small festivals and all sorts of fun events. 

He now runs the Great Event Company which produces events in marquees and tents across East Anglia. Ed loves tents.
