Pukka's summer tour - a celebration of nature
14th June 2018 to 7th October 2018
Connecting to nature is at the heart of what we do at Pukka, through connecting people to the power of plants. We're always looking for ways to get outside, to meet people and share our herbal wisdom.
This is why this summer our team is planning our biggest road trip yet, travelling across the entire nation. We've commissioned a sustainably-made, hand-built caravan that will carry us, and our organic herbal teas and supplements on our journey. From small community projects and wild locations; to festivals and events up and down the country.
This is a journey to help us connect with you, and to help us all reconnect with nature.
We'll be stopping off at the following locations along the way. Come and join us this summer for good vibes, relaxing times and true Pukka herbal magic in nature.
Forest Live, Westonbirt Arboretum, Gloucestershire – 14th–17th June
Kicking off our summer tour with a four day stop off at Forest Live in the spectacular grounds of Westonbirt Arboretum.
Forest Live is a series of concerts hosted by The Forestry Commission (FSC), and this year is offering up incredible live performances from Paloma Faith, George Ezra, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott, and The Script.
What better way to come together and celebrate nature than through the power of music? We'll be serving up free herbal teas for people to enjoy on their explorations around 17 miles of accessible paths.
All profits from the concerts also go towards looking after our beautiful forests.
