What is
The Woodland Games?

The Woodland Games is Stirchley's answer to the Olympics!

An irreverent nature-themed festival organised by residents, workers and friends of Stirchley, South Birmingham. Fully solar powered, from the bars to the sound stage.

The festival explores ecology and celebrates our local green spaces through costume, sculpture and performance.

How it Works?

Groups of friends, families and neighbours sign up as teams and then come along to our Woodland Games artist studio where they have one week to build/ make/ paint their team costume! Inspired by eco-science and nature, we give you all the materials and technical help you need. Then on the day of the Woodland Games all teams come together to compete in a series of activities inspired by nature! 

Email us now at hipkissandgraney@outlook.com with the subject: Woodland Games 2024 Team Sign Up!

What kind of workshops do
we do?

A Woodland Games can involves big costume making,  banner painting and instrument making!

They're big social events, they're messy, busy and for all ages. Although they're perfect for families they're for groups of all ages and backgrounds.

All workshops are ran by Stirchley artists Hipkiss & Graney.
