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.

The Woodland Games 2023 has finished for this year but we're going to be getting ready to start organising The Woodland Games 2024 in the New Year... we would love your help!

If you'd like to be part of the team to deliver next years games then email us now at with the subject: Woodland Games 2024

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.
