On Saturday the 22nd of August, participants will be taken away to a secret woodland location, for a weird and wonderful 24hour live art festival.
Participants will gather at a named location in London, and board the LOST coach. Those who want to drive can board the LOST shuttle buses, which depart from the parking field nearby.
On board the LOST transport, windows will be blanked out, and phones will be left at home – the location will remain a secret.
Upon arrival at the LOST woods, participants will enter ‘limbo’. They will drop off their bags, change into their overalls, and get ready to create a piece of live, accumulative art.
The LOST woods will be transformed into an engaging outdoor gallery by our hugely talented team of artists, architects and musicians. Expect stunning sculptures, giant paintings, interactive installations, miniature exhibitions hidden within the trees, impromptu performances and much, much more. A giant three-dimensional canvas will be created for LOST participants to explore, adapt and enjoy.
LOST is where spectators become participants, and participants become artists. Prepare to get messy.
In addition to all the artwork, there will be characterful bars, delicious food stalls, cosy cinema tipis, inventive chilling and viewing areas, beautifully lit tree houses, independent camping and even a luxury bell tent village for those who want extra comfort and ease. All played out alongside a very exciting line-up.
This event is special because we’re inviting YOU to be the artists. We provide the overalls, materials and equipment and you make your mark.
We’ll see you in the woods…
NOTE: LOST is an escape from reality. From the moment you arrive, you will be encouraged to forget about life outside of the woods. To maintain the magic and sense of escapism, you will be asked to leave your mobile phones at home, to avoid distraction and contact from the outside world.
Photography is encouraged. So if you normally use your mobile phone to take photographs, please bring along a camera. Alternatively you can buy a disposable camera at the event.
Phones will be available at various information points, and you will be asked to provide us with important contact details when you sign your forms - just in case of an emergency.
