Join a foraging workshop with mushroom specialists and experience a unique concert by composer and musician Cosmo Sheldrake, who incorporates recordings of natural sounds into his music. When the sun sets, this year's commissioned artist Carola Grahn will lead you into the woods for her ritual performance Hupenhesis –Offernatt.
