The workshops at HEFF are an integral part of our festival.

They create an easygoing friendly environment in which people can find new friends and hang out with people who have similar interests.

Ranging from arts & crafts, to science, engineering and sports – with a whole lot of other activities in between. There’s sure to be something for everyone.

Hear from previous HEFF goers…

HEFF is a fantastic opportunity for the whole family to spend a week in a field with hundreds of other families who ‘get you’, understand Home Ed, and share common enthusiasm for learning outside the box.

Festival goer

As a family we have made friends from all over the country and these friendships are so special.

As the boys have got older it has been lovely to have people facilitate their interests and for them to be given the chance to grow in responsibility. My eldest son for example has hosted the talent show for some time now.

So I would wholeheartedly recommend HEFF for the whole family!
