Tiff is a theatre maker and facilitator, exploring the non-verbal languages of space, rhythm and physicality. He facilitates nature based learning experiences for children and adults; volunteering as a trainer with the charity organisation Forest School Camps and curating an annual community gathering in the forest.

James Edwards

James Edwards

James’ love for the natural world was kindled by making and sleeping in forest bivouacs as a Boy Scout. For more than a decade, he has balanced his career as an actor and musician with regular work for Wildlife Trust BCN (Beds, Cambs, Northants).

As a composer, he has created songs, scores and soundscapes for a wide variety of theatrical productions, many of them performed in the open air. He is a passionate believer in the importance of connecting with and deepening awareness of the natural world, and is still at his happiest traipsing around a woodland, whether in Cambridgeshire, Bavaria or Siberia!

Sam Lee

Sam Lee

How many traditional English folk singers do you know who come from North London, studied at Chelsea School of Art, worked as a forager and wilderness expert while moonlighting as a burlesque dancer – until a chance encounter led to the door of the great Scottish Traveller singer Stanley Robertson, and an extraordinary four-year apprenticeship into the arcane, living world of traditional song that few outside the Traveller and Gypsy communities have ever experienced?

Since bursting on to the folk scene at the end of the Noughties, Mercury Prize nominee Sam Lee has blazed a trail as an outstanding singer and song collector. He’s also been the driving force behind the eclectic, award-winning folk club The Nest Collective,  founder of the vital Song Collectors’ Collective, and the originator of Singing With Nightingales.
