Folly make fun. Born out of The Game at Woodford Folk Festival, Folly Games is a group of creatives committed to making the world more playful. They have made immersive theatre, games and workshops. For Bushtime, Folly invite you to be part of their brand new tower defence game played in real life, as well the return of the ever popular ‘A Village Called...' project.

Workshops

A Village Called...Series

Build your own town using power tools, timber and pallets. The crew will train you up to use drills, impact drivers and saws, and provide you with timber to build a village. There is also paint, fabric, sewing machines, and host of other tools to get the job done. You build what you want, and you name the village. This project is for ages 10-17, strictly no adults allowed. Participants must wear covered shoes and practical clothing. Be prepared for the sun or the rain and that painting will be involved. Please bring a water bottle. Fee covers all AVC workshops in your Camp (there will be a Jotform link in your booking confirmation, please ensure this is filled in prior to the start of the workshop).

Tower Defence IRL Series

Do you know what a tower defence game is? To put it simply, you build towers to defend against waves of monsters that are trying to get at you. This is that - in real life. The village needs defending and those nasty adults are turning into monsters and trying to get in. We need pool noodle spears, foam boulders, magic spells and catapults - the village must not be taken! Together the players will plan their strategy, build their towers and defend the village. This is a game that requires thinking, as well as plenty of running around - and of course throwing things at adults. This is a physical game played outdoors. Be prepared to get wet, dirty and to run around. (One price covers the full camp’s TDIRL workshops.)
