As well as the Music and Ideas programme, there is a lot more to explore at KITE.

The Skylark Social

Meet the authors, get your book signed, search for that elusive record, enjoy a coffee or drink, peruse our shop whilst listening to carefully curated music – welcome to the Skylark Social!

If you’re inspired by a ThinkIn at KITE, or if you hear an idea that you’d like to explore more, make your way to the book shop and grab a book to take home with you.


Palladian House & Gardens VIP

A unique VIP experience at KITE, to ensure your festival time is reinvigorating and enthralling in equal measure. Explore our packages now, and you could have a dining experience in Kirtlington house with a Tortoise journalist and/or a festival speaker, and/or relax in the gardens for some respite from the hustle and bustle of the festival.

Food and Drink

Follow your nose and treat yourself to some delicious street food. Sweet and savoury, meaty, gluten and dairy free, vegan and vegetarian options from all around the world. Soak up the atmosphere and get stuck in.

Kirlington Park

Kirtlington Park is KITE’s home and for the weekend, it’ll become yours too. Set in stunning parklands against the backdrop of a Palladian mansion, it’s easily accessible from Oxford, London and Birmingham. Come on down and make yourself at home. 


Because we all love a bit of luxury after a day exploring our bodies and souls at a festival. Book a boutique structure in addition to your festival ticket and you will not regret it.
