8-10 SEPTEMBER 2023
THE BIG SKY HANG OUT
A LITTLE FESTIVAL FOR HAMMOCK ENTHUSIASTS
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
The Big Sky Hang Out is a weekend for people who like the idea of sleeping a few feet above the ground.
Whether you're an experienced hammocker or a total beginner, as long as you're curious about the world of hammocking this little festival is for you. It's a chance to meet new friends, discover different types of hammock set-ups, and listen to entertaining talks. Oh, and they'll be plenty of time to hang out and chat, too.
The Hang Out this year is held at the Big Sky Hideaway near Boston in Lincolnshire between the 8th and the 10th September 2023.
All ticket holders will have space in the Big Sky woodland to hang their own hammocks. For those without their own hammock, there will be an opportunity to hire one.
The weekend is slow paced and relaxed, centred around hanging around between the trees and meeting other hammock lovers. For this first Big Sky hangout we didn't want to timetable too much, but in the barn by the woods we'll have talks and a bar each evening.
There will be also be a raffle filled with chances to win some excellent hammock-related prizes!
Entry to the Hang Out between 2pm Friday 8th and 12 noon Sunday 10th September.
Hammocking space (2 trees per hammock only - our woodland is fairly small and doesn't have many good options for 3 sided Tentsile hammocks)
Attendance to any activities and talks
Pack your own lunch, but we have options for home-cooked pizza each evening, and breakfast each morning. You can add these (and any dietary requirements) when you buy your weekend ticket, or decide at a later date.
Calling all sponsors!
We're inviting happy hammock companies to join our inaugural hang out.
Sponsors will receive:
Covered space to display and sell their wares
Direct access to 100 hammockers over the weekend
Feature in event film
Interviewed for an event podcast
An evening speaking slot (more entertaining than salesy)
Excellent social media content opportunities
Sponsors are asked to:
Provide a workshop twice over the weekend showing guests their hammock set-up
Provide raffle prizes of £300 (retail) or more
Donate one hammock to the Big Sky Hammock Village
You have questions.
We have answers
Are kids welcome? We anticipate the majority of attendees will be adults so while we love kids, there won't be speical child prices this year and we ask that any parents bringing children do so only if they're beautifully behaved!
Can I camp instead of hammock? You sure can! We have a lovely camping meadow so you can bring your own tent or hire one of our other quirky accommodations and still enjoy walking around the woodland, looking at other guest's hammocks and enjoying a variety of lounging hammocks that we have around.
Can we stay in your glamping accommodation that weekend? Absolutely! If it hasn't been booked yet it's up for grabs!

Tip: DO NOT just enter the postcode, it covers a large area around here and won’t get you to us on its own.
We'll be on the right if you're coming from Hubbert's Bridge. You’ll see the sign for Larringtons on the roadside and we're right down the track next door. Keep a look out for the black American mailbox and "Timberholme" sign. It can be easy to whizz past without seeing our entrance so when you get close slow down and keep a good look out!
