Glamping SOLD OUT


Lime Wood - Saturday 8th July 2023

It all started with a guy and guitar in the garden 10 years ago… 10 YEARS AGO! How did that happen?! Well… they do say time flies when you are having fun.

That’s right, this summer we will be celebrating 10 years of Smoked & Uncut, and boy oh boy will we be throwing a hooley with 2 festival dates in July and August 2023.

Make the most of a sunshine-soaked Saturday in the fields surrounding Lime Wood in the New Forest; this is an open air party for everyone! Grab your party pals, dig into some seriously good field food, sip on something chilled and dance the day away.

Over the years we've partied with Sister Sledge, The Wailers, Razorlight, Nizlopi, with the Earth, Wind & Fire Experience featuring Al Mckay joining us last festival season!

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try feasting with Angela in the restaurant or booking a table at “The Apprentice” Tent?

Make the most of the festival vibes and spectacular surroundings and sleep under the stars in your very own bell-tent. Cosy up in the glamping village, tuck into Chef Angela Hartnett’s 3 course Italian-inspired field supper, and dance like no one is watching to good old fashioned rock and roll!



Adult (18+) - from £67.50pp (inc. booking fee)
Young Adult (16-17) - from £50pp (inc. booking fee)
Child (5-15) - from £30pp (inc. booking fee)
Infant (0-4) - Free

1 x Bell Tent for 2 people - £1250 (inc. booking fee) 




Multi-award winning, Grammy nominated Harlem-born singer Kelis, best known for her smash-hit 'Milkshake', will be coming to Lime Wood's yard with heaps of Y2K energy. Embracing the sounds of the 00's, you can expect a serious stage show with sing-along summer tunes with a side of nostalgia that is guaranteed to get the whole crowd dancing!




British pop singer and songwriter, Gabrielle will be taking to the INEOS Grenadier Main Stage alongside Kelis. Having sold millions of records around the world, Gabrielle is back celebrating 30 years of the multi-platinum selling single 'Dreams' and this summer will be throwing us back to the best of the 90's with her sing-along anthems including 'Out Of Reach', 'Rise' and 'Sunshine'.
