Maui Waui is a 3 day festival of international music, performance and arts.

Now in its 7th year, it is fast becoming one of East Anglia’s most exciting festivals. It pulls in entertainment from around the globe with world class bands, exciting circus shows and endless activities for children and adults alike.

From the moment you arrive at the festival you are greeted with a comforting and relaxed atmosphere, all the staff are smiling and happy. Maui Waui has a wonderful family feel from all its participants.

You can choose to camp between the main campsite, campervan field, family camping, disabled camping and the optional quiet camping for those who wish for a quieter night away from the hustle.

The festival itself is relatively small with the campsite and arena on the same field, nowhere is far to walk and your never far away from popping back to the camp.
