HOLLYWOOD star Tom Hardy has been spotted at a festival in Sussex.
The Mad Max: Fury Road actor returned for another year at the Into the Wild Festival at Chiddinglye Estate in East Grinstead.
Festival founder Huw Williams was thrilled to see Tom, 44, over the bank holiday weekend when he was in attendance with his wife and children.
Huw told The Argus: “It’s really cool and he just comes over and buys tickets with his family.
“We don’t have bars and I think that’s why Tom comes because he doesn’t drink, so it’s a really nice, safe family environment.
“He’s been a few times with his kids, his wife and he’s brought a few friends too.
“He’s really cute and that’s good because people aren’t bombarding him and queuing for photos.
“I just walked up to him and thanked him for coming and said next time he wants to come and stay, we can do that.
“I got him one of our t-shirts that I designed. He put it on and loved it, he said let’s take a picture.
“He’s a really nice guy, everyone who met him said how handsome he is.”
In the Wild is a nature-based festival that aims to bridge the gap between people’s connection with nature and fun.
It hosts a range of workshops, bush crafts, children’s activities, storytelling, dance, yoga, as well as live worldwide music from artists such as Olivia Fern and Mobius Loop, as well as silent discos under the trees.
Huw said: “It’s just nice that we have 1,500 kids and tons of families coming out and getting involved in creative workshops and all sorts of things.
“We’ve been doing this for about eight years, we started with 150 people and now it’s almost 5,000.
“We were one of the first festivals that didn’t have bars, which is quite a risk as they are real money makers, but actually it’s attracted a certain audience who really enjoy it.
“The odd person might have a drink, we don’t ban it directly, but we don’t encourage it.
“We let dad get up at 5am and do yoga, I’m not sure you’d get that at Glasto.
“It’s not just families either, we have people of all ages, we have a kombucha bar and a lot of healthy soft drinks that a lot of young people like too, so we have a lot of choices.”
The festival takes place in the open air and in large tents and has a large children’s area and cabins for overnight stays.
Next year’s festival will take place from August 24th to 28th, find out more here
