  • Description

    Description

    This is a yearly festival, lasting four days at the end of August in Gloucestershire. 31st. August to the 3rd. September. It started in 2014 and is growing every year. We invite you to help us create and run the festival from three weeks before the festival starts and then during the festival to help run it. Practical and artistic skills are useful but if you are willing to learn then there are leaders to instruct and support you and teams to work with. We are vegetarian and the site has no drugs or alcohol...or dogs. My name is Paul and I am a musician, therapist and teacher. I enjoy the festival atmosphere where we create something for just four days and then it is gone, like a dance or a bubble or a cloud. The fun is making the space beautiful, practical, exciting and full of Love.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can train you in festival skills. These include carpentry, living on the land, cooking and making a variety of decorative and practical things. This year we are building eco toilets and possibly a second outside shower. There are instructors on site to show you how to do this. We work in teams so there is plenty of communication. We eat vegetarian food and enjoy cooking so you can practice new recipes with us. We like to keep fit, play games, dance, sing and do yoga. We are living on the land so we need to entertain ourselves and each other. There is no TV!! It is a simple life.
