Radical Bakers Gatherings are small, friendly weekend camping events that give you a chance to learn, connect and empower yourself with practical skills. Participate in focused workshops and party to quality music on the Green Dragon Solar Stage. Our pop-up pub/café is The Baker’s Arms offering local ales, ciders and craft gins and you can treat yourself with fully catered tickets. Our courses are taught by experienced and knowledgeable people. We sell no more than 100 adult tickets for each event.
We have Hope for the future and our goal is to live in a more sustainable way. Our gatherings are focused on learning basic skills with full days of practical workshops. Full details of past workshops on our workshops page. Check the event pages for details of confirmed workshops and entertainment for this year. Join our temporary community and get involved in fun group activities. Sell your hand-made or second-hand stuff in our Camp Market.
We are proud to host the Green Dragon Solar Stage. Quality live bands each evening – professional acts with a modern PA system powered from the sun. Take a look at past bands in our Music Archive. Our events are totally solar powered, this includes the stage and workshop spaces as well as the kitchen appliances and site lighting. We are committed to recycling everything we can. There are working composting toilets, clean drinking water and a hot shower. We ask people to bring their own utensils and provide a hot water washing up station. We have a beautiful site at Berrington Hall, but please do not expect glamping.
Hi, I just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for hosting radical bakers. My family had an amazing time and for me it was great that someone else catered healthy amazing tasty food for us! I’ve come away inspired and energised to get on with projects and believe anything is possible now with a little research. It was so good to meet people with a similar out look on life and listen to their stories and what they have achieved. Thank you to everyone who worked in the kitchens, behind the scenes organising everything and running the workshops as well as my fellow campers for being good people to spend a summer weekend with!
We have organised activities for children at our Summer Gathering. Get ready for a Wild Play adventure with our Kid’s Space Crew! Join us for two action-packed 3-hour sessions each day. Unleash your inner Baker and join our Kid’s Baking Session, where we’ll form an all-star Kid’s Team to win the Bake-Off! And don’t forget the Lemon Jousting!
