Learn and Share Practical Skills

We are hoping to put on our 2021 June Gathering with reduced numbers to comply with social distancing. Workshop sizes will be smaller and we will be putting infrastructure in place including a hot hand-wash station and an outdoor stage.

I will be applying for the licence in March, when the effects of the vaccination program are clearer in people’s minds. Shropshire council are usually fairly quick to respond so I should know by mid-march whether it will be possible for us to gather.

Fingers and toes (and eyes) crossed that we can have our events this year. If this proves not to be the case, We will still be here the year after… Learning and sharing basic practical skills is more important than ever. These are challenging times for everyone. Stick together folks! Love RB Team

Radical Bakers Gatherings are friendly weekend camping events with a chance to learn and share practical skills. Focused discussions and hands-on workshops during the day lead into quality live music and dancing on the Green Dragon Solar Stage in the evenings. We offer fully catered tickets from our amazing caterer and our pop-up pub is The Baker’s Arms selling local ales, cider and craft gin. Our June Gathering is at Crabapple Community near Shrewsbury, one of the oldest housing co-ops in the country. Our September Harvest Camp is in a beautiful valley in Snowdonia National Park in Wales.

Practical skills for sustainable living

Radical Bakers Gatherings are small, friendly weekends with a focus on learning and sharing skills. We believe in personal responsibility and empowerment. We want people to take away skills and information that they can use to improve their lives, and the lives of those around them. Our goal is to live more sustainably.
