Basic practical skills

Our gatherings are focused on learning basic skills with full days of practical workshops because we have Hope for the future and our goal is to live in a more sustainable way. Sell your hand-made or second-hand stuff in our Camp Market. Join our temporary community and get involved in fun group activities.

You can find full details of past workshops on our workshops page.

Radical Bakers Gatherings are held at our beautiful site at Berrington Hall and 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.

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!

Pingle Kid’s Space

There are organised activities for children at our Summer Gathering. 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! Don’t forget the Lemon Jousting!

Hello All, thank you, once again, for a really good festival. This one seemed especially needed and joyful. It brought a great deal of much needed energy to my soul and hope going forward. Please extend all my thanks to everyone who made it so special.
