For children we have 2 sessions of organised activities each day and a Kid’s Baking Session. Our workshops involve practical tasks we can do together to achieve a concrete goal, or are there to give you information you can use to improve your life and the lives of those around you. Check out our workshops archive.
The fabulous Weirdstring Band are our Friday Night Headliners supported by Birds and Beasts who are also running an Animal-Themed Quiz on the Saturday. The Clay Bottom Jug Busters headline on Saturday Evening (support TBA).
The Green Dragon Solar Stage uses top-quality modern PA equipment and is powered from the sun. There is a quiet camping area and the amplified music ends at midnight.
A detailed Timetable will be available before the event. This is inevitably subject to change and an updated timetable will be kept on the chalk board outside the Café.
You can arrive from Thursday midday and the café is open Thursday night with music and pizza.
Radical Bakers workshops start at 5pm on Friday with crafts and a few scheduled sessions including a tour of Crabapple. The Gathering Introduction is at Friday 8pm with live music and a bar. It would be great if you could make it to this opening session.
