We are a biennial festival. The next edition will take place from 22 June - 30 June 2019. The festival theme will be Roots. If you would like to join the 2019 team, please get in touch.


Once upon a time

This was a place where we would gather

Children in care

Solar flares of risk

Of danger

In this village

We would wait here


The hungry stranger

Wakes up the sky


The Wandering stuff

It will never be still


The Passing place

Shakes courage from its slumber

It takes time

To plant your roots

It takes time to understand

This is home
