Dark Mountain Camp

This will be a week-long unconference with a touch of Burning Man thrown in. Themes will be as for Dark Mountain - futures, the local, the general, the hands on, and more. Bring your music, your poetry and your art, there's long evenings to fill. The aim is for an emphasis on fairly practical things but that will be down to who comes, and what kind of skills and intentions they bring with them.
  • Monday 24 May - Friday 28 May
  • Cost is free but places are limited.


This festival is a gathering for people who have stopped believing the stories our civilisation tells itself. It is a festival of ideas and action for those who want to view the future through a different lens.
  • Friday 28 May - Sunday 30 May
  • Tickets cost from £10 to £60, with a range of options between day tickets and weekend passes for adults and children (under 12's free).
