Creative Countryside events offer the opportunity to meet and connect with other like-minded creatives. You'll learn new things, feast on seasonal food, and take part in traditional rituals and ceremonies. The gatherings take place in beautiful locations in the UK, giving you the chance to really slow down and disconnect too, if you like.


2019 Events


Community Meet-Up (all welcome!)

Saturday 23rd March

Join us for an afternoon at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for an informal meet-up with like-minded souls. Our meet-ups are usually just for our community members, but we’re opening this to all who might be interested.

We’ll begin with hot drinks and cake, before setting off to explore the grounds.

There will be plenty of opportunities to chat, appreciate the artwork, and embrace the season!
