"I just loved it, it was everything I wanted, needed and hoped it would be."
Creative Countryside gatherings 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 remote locations in the UK countryside, giving you the chance to really slow down and disconnect too, if you like.
"Loved the fabulous group of people it brought together! I came away from it so inspired."
SUMMER GATHERING 2018
FRIDAY 22ND - SUNDAY 24TH JUNE
This year the Summer Gathering will take place on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, near Ravenstonedale. We'll be staying in the Tarn Centre, a converted barn with spectacular views over the Uldale Valley and surrounding fells. You can choose from a bunk-bed or double room (limited in number), and if you'd like to bunk with a friend just let us know!
Included in the price is your accommodation, all food, and all activities. Bed linen is also provided. Note that alcohol is not included in the price.
The nearest train station is in Kendal (approximately 30 minutes by car). Please get in touch if you are travelling by train and would like to share a taxi with other attendees.
The itinerary below should give you an idea of what to expect, though it is subject to change.
