Wanting a little bit of luxury at Spirit Fest?
Check out the Glamping, Tent Hire and Tent Space Hire on the Glamping page.
Up to the 15th. July we are offering a £50 reduction on the basic Glamping Tent Hire.
The Glamping offers a basic tent for two and then you can add the extras you need depending on how many you are. We are also renting out tents and dormitory space with mattresses, sleeping bags or bedding but only until the 15th. August so make sure you book in time!!
Yes, Early Bird Tickets are a good deal less than buying a full price ticket after the 31st. May and way less than buying on the gate. At the time of writing there are 15 days left so leaving this reminder.

Peace and Love, Paul, Ravi and the Team.
With one month to go there is a lot of exciting news. First off is that Gavin Kendrick, the food alchemist, is running the Chai Lounge this year and bringing his magical talents to create raw and nourishing snacks and food as well as Chai, Kambucha, hand picked herbal teas and Jun. Also Bob Hillary and The Babaji Temple Singers are joining the music program. There are five different kinds of dance workshops!! Indian, Flamenco, Belly dancing, Kundalini dance and Tantra Trance Dance with Seth Newman.
The youth and children will be well catered for by Samantha and Scott.
The Healing Circle will be offering a wide variety of sessions including Inversion, Reiki, Four Hands Massage, Holistic Facial Massage, the Form and more.
Even though the program is filling up there are always late additions and fabulous, cosmic, organic, spontaneous magic that allows the universe to create whatever is needed or wanted in the festival.
There is still room for more healers and particularly stall holders.
A special delight for me is the arrival of my friend Dave Atkins the multi-instrumentalist and singer who I know from Totnes and our days in the Bluegrass band, Grassroots. This will be a long overdue reunion. Here we are below in the early 90s in Switzerland.
So, if you are in doubt what to do with the last week of the summer holidays then
Paul Terrell. 3rd. May, Gothenburg.
I have just got back home from a weekend at the London, Mind Body and Spirit event called The Wellness Festival at Olympia. I hung people upside down and talked about Spirit Fest. There were lots of old and new friends.
At last I have posted the interview with Kenny, about the health drink, Jun, on Youtube. Here is the link but it is on this site's Homepage and on the FB events page as well. https://youtu.be/KCfLh0w5-_0
I was also able to spread the word in Oslo the weekend before. I had an overtone and harmonic music concert and sound journey joined by the fabulous flute player and overtone singer, Tal Coleman. We sang in a mausoleum with a 45 second reverb!
We are also delighted that so many people have been contacting us and wanting to offer their gifts to the Festival. Healers, stall holders, workshop leaders and activity and youth leaders, musicians and artists.
You will see some new names in the program soon.
Early Bird tickets are over now and I am happy to say that there were a few of you who took advantage.
'Two Rivers', aka.Justin Ravi Freeman and Adrian Freedman are now on a lightning tour of the north, Manchester, Leeds, Hembon Bridge, Sheffield between 4-7 May. They will be playing at the festival in September.
Wow. It's happening again and before anything else we need to shout very loudly,
GET YOUR EARLY BIRD TICKETS BEFORE THEY END ON THE 30TH. APRIL!!!
OK so that shouted we can talk more quietly about the wonderful new site in the Forest of Dean with a great restaurant, sauna, glamping, children and youth activities, ceremonies, celebrations and an exciting program of music, dance, arts, workshops, circles and sharing the joy of life together in nature for four days.
