The site is 100 acres of mainly woodland, it's on a 3,500 acre private estate, it's right with the second largest sand dunes in Europe (I think that's right) so there's plenty of space there. We limit the numbers to around 250 and we limit it by advertising through bcuk only, we don't turn people away if they turn up which is why some years there's more people there.
There's a lot of pressure to allow it to grow into a bigger event but it has a unique atmosphere and freedom about it that we want to keep and we've managed to do that for the most part, for over a decade.
It's a fairly unique gathering.
Hooked by George's recent blog - I'll be there from the 4th and am looking forward to meeting folks, learning and teaching - I'm signed up for the Bhutanese Bow making and Coastal Hunter Gatherer. Thanks George
Unfortunatelly I'm working my rump off during the week so can only do stages every weekend.
Ticket purchased, train fares payed. "Kit box" out and gutted.
This weekend I'm washing all clothes and looking after my boots. Sunday night everything on the list must be found/cleaned/checked and ready to pack.
