24th European Gathering Yorkshire, England




We joyfully invite you to the 24th European Gathering in Yorkshire, England. The Gathering will start on New moon 26th July and continue till New moon 23rd August. Seed camp starts NOW, so please come now; we need your energy to build up the camp. Bring as much as possible Tarps, Construction Materials, Poles, Pecks to build communal and personal shelters and Workshop spaces. Be prepared for harsh conditions on site as the land is spacious and dramatic but exposed. There is very little wood for building. So bear that in mind while packing.

The nearest major town is SKIPTON; from there take the B6265 to THRESHFIELD near Grassington. 30 meters past the service station in Threshfield, take first left into SKIRETHORNS LANE. Continue for mile passing a quarry on the right hand side. At fork in the road turn right into WOOD LANE, continue for 1/2 mile and bear left into HARD GATE. Continue straight along this road until reaching a farm gate. Pass through the gate and WELCOME HOME........
***There will be ribbons to guide your way***


=> We respectfully suggest that:

- The Gathering will be drug and alcohol free
- There will be no vehicles on the site itself
- We bring in no weapons or plastic
- Dogs are strongly discouraged as sheep are close by so if brought, keep them under close control and bury their droppings
- There will be no buying or selling
- Gatherers use the recycling centre set up on the site. Whatever we pack-in we pack-out!
- We tread lightly on the land and return it as we found it when we leave
- We try only to have fires in the kitchen, bakery, communal spaces and the large central sacred fire
- Our Gatherings are non-electrical. All the energy needed is human energy - self generated
- Thus we live in peaceful respect for Each Other, the Earth, the Water, the Trees, Plants and the Animals
- Our Gathering is not a "free" Festival. Money is collected by the Magic Hat after meals in order to buy food and supplies

YOU ARE JOYFULLY INVITED TO JOIN IN AND GET INVOLVED.

=> We respectfully suggest that:

- We bring in no plasticDude, half the stuff on your "things to bring" list contains (or is very likely to contain) plastics and polyesters. Maybe it'd be better to suggest that people attempt to minimise the amount of plastic they bring?
