The place to discuss our ethos, aims, ambitions, campaigns, initiatives, events, membership ideas, editorial policy and how we develop the site.
It's somehow appropriate that Campfire is sending out an invite to come to Frome for five days in late August 2019 (August 28-September 1). The town has been in the news a lot for its independent, non-conformist groups and activities, campaigns and initiatives and this event might just turn out to be a gathering of the clans...
Book here at £75 for adult 5 day tickets and limited weekend tickets at £40 adults / £15 children. We have a very small number of free 'Campfire Bursary' tickets available to those who can't afford to pay for their ticket - apply via firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can now download or view our full 5 day programme

What's in store?
A five day gathering in the glorious Somerset countryside celebrating life. Join us for talks, panels, ‘how to’ sessions, games, cookery, alternative therapies, music, performance art, foraging and yoga. The vibe is hay bales, campfires, night skies, cinema, street food, picnics, glamping and much more.
We aim to combine a feminine intelligence with a masculine intelligence to explore ways we can dance together in a delicious oneness that can honour and celebrate these differences but also transcend them and harness the combined energy in a universal consciousness.
Bring what you expect to find!
Part of our programme utilises the open space format to allow radical participation - enabling all members to convene their own sessions. We intend to build a truly democratic festival to explore ways we can imagine a better world, and then empower ourselves to actually make it happen.
We do have some organised programme, for example a range of speakers :
In this age of disconnection, fear, and alienation, how do we set intention? How do we achieve balance, strength and focus on the positive? How do we start building resources to make a difference? How do we gain the inner strength to maximise our potential as human beings and as community?
Field 725 is just one mile from the Somerset market town of Frome and is fully equipped with compost loos and showers, food and drink will be available or BYO.
Campout 2019 will celebrate connection, spontaneity and celebration. Join us for this coming-together to round off high summer by seeking positive solutions.
Together we can create the change we all know is possible.
