I've been dying to let this one out of the bag...

The idea for this event came out of a chance remark from Norman Jay MBE over lunch in west London a month or so ago. Norman and I were reminiscing about Good Times, The Big Chill and looking forward too, talking about his plans - he's writing a book - and how he could support Campfire and in particular our May launch for the  'Fire In The Belly' crowdfund initiative, for which he has kindly done a promo video, when he asked "Have you considered doing a Little Chill as a fundraiser for Campfire?'

To be honest, it wasn't something I had given any thought too prior to that point, but on my drive down to Brighton that afternoon, the idea was circulating around in my head and I had a couple of conversations when I got to the coast. By lunchtime the next day, we had been offered a site in the South Downs and within a couple of weeks, a small team emerged who were up for organising the event. So I dropped a few people an email and was pleasantly surprised by the response, so much so that a line-up of 'old favourites' is already taking shape. So it will be three day 'down on the farm' vibe event in glorious Sussex countryside over the weekend of July 27 / 28, not far from Lewes, with camping, arrive from Friday afternoon / evening, music and other attractions through Saturday and Sunday until late afternoon. The event will be 499 max capacity so it's definitely a case of first come, first served. 

The Campfire crowdfund is now live https://fundrazr.com/campfireconvention and many of our member have offered perks which are visible as different options too. Initially we are featuring The Little Chill as a ticket purchase option, available exclusively through our Campfire Crowdfund site.

Other options contained in our crowdfund will include a whole range of Mentorship sessions from our members, ranging from a playwright workshop to yoga sessions, how to make a podcast through to a whole weekend of events management training. There will also be limited discounted volunteer tickets to Campfire events in Frome (August) and Paros, Greece (September).
