Frome is yet again at the forefront of big ideas about future living, with a weekend of inspiration, fun and community.
Campfire Convention, the initiative created by Big Chill founder and Frome resident Pete Lawrence is returning to Frome following a successful summer Campout event in 2019. The two-day Winter Gathering at the recently refurbished Bennett Centre in Vicarage street takes place on the weekend of 15th and 16th February and promises to be a heady mix of discussion, innovation, art and music.
A major part of the weekend will be a challenge set by artist, musician and Campfire patron Brian Eno inviting people to pitch an idea, the winning idea receiving a prize to help it become a reality as well as a full length session at the summer Campfire event at the nearby Field 725 event in early August. Eno who has supported the Campfire organisation from the beginning said ‘I came to Campfire because I’m interested in new social ideas, how we can think about things differently and and how things can be done in a better way’
The Winter Gathering will be about creating new relationships and connections in the growing Campfire community and welcoming potential new members. The weekend promises to be a lively, fun and informative event. Founder Pete Lawrence said ‘We believe that the Campfire model can help shape the future for community social networking, something that can work for the good of everyone, this gathering in February will be inspirational and radical, we are planning team sessions, discussions on social ideas and making new connections and on the Sunday night we have fabulous live music including Frome band Boudicca’s Child, Frome based poet Liv Torc, singer songwriter Beth Salmon and author Steve Thorp.
