Small World-Small World Summer Festival  24th -28th Aug

20 years ago we held the first Small World festival, it was just a couple of hundred of people in the top field. To see us grow into the flourishing community we have become is a deeply joyful thing. Friends old and new are invited to join us to celebrate our 20th birthday.
Love love love   Pony, Emma and all the Small World crews past and present.

Five days of music, creative spirit & sustainable living. Powered by the sun. Intimate, intense, warm and colourful, the way festival goers love.

Small and safe so parents and children can relax and have fun. A sustainable community celebrating the sheer joy of creativity, trust and love.

An intoxicating blend of musicians, performers, artists, healers, craftspeople, colourful characters, jesters, magicians, families and party people.
