The freedom and intimacy of a private garden party - with the production value of a festival
3 Days of getting deeply connected in sensational Arcadian parkland, set amongst ancient oaks and stretched out along the banks of the river Avon

Group Photo - Saturday 17:00-18:00 In front of the House

Theme: 'Heart of the Forest'
Talking to Nick & Lucy Fothergill, the owners at Stanford Hall they gave us a fascinating insight into the Celtic tribes who once populated the lands on which Stanford now stands
Apparently it's strategic significance at the heart of the country enabled the CORITANI people to trade with the Romans rather than be immediately annihilated
We liked the idea of the modern GIVE! tribe - who now use the land to celebrate unity - honouring the ancient tribe for whom this land was once home
With that in mind we've been working on a plan to decorate and develop the Woodland Shelter, nestled in the trees near the UV garden, to resemble a Coritani dwelling
Throughout the weekend Bards, Minstrels and Poets will be performing specially composed odes, rhymes and acoustic musical treats, with the occasional accompaniment of a pop-up mead bar
Bring NEW PEOPLE to GIVE!
Don't be shy - New additions to the tribe keep things FRESH
Bring stuff to GIVE away . . .
Please bring a few small, thoughtful treats - bracelets, badges, crystals, sweets to give away to random people you meet over the weekend
GIVE & GET GIVE
Clean, funky clothes - to swap?
If your clothes no longer become you, they should be coming to us...
One person's fashion faux-pas is another person's fashion delight...
Start thinking 'spring cleaning' and clear out your 'beloved-no-longers' ready for Give.
You know which ones they are and you know they’re going to look better on someone else - you never know what might replace them!
