Regional Events & Camps
Since 2019, it has been the intention of Sacred Arts Camp help encourage the creation of more regional events and camps all over the UK to expand the essence of Sacred Arts from just the one big camp to lots of smaller events over the course of the year.
These events have blossomed over the past few years and the intention of this page is to list those events and camps,
If you are hosting an event or camp and wish it to be listed on this page, please email details to email@example.com
We gather normally on the first Saturday of each month (except for occasional changes).
Next event: Sat 3rd Feb 2024, 12.30pm - 4pm
Change of venue for February: Claverham Friends Meeting House, Meeting House Lane, Claverham BS49 4PB
This is an old Quaker building with a very special atmosphere, and a lovely garden with fireplace, so we can be indoors or outdoors.
Bring some food to share for a meal in mid afternoon, and warm clothes in case we spend some time outside. To help people find the building, we will hang a scarf at the gate.
Normal venue (not Feb):: Bristol Forest School, Leigh Woods, Bristol BS8 3RA (Note: we do not meet in the main forest school area & recommend you contact Morag for directions if you have not been below-contact details below).
Meet at 12.30 in the car park (important if you've not been before as the area we dance can be tricky to find)
Dancing In The Woods started meeting early in 2021, when dancing indoors was not possible due to lockdown. We have continued to dance in a sheltered clearing in Bristol Forest School, Leigh Woods, every month since then. It is a privilege to be outdoors in nature, sharing food round the fire, and experiencing dance in such a beautiful setting. We also have some indoor dances, during the winter
We do a mix of circle dances and peace dances, all with live music.
Everything is taught simply, and is suitable for anyone, some dances are lively and
some more meditative.
We dance from around 1pm – 4pm with breaks for refreshments.
As well as dancing there is time for sharing, and other contributions. During the summer, we change to evening dances.
Food and drink – Do please eat before you come and bring enough to keep you going; there is usually a big pot of hot soup (vegan) which we eat either in the middle or at the end, so do bring your own bowl and spoon. Other shared food is very much appreciated. There is water supply so we can boil a kettle on the fire, but a flask is good for hot drinks during the earlier part of the afternoon before the fire is lit.
There are also basic toilets (compost style).
Contact Morag (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details (including directions) and/or to be added to the mailing list.
Donations: £15 - £40 is a rough guide, but less or more is also welcome
