Sun & Moon Events in May 2024

At Sun & Moon we are all about community, and what better way to keep that strong than by getting together more often in the year? We wanted to make that happen, but we also recognise that different parts of our community have different wants and needs. For that reason we have decided to offer 2 events in May this year – of very different natures!

The May “Retreat”

  • Dates: Thursday 2nd May to Sunday 5th May
  • Venue: EarthSpirit Centre (near Glastonbury)

The May “Mini-Festival”

Sun and Moon May Retreat Programme

Prices are as shown on the booking form (see link in menu)

All attendees are required to take the food option in this event. Accommodation is optional, and there are options to camp as well as to stay in the quality on-site bedrooms that are available.

Here are a few photos of this lovely venue. For more images and information, please see the venue website: https://www.earthspirit-centre.co.uk/facilities.php#

More details on the “Mini-Festival”

This fun and friendly Mini-Festival will be much like our main festival, with the difference of it being a long weekend instead of a week (note that it is the bank holiday weekend in fact) and the setting is lovely but more economic so that we can keep the costs to a minimum

Horsham Rugby Club offers us a huge space to camp and set up marquees in, and is set off a quiet road, in the middle of forests and fields.

The programme for this gathering will be published closer to the time as there will be lots of “teachers” and activity leaders involved, so it will take a lot more time to get it together. Once we have it made, we will of course publish it here

Our aim with this gathering is to keep it very much a low cost event. Camping is included for free with the ticket price, which is itself minimal. Prices are as shown on the booking form (see link above)

There are no bedrooms in this venue, but the market town of Horsham is only a couple of miles away. We are offering glamping in Bell Tents for the weekend to make up for the lack of bedrooms. There are hot showers and plenty of toilets in the rugby clubhouse, which has recently been refurbished to a very high standard.

Leading workshops, kids activities and volunteering:

We would love to have as many workshops and activities as possible at the Mini-Festival in Horsham, so please do get in touch. In return for your contribution, we offer you free access to the gathering for you and your family!

Email us at info@sunandmoonfestival.com and let us know how you would like to participate!
