Summer Gathering Workshops

This is a family-friendly gathering structured around a full programme of diverse workshops, campaigns round-ups, networking sessions and more. From physical & practical outdoor sessions to discussion-based workshops - the aim is to provide something for everyone, whether you're just dipping your toes into direct action campaigning or have been around a while. It is also a great opportunity to meet, socialise and organise with like-minded people and have some fun!

The workshop programme will run from Wednesday morning through to the evening meal on Sunday. Wednesday morning’s workshops will be practical ones focused on setting up a protest site or gathering - so if you’ve not there already helping set-up, come Tuesday night or first thing Wednesday to gain valuable skills. The full timetable will be announced when finalised, so check back for updates.

Please contact us if you would like to offer to run a workshop at the gathering (or know of somebody who could) via .
