Any woman is welcome to input into them, but also welcome to bring her own tent! We've had a tent on pregnancy, a tent on Eldership, a tent for Sexual pleasure....... we never know what'll pop up next, that's up to you! just tell us what's coming, and we'll make space. If you don't fit into any of these tents, but have an idea, get in touch! email@example.com
Tickets The Radical Participation tickets go like this:
Workshop Leader: For a Woman who is well versed at running workshops and can run one for a minimum of 40 women OR a Woman holding a talk- We are super happy to hold you if you have never run one before and are trying to step up, but if this is the case, please come through another ticket and apply for space in one of the tents. If you purchase a workshop ticket and do not have the experience, we will ask you to buy another and void this one.
Performer: This is for someone or a group coming to do a full show (singing/dancing/burlesque..whatever) - If you just want to share a few songs or poems, please come through another ticket and apply to the Expression Tent for a time slot or just come on in our free mic sessions.
Info Tent: Helping to run the Info tent - getting to know the layout of the festival, the schedule and helping others. It is also our first aid tent so please apply if you have some training, and our lost and found. This is one of the easier tickets for our more elderly/otherwise abled sisters, so please be aware of that on purchase is you are able bodied.
Kitchen Crew : We have the most amazing team from the Co-exist kitchen coming to cook for us all this year - you'll be helping them prepare, cook and clean for a shift during the festival. Pouring your love into our food!
Welcome: Everyone coming into the festival has to be met, parked and ticketed. This is the gateway into the festival and a wonderful chance to be the first face the women coming see!
Land Care Crew: The crew that really encapsulates Our Permaculture Principles: Tending to the compost, recycling, checking the compost loos and helping to keep us Covid safe (touchpoint!) - This is the ticket that will get you the most high fives! We love you x Spa Crew: We have wood-fired hot tubs and a sauna that need tending - The Spa can be the most special place in the world....women singing in the steam- If you are drawn to the Waters and the Fire for it's Alchemy, you are Spa Crew already :)
Decor set-up/set-down: This requires no work at the festival itself! But you must be available Wednesday 21st 9 am (you can stay the night before), to help get all our gorgeous decorations up! And you'll stick around on Sunday to help get them all back down again. (note: Not turning up on then Wednesday morning will immediately void your ticket)
Set-Down: We love those who stick around to help clean-up. But it's always surprising how few do. So we created a separate ticket for it. You'll have to keep Monday 26th July free (plus, that's when we have our after-festival party, so it's fuuuuuuun)
Build set-up/Maintenance/site crew: N.B. ONLY FOR WOMEN WITH HANDY SKILLS - This is our only free ticket because it requires some serious hands-on work before, during and after the festival - You are Crew - there to help build, maintain and breakdown. At the festival, you are on call if something needs fixing. Badass women need only apply.
Whole festival is fully catered from our amazing kitchen! Pure Vegetarian and as local and organic as possible! Just bring your own bowl, plate and cutlery.
We have a snack shop onsite with tea, cakes and treats
We love our Spa! Hot Tubs, Sauna, showers. Dreamy nights under the moon singing with our sisters.
We decorate our festival with YOUR art. Bring it, hang it, install it. IF you have a large project in mind that involves the whole festival, get in touch! We have a budget for supplies. contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are proudly a carbon negative festival (we plants trees with our profits!) So we encourage as little use of Cars as possible. With this, we say, if a car has only one space free within it - it comes for free! Vehicle passes and camper van passes can be purchased on the ticket site
Land Care We love the land we are on! Please love it with us - We are all rubbish pickers, take rubbish home with you if you can, bring all your own plates, bowls, cutlery and mugs. Don't bring chemical soap to wash with. Walk lightly and with purpose
We are an over 18 festival (teenage girls are allowed, accompanied by a guardian and babes still on the breast i.e. still attached to mum and unable to walk)
We hold WomanFest in a secret location for Security purposes, all ticket holders will be told a month before the Gathering
We try to make the whole festival as accessible as possible to all women - the only two areas that are a struggle are the hot tubs and the Tipi. If you have special needs, please chat to the Tent Mumma's beforehand so we can try to accommodate them - We are all in this together so please read the participation tickets and see where you feel you can offer yourself, talk to the Woman holding that area (they'll be in touch), and we'll work out what's the best way for you. If you require a full-time carer, please get in touch for a Special Discount ticket for them.
