SUNRISE CELEBRATION 2018 Fri 17 August 2018 to Sun 19 August 2018


Sunrise is an event that has been recognised time and again winning multiple awards over the years including but not limited to the Guardian and Observer newspapers ‘Ethical Travel Award’, The Shelter award for ‘Most Socially Responsible Festival’ and The Green Parents ‘Best Green Festival Award’.

Sunrise has a plethora of musical styles, inspirational talks, educational workshops, performance art and both spontaneous moments and purposefully provided opportunities to help with spiritual exploration and growth. We will continue with our annual gathering of fun, games and implementation of ideas to better the world for as many years as we can.

Customer Review From 2017

"We absolutely loved it. The location was beautiful, beautiful. Well away from everywhere, woods in all directions, amazing view of the surrounding hills. I can’t imagine anything more ideal!
The size was perfect (I.e., number of people, area m2, etc.). The organisation was ideal. Most of the music was excellent. (Obviously, it’s seldom that a festival will actually replicate one’s vinyl collection…) 
And although it doesn’t need to be said, the feeling and atmosphere was really real!
We are all very, very happy! We can’t wait for next year. 
With very warm regards"
