OFF-GRID FESTIVAL 2018 Thu 9 August 2018 to Sun 12 August 2018


Hello Off Grid supporters, Spring is in the air!

Tapeley ManorYou’ll notice that this year we have a change of venue and will be hosting Off Grid Festival 2018 at Tapeley Park Estate in North Devon. We’re hoping this will not prove too much of a barrier to our Exeter fans, and that you will tell your friends further North about what Off Grid has to offer!

As ever, Off Grid is a place to come together with like-minded folk, building a sense of community around the idea that ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE. Off Grid’s focus on a shared experience of what a sustainable future might look and feel like is encapsulated in our new holding organisation – The Association of Resilient Living. This new initiative will offer opportunities to get involved with local round-the-year events, so if this sounds like you, read more about us here.

Why the change of venue? Well, although we have loved our two years at the Biophilia Project, they have other commitments this year. We’d like to thank John, the custodian, for the warm welcome he has extended to us and we wish him well with his new ventures. He invites you to keep in touch with the Biophilia Project and pop by for tea sometime.

Our new hosts at Tapeley Park and Gardens in North Devon are perfectly suited to support many of our favourite activities, as well as enabling fresh opportunities. We look forward to adventuring in their ancient woodland, tours of the house and learning from their mature permaculture gardens. We will even get to enjoy some of their organically-grown fruits (and vegetables) in our exciting new Festival Cafe. The estate owner, Hector Christie, is a lifelong social and political activist, but he assures us that his ancestors would approve of what he is doing with the estate!

There’ll be more news about workshops, performers and opportunities for taking part soon.

One last thing, we are now open for your pitches for stalls, workshops, music and volunteering, so if you have a song to share, a venue you can offer, some decor to offer a food stall to bring or a pair of hands to pitch in, you’ll find all the relevant info on the website. If there’s anything we’ve missed, drop a line to Roxy, our Festival Co-Ordinator and she’ll pass you on to the right department.

One Planet Community Festival

 ‘Off Grid’ is a training camp, with four days of essential practical information on off grid living, learning skills and sharing ideas. Many individuals, families, groups, and organisations from the South of England will converge at Off Grid including experts in the fields of Permaculture, Off grid living, Eco building, Land and Food, Renewable Energy, Wellbeing and Community Enterprise. The main focus is to facilitate the growth of strong, co-supportive and resilient communities, through celebration and the art of sharing.

Behind the scenes, Off Grid is designed according to 10 One Planet Living principles inspired by Bioregional and WWF. As well as permaculture ethics and principles.

 Our intention is to encourage both local abundance and global sustainability through a   co-creative process of individual empowerment and capacity building for community   resilience.  Through working closely with associated enterprises in the new economy,   we hope to establish an open source model capable of inspiring a new generation of 100% participatory small festivals.

This year’s event will be held at Tapeley Park and Gardens in North Devon.

The aim is to collaborate to develop a festival where principles and activities can be established that clearly demonstrate Another World is Possible and offer another model of living.

In March and April 2016, we staged a crowdfund campaign that raised the funds to ensure the festival could happen. In doing so we have established a small but growing membership base. Our intention is that this membership will become an advisory and supportive body for our members, establishing a ‘Council’ that will act to ensure the long-term future of these projects.
