Queer Spirit Summer Festival
Wednesday 26 - Sunday 30 July 2017 in Wiltshire, UK
The second gathering of Queer spiritual groups and individuals celebrating the passion, love and creative spirit of lgbtqi people. Queer Spirit festival is based on spiritual practice that connects with, respects and supports the earth.
The festival will include ceremonies, rituals, workshops, discussions, yoga, tantra, shamanism, healing-spaces, drumming, dancing and more with the idea that participants will be able to "dip their toes" into a wide range of different groups, workshops, activities and rituals.
Children are welcome but are the responsibility of their parent or guardian. There will be lots do to for people of all ages and abilities. There will be some specific adult-only areas at the festival.
We will have camping for up to 500 people with cabaret tent, community village, arts, music, magic, chill zone, cafe's (vegetarian & vegan), stalls, sauna, and so much more!
There are plenty of workshop spaces, cafe spaces, chill-out spaces and a huge marquee for you to be out of any rain, but don't worry, there will be sun! And it will be glorious!
Please note that pets cannot be accommodated on this site.

Car park ticket to encourage car sharing and as part of the green ethos of the festival this year there is a small charge per car (no matter how many people in the car.)
Live in vehicles we have some space for live-in vehicles on site. Please be aware that you will only be allowed to bring your vehicle on site if you have purchased the additional live-in vehicle ticket pass along with your main ticket(s).
Glamping options if bringing a tent is difficult for you, or you just like the idea of camping in a marvellous dome, we have a small number of glamping spaces available in the main camp area. The glamping option needs to be purchased in addition to your standard tickets and gives you a structure fitted out with carpet, two single beds with bedding and lighting. Extra futons may be available if you let us know in advance.
When you arrive, our stewards will be available to let you know about the different camping areas and can help you find them.
Main camp site the main camping area is a short walk from the car park and has plenty of room for everyone! The main fire space is located towards one end of this area and we will have ceremonies, rituals, singing and chilling here.
Community camp areas located in the main camp site some groups will create mini-community spaces and you are welcome to camp with any of them.
Camping with children we have an area designated for those that are camping with children.

Food and drink
We will have cafés serving a fabulous range of vegetarian and vegan food along with stalls in the market area selling interesting food and snacks. There will not be any bar on site. You are more than welcome to bring your own food and drinks and self cater. We do ask you to only cook on gas stoves or barbecues that are off the ground (full information about food and drink can be found in the terms and conditions.)
We will have an amazing selection of workshops and other events going on - read all about it on the What's on page.
Getting to the festival
We encourage everyone coming to Queer Spirit to look to ways to minimize the environmental impact of their travel. Car shares, use of public transport and carbon offsetting can be ways to do that.
A map and travel information can be found on the Festival location page. If you view this page and allow it to share your location, it can give you travel directions.
