    Cnayl Rainbow - Techie

    I believe the energies and sounds that music and lighting bring are an incredibly healing and magical thing that really shine out at festivals and really enjoy helping to bring that magic to Queer Spirit.

    The Queer Spirit Healing Area

    It is our intention to create a dedicated quiet space where treatments can be offered with a garden that festival goers can retreat to if they need time out or to reflect.

    We know that our community has many amazing therapists and we would like to invite those interested to offer your treatments. We will supply a space and a couch and it is up to you how much you charge and when you choose to work. The Information Team will manage the booking of the space and in return for their support and the use of the space we ask that you donate 20% of your takings to the festival.

    If you wish to offer treatments at the festival you will need to apply in advance, the application form is below. You will need to purchase a ticket for the festival or have a workers ticket, being accepted as a therapist does NOT give you a ticket.

    Like past years the Healing Dome will also be used for a daily sharing circle and a 12 step meeting. The sharing circle will be 10:00 till noon Thursday to Sunday and the 12 step meeting from 6pm onwards. We don’t yet have anybody to run the 12 step meetings, if you feel called to do this then contact Mary who is coordinating the area. This email address is being protected from spambots.

    Guidelines for Traders

    We ask that all people we accept to the festival to offer goods / food for sale agree to these guidelines. Please note these are in addition to the general terms and conditions (agreed to by all those attending the festival) that we expect you to read and agree to also.

    The festival is open to the public from 2pm on Wednesday 14 August and we are expecting around 500 people on site, some of whom will be under the age of 18. We are looking for traders that we feel support the Queer Spirit ethos both around being an LGBTQI+ festival and also around respect for the Earth.

    If we accept your request to trade at the festival, you will need to purchase at least one standard adult ticket to confirm your place and agree to pay us 10% of your takings. You also agree to the following:

    1. You must only trade items that were approved from your application. Subletting any part of your stall / pitch is not allowed.
    2. Public liability insurance is your own responsibility.
    3. You will bring your own structure(s) to create your stall which you will let us know the details of as part of your application – ideally a photo of it would help (both for us to arrange the trading area plus we may use it on the website and in publicity.)
    4. You agree to giving any access required by the site inspection team if they need to inspect your structure.
    5. No electrical power will be provided for you and no generators of any kind are allowed on site unless approved by our site manager, so if you wish us to consider allowing you to provide your own solar generator you must inform us of this as part of your application.
