Queer Spirit Summer Festival 2019

The next Queer Spirit Festival takes place August 14-18, 2019

We are building the team, the infrastructure and the energy for the third outing of Queer Spirit Festival so if you feel called to be involved get in touch!

2017 saw the second gathering of Queer spiritual groups and individuals celebrating the passion, love and creative spirit of lgbt+ people. Queer Spirit festival is based on spiritual practice that connects with, respects and supports the earth. We met for five days at a beautiful site in Wiltshire.

The festival featured ceremonies, rituals, workshops, discussions, yoga, tantra, shamanism, healing spaces, drumming, trance dancing, performance, activism, sacred sexuality temple, meditation temple and sacred groves.... plus sauna, cafes, stalls, discos and chill out spaces. 400 fabulous magical queers gathered for five days of colour, connection and community.

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.
