Naked Angel I still can't see it. What left-hand box? Can you give a direct link to the file please? (The one that was emailed out earlier this evening went to a donation page and not to the PDF.) 10 months ago

Buzzy Ah, it seems the link isn't working for some reason, it should have taken you to the page you can get to by just clicking 'Festival' on the main menu 10 months ago

Naked Angel Thank you! I couldn't see the image of the programme on my MacBook, either in Chrome or Safari. I did find the link on my Android phone. I have managed to download the file now and am in the process of printing it. Thanks again for sorting it. 10 months ago

What time is the Opening Ceremony in the Big Top? The Day-by-Day listing gives the start time as 7pm. The Location and Theme listings give it as 8pm.

Buzzy Thanks for pointing that out! I have updated it now so they should all be showing the same time, which is that we gather in the big top at 7pm 10 months ago

Buzzy The PDF is a copy of the printed programme that will be given out at the festival and as it's already being printed I thought best to keep them in sync. Don't worry though, we will make it very clear at the festival with signs and other means, when things start etc. The best option, if you can, is to take timings from the Day by Day page as the aim is to keep that as up-to-date as we possibly can. 10 months ago

I notice that the Playfight Ritual (Sunday, 16:00, Temple) has disappeared from the listing. Has it been renamed or moved to another location or... Show more

Buzzy Unfortunately the person that was leading that has had to pull out so that workshop won't take place now. 10 months ago

I was interested in the "Forest Bathing" workshop, which is to be held in the Women's Area. I contacted the workshop facilitator, asking whether I...

  • About me
    It was only by chance that I went to the Queer Spirit Festival in 2017. I generally go to the Buddhafield Festival every year but that year it clashed with two Circle Dance events I'd already committed to, so I looked around for another festival with a similar openness, a similar vibe and a spiritual dimension, and one where I could go naked - something I'm used to doing at Buddhafield. And I found Queer Spirit. It changed me completely.

    Although I regarded myself as bisexual, I'd not been to an LGBTQ+ festival before and I didn't know quite what to expect. But as soon as I got to the festival site I felt like I'd come home.

    The Festival blended spirituality, sexuality and ecology into a wonderful, all-embracing philosophy and way of being - a kind of queer paganism for the modern world - and sex was celebrated as something wonderful and sacred. It was a philosophy that really appealed to me, and I embraced it wholeheartedly.

    Many of the festivalgoers called themselves Faeries, and I saw a reflection of myself in them. (Hey, they're like me! I'm like them!) I knew that I'd found my tribe, and I saw my true queer nature clearly for the first time. I suddenly realised my nonbinariness too, something that had been staring me in the face for some time but I'd been blind to.

    My relationship to sex changed overnight. I surprised myself by my total lack of inhibition as I entered the Sacred Sexuality Temple for the first time, unconcernedly undressed once inside, and readily welcomed the invitation of two guys I'd never met before to engage in sex play and oral and anal sex.

    And I fell in love. The love affair was all too brief but it was unforgettable, and my lover will always have a special place in my heart.

    Since Queer Spirit, I have been to many Faerie and Queer Spirit events, including Faerie Gatherings in Glastonbury, a Retreat, two Love Rites and a number of Drum Circles in London where I have danced naked to the hypnotic rhythms of the drums. I also want to take part in Drum Circles as a drummer; I now have my own Djembe, which I am currently learning to play.

    Covid-19 imposed on me an unwelcome and frustrating solitude and celibacy, and I am glad that I am now able to rejoin a newly burgeoning Faerie/Queer Spirit world once again.

    I love the Faerie/Queer Spirit all-embracing philosophy and I feel blest that I can go naked at so many events. I am myself, pure and simple, in mind, body and spirit, when I am naked. And it has given rise to my Faerie name of Naked Angel. When I'm feeling regal, I'm Andromeda, Queen of the Naked Angels.

    Thanks to QS17, I've made many beautiful friends and enjoyed sharing their company, sometimes intimately, a privilege and a joy that I treasure.

    I want to thank everybody for making me so welcome, and I hope to remain part of your World for many years to come.
