Whirl-y-Fayre is more than just a small festival and more than just a dance event. From beyond the realms of ordinary reality it connects with the sublime, with each other and with the magic of life.
Voted Best Family Festival by readers of Green Parent magazine in 2016 and finalist in the NOEA Small Event of the Year Awards, Whirl-y-Fayre has been welcomed by the local community and is fast gaining recognition.
Whirl-y-Fayre will be the best and biggest little festival in 2017 with several exciting new developments. We have more artists, bands and DJs than ever before, who keep the soundtrack alive and together contribute to our one sound 24 hour music programming policy.
Breakfast is with Harp John, Parlour Party Free Stage for the afternoon, Whirl-y-Gig Live Extravaganza in the evening with specially extended Global Disco until 2am on both Friday and Saturday nights (with later bar and more time to settle in for those arriving on Friday). The Café stays open all night with the After Party DJ Chill Zone feeding the vibe until morning.
Krafty Kids Tent, Robbie’s Psy Art, Hubbadillia’s magic pizzas, Spiral Spices, Goddess Temple, Fly Zone, Tipi Lodge, colourful stalls, workshops and a new enlarged Healing Area all help to make life at the Fayre complete. And then there is Somerset cider, homemade cakes, ice cream, log fires and simple intimacy with sun, moon, stars and each other.
Whirl-y-Fayre is a place to feel free and connected. It is an event difficult to describe and a moment impossible to miss.
“the Fayre was absolutely spectacularly amazing, surpassing even my wildest expectations! It will go down as one of the most memorable, stellar weekends of my life. Again congrats on what was a real lesson in positive, intimate festival event organisation. Really, really well done.“
