The Gathering 2003 – 2016…

After much consideration we have decided to discontinue holding this annual event at Tapeley Park.

The Gathering has been a wonderful 14 year journey, but we feel it has now run it’s natural course. We want to leave it positive rather than letting it turn into something that no longer represents the ethos that it started with.

We never intended to let the weekend become a cheap holiday for people with no real interest in the didjeridu, and feel that it was heading that way.

The time feels absolutely right for an exciting new beginning focusing back on the wonderful instrument that is the didjeridu.

The new event will be at a different venue in Devon, which we have been working towards for quite some time, and hope to announce details soon.

We also still intend to use the first May bank holiday weekend as usual, so please remember to keep those dates free in your diary.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported The Gathering over the past 14 years, whether performers, workshop facilitators, crew or most importantly all of the people that bought tickets and supported the event, without you it would not have happened.

Thank you all very much, you have created very fond memories for a lot of souls!

We’d also like to say a very special thank you to Hector Christie of Tapeley Park for allowing us to hold this great wee event over the years in his stunning country park. We’ve met some incredible characters and had some very special times.

If you love the didjeridu then we hope you are going to enjoy what we do next.

We are looking forward to a new and exciting project, and will keep you posted as things evolve and develop.
See you in 2017

Ant, Lin & The Crew
