Global Village Peace Gathering takes place each year on the 2nd weekend in July.

The Global Village Collective was founded in early January 2005. The Collective is a Not-For-Profit organisation and is made up of people who are engaged in a variety of creative intiatives ranging from music, writing, poetry and theatre to audio electronics engineering, ecological architecture, digital art, sculpture, web design, green energy and organic land management.

What brings us together as a group is the unifying belief in:

We come together to share skills and work together, developing many different projects. Our first project was to set up an annual event, a gathering of music, arts, talks and workshops, an event where we could all get together and experiment with new ideas, new structures, enjoy some cutting-edge music and culture and have a great weekend chilling out with like-minded people in beautiful surroundings. This event has since developed into what became known as the Global Village Peace Gathering.

The Collective are currently looking into becoming a registered Co-Operative

GVPG 2007, which takes place on the 13th, 14th, 15th July, will be our third annual Gathering.

"This was one of the highlights of last summer for me. Went with a friend with the original intention of just going for the Friday night to see the Bays. Thought we might as well throw tents etc in the back of the car just in case.. ...ended up having leaving on Sunday evening as we had prior commitments, would have loved to have stayed until Monday. Fabulous atmosphere, great location, very fine music and met some lovely people - I seriously cannot recommend this enough "

"Organising the first Global Village Peace Gathering, last July [2005], was incredibly hard work and very frantic at times but it was well worth it - glorious weather, an amazing atmosphere and a wonderful gathering of lovely people. So, encouraged by lots of positive feedback, we're planning an even better Global Village Peace Gathering this summer. We'll be booking a wider range of musicians and singers and a full programme for the acoustic tent. There'll be more workshops, for both children and adults. We want to include more poetry, video and film, and have a dedicated children's area. We also want to create a healing area. But most of all, we want you - all you creative, peaceful, fun loving, happy people. The Global Village Peace Gathering is all about coming together and making it happen. So come prepared to relax, laugh, re-energise, create, dance, make new friends and be entertained at the one and only Global Village Peace Gathering!"  - Rosemary
