8th — 11th
Time and space for the soul, for the benefit of society.
In the spirit of both a retreat and an adventure, The Realisation Festival arises from a conviction that we live at a critical juncture; a time of reckoning that we need to experience more deeply and reflect on candidly, carefully and courageously. FIND OUT MORE
Since we are what we eat, food at the festival will play a central role. Made from seasonal ingredients sourced as locally as possible, much of the food will be cooked over a specially constructed fire pit. This will be lit in a ceremony on Thursday evening to kick off the weekend’s proceedings and remain lit throughout, providing a gathering point for guests at all times. Meals will be served informally on sharing platters and take place at long feasting tables, outside when possible, and will be plant-led with locally sourced meat and fish options. The kitchen team will be led by Nicole Pisani, former Head Chef of Nopi Restaurant, and Executive Chef and co-founder of charity Chefs in Schools.
We are inviting a small group to be part of the first festival to help shape and evolve it, with a view to growing in subsequent years and developing a programme of festival-related activities throughout the year. We are asking participants to contribute towards accommodation, food, drink, speakers and events in the first year, with some bursaries available. Would you like to be part of it? BUY A TICKET
