Solstice Gathering 
Celebration in the Wild    


20th - 25th June 2023 

Full 6 day ticket:  £287 
Weekend ticket: £197

Your Ticket is All Inclusive

Spirit Horse has decided to throw the mountain gates open for the summer solstice!


There will be five days of merry gathering, feasting, breathing, sweat lodge, sauna, workshops, drumming, ecstatic dancing, music, One Big Solstice Ritual, poetry, waterfall splashing, mountain walks, fireside revelry and what YOU bring.

At Spirit Horse we all eat from the same feasting table, food cooked with passion and for sharing. No rip off queues or festival traders, just tribe becoming deeper tribe. There will be time to relax, but also deep workshops where you can grow into being a real person. Join the work, join the fun, come to the wild!

Spirit Horse has for more than thirty years been the most spectacular camping ground, wildest retreat place and uncompromising community experiment in Britain. Tickets for this will sell out. We don't do big festivals. Our gatherings are tribal sized - like our ancestors tribes. Intimate and far away from commerce and war.

A mountain paradise of cloud, waterfalls and crystal pools.  This is a place where you will discover new and forgotten parts of yourself.

Celebrate the Sun as it reaches its climax on the longest day of the year. 

A conscious gathering of totally joyous and exuberant celebration. Let glee and exhilaration be your way to pay homage at the Summer Solstice.

Bring  every part of yourself to this festivity! Everyone is included and welcomed with warm embrace.
