“Sometimes there’s an event that punches a hole in the expected norm,Glas-Denbury does this in spades”

 

Deep in the depths of the beautiful Devon countryside, a little piece of magic happens every July. Of course all who are familiar with Devon, know that magic runs through the heart of the county in so many ways.  A county of festivals and events, beautiful towns and villages, stunning scenery from the moors to the sea and full of people who have a vision of how the world can be a kinder, happier, safer place. Glas-Denbury brings all of beautiful Devon into one place, one beautiful green field backed by the majestic Dartmoor, under the shadow of Denbury Hill. 2018 sees an almost 100% South West line up of artists, entertainers, poets, workshops, food and drink.
Glastonbury may have been built on Ley lines, but Glas-Denbury is built on Love Lines!
The multi award winning Glas-Denbury is totally independant, run by volunteers including Mums, Dads, Grandparents, young people and even the children get involved! It is self funded, not for profit and a totally non commercial festival. We may not be the biggest festival out there but we have the biggest hearts with which we create an incredibly family friendly, safe, happy, colourful inspirational place.  A nod to the family friendly festivals of yesteryear, Glas-Denbury showcases the best of the South West from its creativity to its food, its businesses to its people. So why not take a trip to our lovely part of the world, come and dance in the daisies, delight in the magic of Glas-Denbury, enjoy a weekend of colour, happiness, music & arts with your family and friends and make some new friends along the way!
 
2018 sees an almost 100% line up of South West music artists, entertainers and workshops.

This was our first family festival, and we had such a brilliant time. There was so much to do for adults and kids (ours are aged 2 & 5), great choice of food, and good camping – loads of space in the family field. In fact, I was v impressed by how uncrowded the whole festival & camping was – ie, there were clearly lots of people, and the atmosphere was great, but there was no cramming in, meaning that kids could leave your side a little and not get out of sight. Staff great too, and the whole thing was exactly as promised – felt very safe & welcoming. Will def be back in 2018!”  Stef – |Glas-Denbury visitor 2017

 

Fantastic little festival. plenty to do for the whole family. a good range of food including vegetarian and vegan options. all of the food vendors were well versed in allergies and we’re very helpful with all our enquiries. Very helpful and polite staff. The toilets were clean which is unheard of at festivals. There were plenty of different acts to cater for pretty much everyone,  but the best thing was that everyone was respectful and cleaned up after themselves. Lots of people enjoying themselves and not over indulging. can’t wait to come back next year” Justin – Glas-Denbury visitor 2017

We want to thank every single person who is a part of Glas-Denbury – the incredible, dedicated and friendliest team around, the supporters and all who have helped us create and run this festival over the years.  The team are extremely passionate about what they do and work incredibly hard to deliver the best experience possible for every single person at the festival, whether they be a guest, artist, member of the crew or supplier. We collaberate with many South West organisations and charities and we are determined to draw people into the region to showcase the best that this beautiful county offers in so many ways.
