We are thrilled to announce Glas-Denbury is a finalist in the SOUTH WEST TOURISM EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2017 in the category “Tourism Event/Festival of the Year”!
“After our silver win at the Devon Tourism Awards we are absolutely over the moon to now have been selected as a fanalist in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2017 for Festival of the Year! This year saw a record 645 entries and so to have made it amongst the Finalists is a huge achievement, especially in Englands Top tourism region! I 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 me create and run this festival over the years. The team and I are extremely passionate about what we do and we 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. We give opportunity to our community, local organisations and charities throughout the year and to have what we do recognised alongside such incredible businesses and organisations is amazing. We are looking forward to the awards ceremony on February 1st and even more looking forward to welcoming everyone to Glas-Denbury ’18 next year!” Emma Twamley – Director. xx
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 know 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.
The award winning Glas-Denbury is created by these such people; people who have a passion for people and life. We may not be the biggest festival out there but we have the biggest hearts with which we create a comfortable, safe, happy, colourful inspirational place. A nod to the family friendly festivals of yesteryear; Glas-Denbury is about the South West, about community; uncommercialised, small and run by real 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 and make some new friends along the way!
So what can you expect from Glas-Denbury’s programme? We showcase some of the South West’s best artists whilst also bringing in fabulous and quirky artists from all over the UK to entertain and surprise you! From the teams that run the festival to the people on the stages, from the food served to the drink offered at the bars, it is simply the best of the South West! We want you to be entertained, enthralled, mystified, inspired and enlightened and we want to create smiles and happiness in all who come to join us. So come and let your hair down and enjoy all the fabulous entertainment and activities we have on site including free workshops, lots of activities and entertainers, performance poetry, crafts and so much more throughout the weekend. Whether you are a family with young children, a family with teenagers, or a group of adults who just want to leave the children at home and come and party, then there really is something for you all.

“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
