“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 we all know that magic runs through the heart of Devon in so many ways, with so many festivals and events, beautiful towns and villages, stunning scenery from the moors to the sea. We know there are people, especially in Devon, who have a vision of how the world could be a kinder, happier, safer place. Glas-Denbury is created by these such people, people who have a passion for others and life. Whether you are a seasoned festival addict or are just dipping your toes in the festival scene Glas-Denbury has something for everyone! We may not be the biggest festival out there but we like it just as it is – comfortable, safe, happy, inspirational and the team who run it have the biggest hearts and the most passion about what they are creating for you.
A nod to the family friendly festivals of yesteryear; uncommercialised, small and run by real people! A wonderful,safe, happy, family friendly music festival in the most beautiful South Devon setting. Glas-Denbury is about community, local, collaboration and giving people a chance, about family, kindness and about Devon, but above all about people coming together and creating a wonderful place to nourish our souls and create some smiles. 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 and enjoy a weekend of colour, happiness, music & arts and make some new friends along the way!
Glas-Denbury is all about the South West. 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 all the best of the South West! We want you to be entertained, enthralled, mystified, inspired and enlightened. We want to create smiles and happiness over everyone who steps foot through our gates and give you a weekend that you wish could go on forever. We enjoy breaking the boundaries between the audience and performers as it is ultimately the artists and the audience that create the festival – we just stage it for you all! 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
“I’d just like to say a massive thank you to all for helping create such a spectacular and wonderful experience. It was fantastic to see so many old faces and new, and to be a part of it all. Of all the festivals I’ve worked this has been by far the most enjoyable, from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave there is such a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. I was simply blown away by superb array of talent, and by the opportunities offered for those new or growing in their profession. GlasDenbury has such beautiful and empowering underlining qualities and I can’t wait to continue to see it develop and be a part of it all again. Thank you all again for the hard work and time you put into this. Much love to you all!! ” Dryad Oak – Volunteer Team Member 2017
