“Glas-Denbury truly is a festival like no other. Never have I ever seen a place that oozes as much magic as this; authentic, friendly and accessible”
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, as it is a county of festivals and events, with glorious towns and villages, stunning scenery from the moors to the sea and full of friendly, creative, 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, in one beautiful green field backed by the majestic Dartmoor, in the vale of Denbury Hilll.
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!
“Sometimes there’s an event that punches a hole in the expected norm,Glas-Denbury does this in spades”
Multi award winning Glas-Denbury is totally independant and has been built from the beginning without the aid of funding or sponsorship – built purely on love, goodwill and a passion for creating something wonderful for the local and wider community to enjoy. It is directed by Emma, a Mum of 5, assisted by a team of amazing people; Mums, Dads, students, Grandparents, young people. 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.
As well as showcasing the best of the South West, we also love bringing in fabulous and quirky artists from all over the UK to entertain and surprise you! From the “Quiet Dream” team that run the festival, to the people on the stages, from the food served to the drink offered at the bars, we want you to be enthralled, mystified, inspired and enlightened and we want to create smiles and happiness in all who come to join us. 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.
We proudly champion all things South West; artists, entertainers, poets, speakers, comedians, workshops, food and drink, production, suppliers and more and we work to a strict sustainability policy as well as ensuring the festival is accessible to all who wish to come and join us.
We offer group discounts (where 10+ adult/teens are purchasing) instalment payments (subject to t&cs) and complimentary carer tickets (on application subject to availability) so grab your family and friends and come and have fun!
Glastonbury may have been built on Ley lines, but Glas-Denbury is built on Love Lines!
“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
