“Passion needs a Platform“
Welcome to the world of Glas-Denbury. My name is Emma – I organise the festival which is located on the edge of the beautiful South Devon village of Denbury, where I live with my 5 children, 2 dogs and 4 cats. Denbury is a wonderful place to live, just 3 miles or so from Newton Abbot one way and 4 miles from the A38 at Ashburton in the middle of the beautiful Devon countryside with Denbury hill proudly overlooking us and protecting the village! A little piece of paradise. The festival is held at the edge of the village on Fairfield Farm, home to a stunning award winning herd of Guernsey Cattle who produce the delicious range of Auntie Moo’s ice cream.
In 2013 I was persuaded to continue to develop Glas-Denbury after having run a successful fundraising music event for Denbury School in 2012. I knew exactly what kind of festival I wanted to create for everyone; I am passionate about life and passionate about people and I feel extremely lucky to live where I live and I wanted to share this with people and showcase the incredible passion and talent the South West produces, in music, arts, poetry, entertainment, food, crafts and so much more. I was determined to make Glas-Denbury a “platform for passion”. Having 5 children I had often found it hard to find places to go where the younger ones would enjoy themselves as much as the older ones and where I as an adult would enjoy myself too so this was a massive starting point for me. I want people of all ages to experience a little bit of magic and meet a bucket load of good human beings! I wanted Grandparents dancing with their grandchildren, parents enjoying it with both their parents and their children and I also wanted to ensure that those that wanted to leave their little people at home would also want to come and party hard without feeling overwhelmed by children everywhere! It is a festival solely produced by me, a Mum, in my crazy, colourful home, where entertaining and wonderful things happen every day (if you have a big family you will understand that!) I am extremely fortunate that the most amazing group of people, who I am privileged to call my friends, all appear about a month before the festival to begin bringing all my plans to life on a field. They appear from all over the village, surrounding area and from afar to be part of the magical Glas-denbury family and it totally bowls me over every year. Our sole mission is to provide a place of joy and happiness for everyone in an old fashioned, traditional way, with a litle bit of festival quirkyness thrown in for good measure. So please – come experience it for yourselves and don’t forget to come and say hello to me and the glorious Glas-Denbury team! Emma xxx

“Anyone who has fond memories of Glasto but can’t face the idea of the crowds and mud with small people, Glas-Denbury might just be the festival for you. Celebrating the South West’s talented musicians, artists, writers and entertainers, it’s a family friendly music festival on green fields. Nominated for several awards, the festival organisers are committed to making it “comfortable, safe, happy and inspirational” – it’s definitely on our list this year.

Review Alex Croft – July 2014
Very informative website with details about each music act made me change my plans for the weekend. I wasn’t disappointed. The reception from all the crew was very welcoming. The layout of the festival made it easy to move around and see all the events. The music was superb. My first visit and I hope it won’t be my last. A very special Saturday from Noon to Midnight. Thank youWe had such a great day. We recommend it to people all the time. Looking forward so much to this years event. Fingers crossed for a sunny weekend again. Thank you guys.

Meet Glas-Denbury’s Guardians. These wonderful people are as passionate as we are about community, collaboration and support and it is these people who make up our crew. From all walks of life they give up their time to come together to support, plan, build, decorate and run the festival.
It is truly awe inspiring to watch what a group of kind human beings can achieve together for the benefit of others.
Our pledge to the community we exist and are situated in;
