“Never doubt that a small group of thoughful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has” Margaret Mead, Anthropologist
Deep in the depths of the beautiful Devon countryside, a little piece of magic is being cultivated. 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 magic created by this kind of people, who have a passion for others and life. A cross between a traditional Devon village fayre and a nod to the festivals of yesteryear; uncommercialised, small and personal. Glas-Denbury is the vision of a group of friends who have created and continue to create and develop with a unequivocal passion, a small, wonderful, safe, happy, family friendly music festival in the most beautiful Devon setting. Glas-Denbury is about family, about collaberation, about kindness, about local, about Devon, and above all about people coming together and creating a wonderful place of smiles.
Whether you are a seasoned festival addict or maybe a family just dipping your toes in the festival scene, we are guaranteed to make you smile! We may not be the biggest festival out there but we do have the biggest heart and the most passion about what we are striving to create for you. We can promise you a safe, happy, uplifting event! We are all about local and champion and handpick some of the South West’s best artists and bands, whilst also bringing in fabulous and quirky artists from all over the UK to entertain and surprise you! We want you to be entertained, enthralled, mystified 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.
We are constantly developing the event, slowly and carefully, to create the perfect place for everyone as much as we possibly can. It’s actually impossible to please everyone as we all know, but we will strive to ensure that whoever you are, whatever time you go and whichever stages you choose to see, you will see incredible performers, artists and musicians and come away with a sense of happiness and fulfilment, and a smile on your face! So come dance in the daisies, sing in the sunshine and shake your glittery hips!
Our pledge to the community we exist and are situated in;
Meet Glas-Denbury’s friends! We are passionate about collaberation and support within the community and it is people from all walks of life who come together to plan, build, decorate and run the festival. It is truly awe inspiring to watch what a group of humans can achieve together for the benefit of others.
