Our First Event 2016!
July 2016 saw the lauch of this brand new festival in South Devon - and what a fantastic time we all had. The house and grounds of this superb estate provided the perfect setting for us - and we all soaked up the magical atmosphere from beginning to end. With special guests including Sika, Touch the Earth, Barbara Meiklejohn Free, Flavia Kate Peters and many more wonderful exhibitors, the whole place was buzzing with a gentle healing vibration. As we reflect on happy memories, we are also looking forward - and planning for next year has already begun. Thanks to all the amazing volunteers, who put so much time and energy into making the event so special. To those who exhibited and our visitors, thank you too - we have created a special event which now will grow and flourish in the years to come.
About Lupton House
For those who don't already know, Lupton House is a Grade II* listed building set in beautiful parkland. The aim of the Lupton project itself is to create a thriving centre for the wellbeing of the community, community groups, charities and social enterprises which will be financially self-sustainable through a combination of renting space, support, training, social enterprise, volunteering and events. The project is underpinned by an environmentally sustainable plan for the building and grounds which will include minimising the environmental impact of the organisation and those using its facilities. In short, the restoration and refurbishment of Lupton will create a community of hope and opportunity for all who are in need of better health and social support.
Aims of Lupton Holistic Festival
In keeping with the wider aims of The Lupton Trust, this event has been created to offer both exhibitors and visitors alike, the chance to take time out to explore all the amazing things on offer at the festival, and in so doing, further help the trust and its valuable work.
Dates for Next Year
Dates for next year have already been set, and we look forward to welcoming even more visitors in 2017 on August 19th and 20th. We hope that once more, lots of you will join us for this beautiful family festival. Until then - we wish to a happy and healthy year. See you all next August.
Elaine Fenton, Janet Howard and the Lupton Team.
