BUSHMOOT (Non UKSN Event)
July 31 @ 8:00 am - August 12 @ 5:00 pm
The Bushmoot is an opportunity for individuals and families with an interest in Bushcraft to gather together and expand their knowledge through mutual skill sharing.
The Moot runs for nearly two weeks and you’re welcome to come for all of it or any part you feel like. The main workshop days, we call the ‘Core’ days, are in the middle of the Moot.
It doesn’t matter whether you are experienced or new to bushcraft, everyone is welcome. The days either side of the ‘Core’ are camping days which give individuals the opportunity to practise their Bushcraft skills, attend courses, socialise, visit the local area or just relax and enjoy the natural setting.
The Site is nearly 100 acres, mainly of beautiful woodland with a sandy soil. There are toilets, showers, a washing up area around the edges of the main building and there are a number of fresh water taps away from the main building. You can camp nearly anywhere, there are quiet areas and areas where people stay up a bit longer and are a bit louder – we can point out which direction to go once you’ve arrived.
For 2017 the BushMoot runs from the 1st (31st July for Full Members) to the 12th August and the ‘Core’ of the event (workshops etc) will run from Friday 4th August through to Wednesday 9th. A number of free workshops are held each day on Sat, Sun, Tue and Wed and anyone is welcome to attend, participate or observe (some workshops ask a donation for materials). Monday 7th is a ‘Trading/relaxed Day’ where individuals can set up stalls to sell their wares. We then have a communal meal in the evening from food brought along by attendees ‘Bring a Pot’.
