8th - 10th July 2022
What is it?
St James Festival is a wonderful opportunity to relax, socialise, chill and meet new friends. To deepen community and relationships in one weekend of fun, games, disco dancing, BBQ food, and engaging with God in a new environment.
You can come for the whole weekend, camp overnight, or just visit during the day. We have tried to keep tickets affordable but we also don't want money to stop anyone from coming. Do contact me directly if you would like some support.
Festival Theme for 2022
Our theme this year is Communion, and it is around this theme that our teaching will be based.
We strongly feel that camping together on a beautiful field in Wiltshire is a great way to do communion, community, and companionship together.
Throughout the weekend, and culminating in our Sunday service together, we look together at what it means to be in communion with one another, with all of creation and with the Creator.
The Venue - NEW for 2022!
This year we are going to be adding a new venue, imaginatively called The Venue, to the festival. The Venue will be open 24/7 and will be a space for prayer, reflection, reading, creativity and connecting with God. There will also be a programme of events, including worship, teaching, prayer, and discussions held in The Venue over the weekend on the Festival theme of Communion.
4 Streams - NEW for 2022!
To make sure you don't miss out on the many things that are going on during the weekend, each event will be identified as being in one of 4 Streams...all you need to do is identify which you want to dip into.
- Active, for the energetic/sporty amongst you (and those who need to burn off some energy before bedtime)
- Creative, for the artist within you (and those who connect whilst being creative)
- Reflective, for those who need some time to sit and be
- Social, for those who fancy a bit of a natter and catch-up
About the tickets
A full list of ticket types can be found on the booking form.
For those who are disabled and coming to the festival on any day please email Steve Carter with any questions or concerns (firstname.lastname@example.org). The centre itself has disabled facilities and is accessible for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. The rest of the site is grass and fairly flat. Parking on tarmac can be arranged.

Day Visitor Parking
You need to enter at the bottom gate. So, ...
If we feel the local or national risks are high in July 2022 we may ask all festival goers to provide evidence of a negative LFT on their day of arrival. We did that in 2021 and everyone was safe.
When I Get There What Do I Do?
Come and find the Brindle tent and grab a wristband and sign in. Just ask for directions to it. If you can’t find it just ask or make yourself comfy, unpack, chat, get a brew or get your chairs out, and we will catch up with you.
Timings Of Events
Those will come out on the day.
The only request we make is that the site be quiet by midnight.
Food & Drinks
Hot Weather Management
You can keep cool inside the centre and sit in the cafe but there is limited shade onsite. Bring your own shelters and gazebos please.
This is a ticket only event. If you come across anyone without a wristband please let us know. We have duty staff onsite between 8.00am and midnight in hi vis jackets. The area is very quiet and peaceful. Please do not bring anything too valuable to the site please.
