Whirl-y-Fayre 2019 returns to Netherham Farm and moves to the top of the hill from where we gain unbridled views down the valley of Avalon toward the Tor silhouetted on the horizon. Here we bring you the seventh Whirl-y-Fayre perfect in formation with every element in place and future potential in the making. Whirl-y-Fayre is more than just a small festival and more than just a dance event. From beyond the realms of ordinary reality it connects with the sublime, with each other and with the magic of life. Whirl-y-Fayre is a beautiful gem, a global dance event with humanity at heart, where people of all ages and places can make discoveries and share experience, where we can be free!

At Whirl-y-Fayre, that special ‘something in the air’ is tangible and felt by all, and it binds everything together to produce a complete experience for everyone. Happy happenings also include the Krafty Kids Tent, Robbie’s Psy Art and the expanded Goddess Temple workshops and healing garden. You can rely on Glenda’s bender in our 24 hour Café together with Peter’s bar open from mid-day until 2am.
