The One World Festival is a summer event in Somerset that brings together individuals and families from all over the world to share in a unique atmosphere of rest and activity, fun and freedom, challenge and adventure.

The One World Festival presents over 200 workshops and lectures throughout the week, with separate activity programs for teens and children of all age groups. All teachers are dedicated and experienced in a range of therapies, natural movement and dance forms, exercise for physical and spiritual development, holistic health, arts, crafts and sports, as well as in specialist areas such as Natural Cookery.

Quote of the day

« I can say that the best things about the workcamp and this whole experience were the chance of making a real difference to the lives of very needy children. This is an extremely valuable project where volunteers can have a massive impact. Also the possibility of learning a huge amount about a country so different from our own. I learnt ten times as much by carrying out a workcamp than I would ever do backpacking. »
