Spiritual Community Camp Gathering
The Wessex Gathering is not a festival, but a camp focused on inviting people to come together over a long weekend and develop a community.
We welcome pagans of all streams and traditions, who come with good hearts and intentions. There is a definite feeling of a meeting of the clans and long lasting friendships have been formed at the gatherings.
Safe Environment For All The Family
Children play an important part of the community at the Gatherings and are welcome.
The environment we develop is a safe one for all. Everyone looks out for each other, making sure people are welcomed and looked after, sometimes fed and watered, lifts shared and so on.
Supporting Dorset Wildlife Rescue
Another important feature of the camp is the support we give to Dorset Wildlife Rescue; which is run by Nick and Sandi Ridge. These two lovely people rescue, care for and release injured wild animals from all over Dorset.
We hold a raffle on the Sunday afternoon to help raise funds for their work. Gatherers and stall holders are requested to donate items for prizes.
