Festival Fun For All The family: NVC Summerfest 2018

An intimate, family-oriented festival with Nonviolent Communication as a core value.  Supporting you to develop tools for resolving conflict in your family and community: Let’s create a world where everyone’s needs matter.

Summerfest 2018

We’re delighted to confirm the dates, Tuesday 31 July — Sunday 5 August, 2018.

We’ll be at a new venue, Critchill Manor Estate, two miles from Frome, Somerset, BA11 4LJ. The venue has a wild swimming lake and of course a sauna. Yeah!

To give you an idea of what to expect at Summerfest 2018, here are some impressions from Summerfest 2017. It was a really lovely, lively, and intense time. We were 50 people — a community that shared our ups and downs for six days. We really enjoyed how we got to know each other, getting closer and closer, day by day. We had lots of fun activities for the kids, e.g. playing games, handicrafts, reading stories, a water slope, popcorn and badge-making, a treasure hunt, body painting, swinging, swimming in the river, playing, and running carefree in the camp area. And we had fun activities for all ages, like singing, dancing, games, sitting around the bonfire and in the sauna and of course the No-Need-For-Talent Show.

Our coordinating team of seven people worked well together. They made the NVC Summerfest possible! We’re looking forward to working together again.
