The Glade - Extraordinary Woodland Fun

We have some really extraordinary neighbours in Dartington and The Glade are getting right into the Sea Change spirit with some woodland attractions on Saturday and Sunday.

The Woodland Presents is a not-for-profit social enterprise based in the North Woods on the Dartington Estate, Totnes. They’re here to help people embrace a modern day woodland culture, and one way they do this is by generating extraordinary activities that happen in the woods.

At the off-grid woodland venue ‘The Glade’ they facilitate innovative events, it’s a place to play, learn, relax and reconnect. To support Sea Change, this year they’re going to show us exactly what kind of spectacular things can happen in the woods and it’s FREE ENTRY.

So what’s happening at The Glade? You’re really going to want to go and have a visit for yourself, but they have made some really lush sounding plans, including…

Sat 25th & Sun 26th May 2019
10am - 5pm


+ The Woodland Bar serving you a multitude of drinks
+ Live DJ Sessions spinning an eclectic mix of tunes
+ The Glade Stage hosting some ‘unwritten’ live music
+ The Wild Fig Cafe offering breakfast, lunch and food all day
+ Chai and Coffee Stall making proper decent coffee
+ The Nest Events presenting a mix of unusual and therapeutic workshops


You can chill and unwind in Hammocks or play Games all in the wonderful woods.

Amy Bere, who leads the arts at Dartington, says: ‘We’re really excited to be able to support this flourishing festival alongside our programme of live arts and the world renowned Dartington International Summer School & Festival. Sea Change’s vision and creative values very much align our own commitment to musical excellence and creative curiosity.’

Sea Change partners with Dartington

It is with great pride and excitement that Sea Change announces the third edition of Sea Change Festival will see us partnering with the historically pioneering Dartington Hall estate.

Rupert Morrison, founder of the Sea Change Festival, says: ’Sea Change 2018 reignites a long-standing friendship between Dartington Hall and Totnes, glowing in the embers for nearly one hundred years - built on common interest in art, literature, expression, nature, community and, perhaps most importantly, pushing boundaries. For the first time we’ll be able to offer a large scale space where everyone can congregate and party long into the night. As people who grew up in the area within the orbit of the Dartington College of Arts, we can testify that Dartington sure knows how to throw a party.’

Sea Change’s vision and creative values very much align our own commitment to musical excellence and creative curiosity.’

The partnership opens up an ambitious new chapter for the Sea Change festival (24 - 25 August) – by partnering with Dartington Hall, Sea Change can build its thoughtfully curated boutique festival while growing its audience within the iconic Dartington estate. 2018 is an opportunity to write new names into Dartington's quite immaculate story of guest creators in music, art and culture.

If you have five minutes we highly recond you read the Dartington Who’s Who page on their site as it pure sends chills up our spine.

There will be a new large capacity tent venue on the Dartington Estate that will play host to some remarkable music makers in 2018. This is all just the start and we couldn't be more excited.
