A Gathering of the Heart
Dear Colourfest Community
Dear Colourfest Community
We hope this finds you well and navigating these unchartered waters with creative openness, presence and deep care.
We appreciate that this may be a tough time as we may have loved ones or friends who are close to us deeply affected by this. For many of us, we are having our sense of stability shaken financially and socially, as well as impacting our familiar patterns of lifestyle.
After watching the unfolding of events within the last couple of weeks leading to self isolation, news of the peak of the curve in cases determined and laws banning large events we are sad to say that we will have to cancel our event in June.
Financially we are going to take a big hit as many of the cost and deposits already incurred cannot be recovered and it’s still unclear what support, if any, maybe offered by government. At this point, we are uncertain whether we will be able to sustain Colourfest going forward.
We appreciate we all face similar challenges and we will go ahead and refund the full ticket price to you less a booking fee of 15%. This booking fee will help us some way recover some of what will be lost and hope that business support, when it becomes clear, will help see us through. Paypal fee’s are also no longer refundable and stand at 3.4% + £0.20.
We will start to process refunds from Monday 30th March.
We want to thank you for the kindness that you have all shown us and to all the artists and tutors that made plans to be with us and all you who have bought tickets.
This has brought the world to an enforced stopping, in a way that not many other things would have had the capacity to do. In any shift of momentum often comes self-reflection, and with inner space, if we are able to listen deeply enough, can come huge growth and evolutionary opportunities. Amongst the chaos and uncertainty we both feel inspired, deeply alive, even fuller of gratitude and full of energy to meet what may continue to unfold.
We wish you much love and wellbeing and may we all together move from our deepest truths and knowing.

Colourfest returns to the beautiful Gaunts House
Set in the heart of the Dorset countryside amongst open landscapes, stunning vistas and ancient trees, Gaunts House has on site accommodation & an outside pool.
Oh Freedom, my elusive friend.
How many times must I search for you
only to return empty-handed?
Standing, broken open amongst fragments of discarded dreams.
Ceaselessly working for the moment that never arrives.
Little did I realise this was your gift to me.
Now, amongst friends, let us gather here;
we, those who are called,
and sit once more.
Let arrogance fade away.
For the dancer is still dancing among the wreckage, and the subtle is an open door.
Dream your festival
Good words – Good people

A Truly Heart Opening festival. Get lost within...and find yourself. With Yoga, Dance, Music and Meditation. The perfect mix of Stillness and Movement. Set deep in idyllic Dorset countryside, filled with Beautiful people, this is a gathering not to be missed.If you feel the call, listen to it and follow!...
I wanted to say a huge thank you for a brilliant festival. I told many of my friends about this event who had never been before and they where all really happy and said they would come back next year fro sure and actually 2 of them (who are experienced festival goers) said it was the BEST festival
The last five days have been manic, beautiful, emotional, busy, full of hugs, dancing, no phone or internet, friends, glued to a radio, and loved every minute helping co-ordinate stewards for colourfest. I love this conscious festival and the addition of the woodland dance space, epic.
