Some of you have heard our exciting news, and now we can finally announce it officially… On 15-17th September, we’re bringing together awesome Community Businesses and individuals for a weekend of incredible speakers, business skill-building, hands-on workshops, immersed in an offline world of campfire chats, yoga, music and an all-round sense of community.
Offline Festival is an ‘unconference’ in the countryside.
There are a limited number of Early Bird Tickets and we really want you to benefit from the discounted price. So jump on the opportunity! If you have ideas on how you can get involved, we want to hear from you.
