We party with purpose

First, a few words from Florence who joined us from Kampala:

Wow! I’m so impressed by the hard work put in by everyone involved.
Together has bought so many different people together in one place – connecting through music and through actions of the heart to my community in Kampala.
I hope we can grow the Together family that you have created - thank you for making me feel part of your family.

It is with hearts full of gratitude and admiration and that we can announce that you have (once again!) helped to raise over £20,000 for Awamu’s work in Uganda.

These life-changing funds will be put straight to work in Kampala, making sure children like Mirembe Tracy get an education, are healthy (not hungry!) and be part of a family that loves them.

A massive thank you to everyone who helped to make Together 2018 such a memorable weekend.

And, because we also want to give back to the community where we hold Together, we gave all our left-over food and drink to the brilliant One Can Trust food bank in High Wycombe and will shortly be making a donation to their work helping people who need emergency food aid in the local area.

Webale Nyo (Means 'Thank you very much in L'uganda') 

Big love from everyone at Together and Awamu

Samizdat - too much boogie Together mix

BARRELHOUSE.jpg

Let us take you back... way, way, back...

Everybody's got the boogie and always has!

The boogie, along with the stomp and the Cuban clave, formed the foundations of much of the music we listen and dance to today.

Beat-up barrelhouse pianos were being pounded in the Louisiana bayou and in Texas back in the 1870s, Beethoven channelled the boogie as far back as the 1820s and exploded in the 1940s.

Aural historian and selector Samizdat has made us this special mix - a rocking and rolling excursion through the 1940s to the 1960s, from Memphis to Skaville on a steam-driven boogie train.

Look out for more gems from his extensive vaults at Together 2018.

 

 

Together 2018 workshop: Yoga with Abby Worth

The amazing and bendy Abby Worth will be back with at Together this year to lead our morning yoga classes in the great outdoors.

Abby's classes are open to anyone and everyone, kids and grown-ups.

Expect a nourishing, down-to-earth yoga flow with a focus on the breath and some sweet, sweet muscle releases. Perfect to get the body energised and radiant for the day ahead (and for soothing any sore heads from the night before).

All levels and ages very welcome.

Bring your mat or blanket and meet at the main stage at 10.00am.
