Together 2018 workshops: Meditation

If you can breathe, you can meditate. And it feels more powerful when whole groups get together as a community (traditionally called a sangha).

To celebrate our temporary Together weekend community we are planning a mass meditation with Jem Shackleton at the main stage on Saturday morning. So come along, stop, breathe and tune into a sense of belonging, friendship and community.

Jem will also be offering a workshop for adults who wish to practice during the weekend. These will be simple breathing with compassion practise.

Whether you’ve never sat on a cushion before or just got back from a 5-year retreat in Tibet: all levels of experience are welcomed. You just have to be there. 

Check out the schedule will send round before the festival and board on site to make sure you don't miss it. 

Jem will also be running a workshop for children. Through plenty of fun activities, we will explore ways to engage and focus the attention.

Theme for Together 2018

<trumpets> bah bah bah BAH! <trumpets>

Ibrahim is here to announce the theme for Together 2018. 

Come as your ultimate hero, your legend, your all-time superstar, your inspiration!

Your hero doesn’t have to be a certified superhero, or a Greek legend (but of course it totally can be). They can be anyone from Johnny Cash to Noam Chomsky, Nenah Cherry to your nan...it doesn't even have to be your actual real-life hero. 

We know you lot love an excuse to dress up and we hope you work this one to the max! 

 The winning theme is...&nbsp;HEROES!

We're banning non-compostable plastics straws and cups at Together 2018

We’ve seen your concerns (and the planets!) about plastic packaging and we are banning plastic straws and non-compostable plastic cups at Together 2018.

We’re very aware of Together’s beautiful surroundings and we’re constantly looking for ways to reduce impact on the environment - eco toilets, eco spa, reusing your cups, compostable packaging and using local suppliers and services where possible.

This year we are going a step further to reduce plastic on site, we’re banning plastic straws and non-compostable plastic cups.

  • There will be a 10p (compostable) plastic cup tax if you don’t have your own cup.
  • We’ll waive the 10p if you bring back your previous cup to reuse
  • We’ll pay 5p per cup for any returned for composting

We hope you are all behind this decision. 

You can bring your own cup or order one of our beautiful steel Together cups that you can use again and again on site and for years afterwards.

Lots of you have told us cold drinks taste better in them, they keep your pint colder for longer, are made from 90% recycled steel, support skills, jobs and industry in Sheffield.

Plus they’re a little cheaper to order in advance so if you haven’t already.

You can order yours from our ticket page to collect when you arrive here.

We’ll be supplying eco washing up liquid at the sink in the camping field.

 

We're recruiting volunteers for Together 2018!

Together just wouldn't be possible without a team of amazing volunteers. 

Fancy joining our all volunteer crew to help make it another unforgettable party at Together 2018 (3rd-5th August 2018)?

We need support with box office, welcoming, bar and café work and there are also opportunities to help us set up in advance of the event if you can spare a weekend in the run up wich means you could have the whole of your Together weekend free!  

In exchange for your shifts and hardwork you'll get free entry to our mega party.

On top of that, you'll get to work alongside a group of the loveliest folk known to humanity.

Already got a ticket but fancy rolling up your sleeves? We can find you much smaller (but equally as vital) jobs to do.

 Get in touch with Steve or Emma ASAP if you fancy getting involved.

We need your help - what's the theme for 2018?

Together has raised over £35,000 for Awamu's work in Kampala - thank you. We're hoping to smash all expectations by laying on even more fun, frolicking and fund-raving next August at Together 2018.

But we need your help! We know many of you love an excuse to dress up and enjoy a theme to inspire your outfits.

We’ve been loving look back at the pictures of ‘When I grow up’ in 2016 and ‘Safari’ last years – what shall we have this year?

Share your theme suggestions on our facebook post, the only criteria is that it is suitable for all the family.

Inevitably the best suggestions will come from our younger party goers so please ask them for their suggestions. We'll put them to the vote and the winning theme will get an age appropriate prize. 

See all the photos and videos from the last two years here.
