We’re all here because we believe there is a need for a new community, led by its members - one which can grow into a vibrant ecosystem where people can come together to share common interests, passions, ethics and motivations, whether related to work or play. We aim to provide an environment where members can facilitate personal and social change, free of many of the restrictions and machinations associated with commercial interests.

Campfire aims to put on a series of events, inspired and co-ordinated by its members, ranging from one night debates through to weekend jamborees.

We celebrated our launch this year with a new style of camping weekend, built around the inspiration of campfire, storytelling, networking and sharing knowledge.

Campfire Convention 001.UK took place in the beautiful spot in the Golden Valley on the English side of The Black Mountains (just a few miles from the original and inspirational first Big Chill Gala event which created history 21 years ago) and utilised one of the most spectacular pub settings in the UK, surrounded by a stream and open fields leading to the Cat's Back and the foothills leading to Offa's Dyke.
