The Big Unwind
14th 16th JUNE
on  Kelston  Roundhill  in  Somerset

SPIRAL: The Big Unwind is a gathering for people who enjoy the connection between film, music, and nature. This is a winding journey into the self and out towards others, as friends are made and a community grows.

Over two days, an intimate collective of 120 people will meet atop a roundhill to take in the views, dance under the stars, and experience the transporting power of cinema.

The spiral draws a line between the past and the present, the here and now, you and us.

Get twisted.

At the centre of the site is THE STONE BARN where we will gather for films, music and dancing.

Adjourning the main performance space is ROOM 2, a shoeless horizontal screening space and ambient music destination.

On top of the hill and underneath the canopy of a small woodland clump is THE BARROW, a special place high over the rolling hills of south west England.

Getting There

By Car: Parking is limited onsite, so we are asking that everyone car-share if they can. Better for nature, better for petrol costs. Get in touch via e-mail if you'd like help filling any empty seats or if you're looking for a lift.

By Train: Bath Spa is the nearest train station, only 15 minutes by taxi to the festival site.

By Bicycle: If you want to come by bike, you can let us know and we will try to group you with any others doing the same.

Please note: From the turnoff to the Barn from the A431 is a farm track, not tarmac, but is still possible for small cars to do.
