Landworkers’ Alliance AGM & Winter ShindigFri 22nd Nov – Mon 25th NovCastle Head Field Studies Centre, Grange over Sands, Cumbria, LA11 6QT https://www.field-studies-council.org/centres/castlehead.aspx
Landworkers’ Alliance are a grassroots organisation supporting small scale farmers, growers and land-based workers on both a practical (education) and political (lobbying and policy making) level across the UK.
For our AGM and winter weekend party we will; share stories, feast on amazing local food, sample local ales, discuss important political issues relevant to landworkers, undertake workshops, hear storytelling, watch films, make friends, visit local farms & projects and have a cracking dance to fabulous local band Diddley Squat. The ticket includes full board and we have a designated kids space if you would like to bring your children.
Our annual AGM is hosted in a different region each year to try ensure we have a good presence across the UK and to support regional activity at a local level. For us our AGM is our most important event for members every year as it’s a way to bring people together from across the UK, collectively set our work agenda for the following year, organise skill shares, elect our coordinating group, build and strengthen our movement and of course have fun together!

Full weekend tickets are available to Landworkers’ Alliance members only. You can sign up to be a member here: https://landworkersalliance.org.uk/membership-levels/

The Saturday night ticket from 5pm includes debates about the future land-use of the uplands, a delicious feast and knees-up band Diddley Squat.
If you are a supporter member and would like a full weekend ticket, you can sign-up to be on my waiting list and we will let you know nearer the time if there is space.
