Somersault bills itself as not just another music festival. Organisers plan to offer every ounce of what a summer holiday was once about, from under-canvas encampments of crafts & workshops, and culture to circus shows and theatre, to fun-fuelled campfire feasts, field kitchens with the best new chefs, midnight parties, and fireside festivities by night.
Campers can enjoy surf trips to nearby Woolacombe, as well as trying their hands at handplaning, coasteering, wind surfing, kite surfing, sailing, canoeing and paddleboarding.
Back on dry land, activities include horse riding, trekking, moor running and mountain biking on nearby Exmoor, plus falconry, archery, yoga, photography, circus skills and more.
Somersault Festival’s nominated charity is Surfers Against Sewage - an environmental charity protecting the UK’s oceans, waves and beaches for all to enjoy safely and sustainably, via community action, campaigning, volunteering, conservation, education and scientific research.
