Shambala Festival news: The Shambala woodland!

Latest update from Shambala Festival

When we launched our Bring A Cup campaign last year, we offered cup-buyers the chance to add a few pounds on to the cost of the cup, to go towards tree-planting.

Thanks to these donations, we were to plant the ‘Shambala Copse’ – 165 native trees, to help reforest our countryside. The State of Nature report in 2016 revealed over half of Britain’s wildlife species are in decline, and even though the UK has lost so much forest cover, we still have one of the lowest levels of reforestation in Europe. Planting trees is essential if we are to support wildlife, rewild our countryside and combat climate change.

The site is in the beautiful Chew Valley, 10 miles south of Shambala HQ in Bristol. Making up the Shambala Copse is a range of Aspen, Alder, Rowan, Silver Birch, Downy Birch, Common Crab Apple, Wild Cherry, Hornbeam, Beech and Bird Cherry.

As we planted we dedicated trees to loved and lost crew members and memories made at Shambala.

As a living breathing representation of the acts of kindness practised by Shambalans, it is hoped we will return over the next few years to look after, cherish and enjoy this special spot. A heartfelt thank you to all who donated towards this initiative.
