Latest update from Shambala Festival

We’ve just received the most amazing Christmas present! We’re over the moon to announce that Shambala is the first and only festival to have achieved a five star Creative Green industry certification.

This certification takes into account all aspects of an event’s environmental performance. Previously, we had achieved 4 stars, which in itself is something to be very proud of but we were determined to take it to the next level in 2017 and aim for that elusive fifth star.

We’ve worked hard toward this for several years, and it’s testament to the whole festival team, innovative and committed contractors, the food stalls we work with and our brilliant audience, working together. Shambala is about doing things right and pushing the boundaries. It’s great to be recognised but the story is far from over. Every one of us, in whatever way we can, must take active steps to co-create the future we want to be part of – let’s keep pushing! x

Shambala Festival

Keen to do your bit to help your local community, but not sure where to start? We've put together a handy guide.

There are heaps of organisations and charities that need your help - whether it's through becoming an NHS volunteer, supporting your local food banks, helping keep local independent businesses (or your favourite boozer!) afloat, or signing up to be a check-in-and-chat volunteer for folks that are struggling with loneliness.

www.shambalafestival.org/adventures/how-to-safely-help-your-community-during-the-covid-19-pandemic/

We intend to update this guide regularly, so if you've got any leads for (reliable, factchecked and safe) ways to make a difference, drop us a line and tell us all about them!

Stay safe, wash yer hands, look after each other.

  1. what does that even mean ” a five star Creative Green industry certification”? its just silly modern hokum made up in some office brain storming session somewhere so you can wear it like a badge. what do you want? a cake? or a badge? maybe a hat you can wear it when you go shopping so people know that you like the world n that.

  2. Well done Team Shambala! This must have taken a LOT of work, remember to take a moment to be proud of this achievement before you battle on with the next phase. Big love. 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

  3. I think I remember very well the year this all started lol and I wish I could remember who I remember.. All I remember is we hung out at CAT.. nd then you said this was happening.. and wow..look at you now. I’m going to apply to do a dance/movement workshop actually.. you better let me… I know you… 😉

  4. Fantastic! You deserve this recognition for the effort you have made towards being a more environmentally-friendly festival.

    Please can I ask what you guys think about glitter? I’ve never seen you promote the use of non-biodegradable glitter, but I’m really interested to know your thoughts about the use of it at Shambala.
