Join us around the campfire while we share stories from our travels as well as some delicious camping snacks.

Andrea, our new Facilities Manager, has just returned from a 3-month bicycle trip around Europe and would like to share some of her anecdotes. Please bring along some of the memories and reflections you would like to share, as well.

We would like to re-create a cozy campfire gathering right in our garden (if the weather allows), and exchange stories and songs that enriched our lives whilst travelling.

As we’re moving into the colder months, awaiting for spring and summer to return, this community huddle will hopefully bring some warmth and motivation to pack our bags and hit the road, in search of freedom, happiness, and openness to new friendships and adventures.


About Donations: 

Participation in our community-led events is often on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However, any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra if you can afford, helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, regardless of their circumstances.

To donate:

  •  bring cash or
  • donate online on  www.salisburycentre.org/donate  (Please use reference “EVENT NAME” when submitting).
  • Card payment option available at the entrance hall next to the notice board (Please enter the event’s name as reference).

If you cannot afford the event, please get in touch with the facilitator to request a free/discounted place.

This is an invitation to practice ‘Dana’ (generosity) – please pay only what you can afford to attend.
