Size Of Wales: Ten Trees For Christmas

For Christmas this year, give a loved-one a certificate showing that 10 (or 100!) trees have been planted as your gift to them. Our charity partner, Size of Wales, is running a much needed tree planting project in an area of Uganda which suffers devastating landslides due to mass deforestation. Let's help save the Planet for Christmas!!!

A message about recycling and litter at the festival:

A message about recycling and litter to all the gang who are coming to the festival… We will have bins for mixed recycling and bins for non-recyclable stuff. Please look out for the signs above/attached to each bin to know which is which. Please use the bins provided and under no circumstances drop litter anywhere on the site. Please respect Baskerville Hall and its grounds. We’re proud to have a good reputation for tidiness but we could be even better if we all muck in. Thanks! Freerotation Crew xxx

Aboutface visits Peru ahead of Freerotation 2018 collaboration:

We are excited to announce that Freerotation Artist, Aboutface, has embarked on an ambitious and profound inter-cultural collaboration with the indigenous Wampis community in Peru. This is in direct co-operation with our partner charity, Size of Wales which supports the Wampis as part of their ongoing work to protect an area of rainforest twice the size of Wales. The project will explore the evocative aural terrain of the rainforest and the sacred female songs of the Wampis. It will also raise awareness of the urgent threats to the Wampis’ forest home and raise money through the donation of his artist fee and sales of the vinyl release which will follow, among other things.
We encourage you to read more about the project HERE. You can also find out more about the Size of Wales charity on our website HERE and on their website HERE.
