Next Event TBA

Souk and Holistic Therapies

Workshop and Holistic Fair

The Holistic fair will take place inside the front moat area east of the castle. Dance demonstrations from 12 to 6pm will take place on a small platform in the forecourt of the castle. The stage will be a platform placed across from the castle facing the castle just north of the parking lot. At 6:30pm, evening performances begin in the Ballroom and most participants will move inside.

For all purposes, the castle area will provide room for dance workshops only. The white tent will be available for usage outside in the castle forecourt in case outside workshops are caught in rainy weather. In any case, the atmosphere of the dance workshop day is more about small gatherings around small but eclectic performance. This is a day for talented people who otherwise would not be showcased in this way.

Moroccan Tea Tent

At noon the stalls, healing and workshops kick in to full action.  Shakefest always has an eclectic mix of market stalls chosen from the most currently creative and innovative entrepreneurs while you while away the afternoon or during workshop breaks. Holistic Therapies such as massage and energy rejuvenation is available for those who have been working hard all afternoon in their workshops who want to avail of the relaxation and calm. The booking office will open an hour earlier. Come for the workshops but also come simply to soak up the village atmostphere at the Castle.
