Stop press: the first Small is Beautiful acts are announced

From the 4th-6th September CAT will be hosting the Small Is beautiful festival that explores positive responses to our future through low carbon technology, social justice and the arts. We bring together experts, enthusiasts, creators and the curious from around the world. Join us in making a magical place full of possibilities, and find out how we can collectively shape the future of our world.

It’s been a busy old month here at Small is Beautiful HQ. Early bird tickets have sold out in no time at all – and you’ll see why when you discover the programme! General tickets are on sale via the website, and they too are selling like hot (Welsh) cakes – to avoid disappointment, get yours here sharpish. If you come with a team, you can take advantage of our 6 for the price of 5 offer too.Campfire

So what’s in store? We’re absolutely thrilled to announce our collaboration with the Machynlleth Comedy Festival. The incredible Rob Newman is the first of two comedians coming along to perform. He will bring The Brain Show to the Saturday of the festival.

Our lecture series is really taking shape, and will include the inspirational Dr Jane Davidson, former Welsh minister for Environment and Sustainability, and Aubrey Meyer, a trained violinist who co-founded the Global Commons Institute to counter the threat of climate change.

There are a number of fun, hands-on workshops planned, including from The Soil Association and Strawbuild.

We will have loads of acoustic musicians, many locally sourced, to relax to during the day and expect some foot stomping ceilidhing long into the night to complete the soundtrack to your Small is Beautiful experience.

Don’t forget that if camping isn’t for you, you can stay over at CAT from as little as £20 per night!

Of course, none of this would be possible without our team of volunteers. If you want to be one of them, we’d love to have you on board – please email Equally, if you want to come and share some thoughts or some art, there’s still time – drop us a line and let us know about your work – contact

Stay in touch – believe it or not, there’s more to come! Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter @smallisfestival, sign up to newsletters on our new website:

See you in September!

Katie, George and the Small is Beautiful festival team
