Event description

Description

On 17 July 2009, Paul Kingsnorth and Dougald Hine launched Uncivilisation: The Dark Mountain Manifesto in a barn at the back of a pub on the edge of Oxford.

This July, the Dark Mountain team invites friends, readers and supporters to join us for a party to celebrate the journey we've been on over the past ten years – and to say farewell to Dougald, who is stepping down after a decade at the heart of this project.

This is a free event and all are welcome. There will be a bar, a firepit and an informal programme of talks, readings, stories and music from some of our friends and collaborators.

Doors open at 6pm – we do recommend that you get something to eat before you come, though, as the pub has changed hands since the launch ten years ago and is no longer serving food on week nights. (Of course, you could always bring sandwiches and find a picnic spot along the nearby riverbank.)

Dougald and his family are also inviting anyone who wants to join them for part (or all) of the walk from Hampton Court to Oxford over the ten days before the party. (More details soon.)

If you are planning on coming to the party, please book a free ticket here so we have an idea of how many of us there will be.
