SANDERSON JONES FROM THE SUNDAY ASSEMBLY!

A stand-up comedian (he sold out The Sydney Opera House, by hand...), former World Record holder of the world's longest hug (an impressive 24 hours, 33 minutes) and co-founder of The Sunday Assemblya godless congregation that celebrates life.

Sanderson blew us away with his talk at our recent meetup, so we had to have him back to make Summercamp a whole lotta fun. We're lucky to have him and so are you.

 

LIVE MUSIC

“One of the UK’s brightest music hopes for 2014″ BBC

In the barn on Saturday evening, singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh will be taking to the stage playing an acoustic set of his heartwarming songs. He’s been highlighted as one to watch in BBC’s Sound of 2014, and 6Music’s Lauren Laverne calls Luke’s songs “unbelievably good”. She’s right too. Have a listen to his cover of Happy, you’ll get chills. To say we’re excited is an understatement. You’re going to love him.
