Folk & world music, workshops, films, and food & craft stalls for all the family.

100% Mud Free!
HOME takes place indoor and out. We have fantastic wet weather facilities and with heaps to hear, see and do, come rain or shine, we’ll go ahead whatever the weather. (Note to campers: fear Glastonbury-style mud rivers through your tent? Worry not - we even have a wet weather option for you!)

HOME is a two-day festival focussing on acoustic music, voices and song from around the world. A celebration and exploration of different cultures and languages, HOME features unplugged sets from a wide range of outstanding UK and international artists, as well as some of the best talent from right here on our own doorstep. Join us as the festival enters its third year in the magnificent setting of Dartington Hall’s 14th century courtyard. Join the conversation on twitter using hashtag #HOMEFest12
