About the Weekend
Starting on Friday September 8th, from midday, HangOut UK is a weekend event for people passionate about the HandPan from across the world to come and join together to learn new techniques and play Handpans and other similar sound sculptures. During the weekend various performances and workshops will be available in the Barn and Chicken Shed or down by the river, as well as a chance for people to jam or perform music of their own during the open mic sessions. On each night there will be some firepits where we’d like to encourage people to play music and enjoy the open space. (weather depending of course)
Finishing on Sunday 10th September people are welcome to camp over on the Sunday night as the weekend isn’t quite over yet; another night of music, open mics and musical fun is in order to end the weekend’s HangOut. We will also be running a raffle again this year with tickets being sold in the big Barn on Saturday evening. If anyone has anything else they would like to donate to the raffle then please see Rob and Kelly over the weekend and before Saturday night performance time in the Big Barn. The HangOut’s very own PA system was purchased out of the money taken from the 2014 raffle!
Mellow farm is an established family run farm dating back to 1566. Set in the beautiful Surrey countryside on the outskirts of the historic market town of Farnham, Mellow farm nestles in a river valley with woodlands and rural life all around.
HangOut UK will be centred in a big old barn on the farm as well as the old Chicken Shed, with a purpose built stage for open mic as well as plenty of space for a jamming circle and even a fully functional kitchen area.
Situated at the end of the camping field right next to the River Wey is a large fire pit for some after dark jamming sessions around the open fire.
Mellow farm is a functional campsite with camping field, toilet & shower facilities, BBQ area with picnic table & a fully working kitchen.
The Chicken Shed also boasts facilities for up to 25 people to sleep, so if you cannot bring a tent then do not despair as we can provide you with a mattress on a first come first served basis; just bring some bedding. Spaces are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment or you’ll end up on a hard floor!
In addition, tents are available to use for the weekend but are in a very limited supply and will be on a first come first served basis – All tents must be erected and dismantled by the person borrowing them for the weekend.
Also bear in mind that music in the barn can go on until quite late.
