THEATRE OF FOOD: GRUB CIRCUS PROGRAM

Free oat-based soft serve served at music festivals is a thing now. People visiting All Together Now who need a break from the hard choice of which artist to watch and who to miss can escape to the Oatly soft zone and unwind their minds with the help of the brain-freeze treatment given by the inventors of Oat drink. Because why not?
RISE Hot Tubs & Sauna:RISE Nordic Spa offers a breakaway from the bustling crowd, where you can relax, reset and rejuvenate yourself in our wood-fired hot tubs and saunas.

– Breathe: Our beautiful oasis of wellness is located on the Lawns overlooking the lake and carefully curated by Kundalini Yoga expert Kary Stewart.
Set beside the beautiful Curraghmore Lake, on the main lawns and partially into the woods, the area offers some privacy and quiet for those who wish to partake in the number of treatments we will have available.

Boutique camping is now available to book for All Together Now 2023 with Podpads Village, Yippee Tents and Silk Road offering a range of unique glamping experiences with various sizes of Yurts, Tipis, Bell Tents, and more.
The renowned Greencrafts Village makes a welcome return; located by the Bandstand, it’s an ATN “must-do” experience where you can take part in loads of gorgeous rural, sustainable, craft-making activities and make beautiful, ethical and practical items to take home and treasure. With close-up respect for our natural world, it’s the only off-grid area at the festival, and you’ll leave packed with loads of energy, having witnessed the profoundly positive effects and relaxing fun of hand-making with sustainably sourced and natural materials, in an eco-conscious way.
Every morning and afternoon some of Ireland’s best craft makers will lead small, friendly, drop-by classes, where you’ll be led through all the stages of how to make wonderful practical items to take home (some workshops are even 1:1). All activities are especially aimed at beginners (although more experienced hands are very welcome too) and everything you need is provided. You don’t need to book in advance, and although it’s an adult area, supervised children are welcome to join in. The focus is on natural, sustainable, holistic, craft traditions and you’ll get to learn new skills; exchange green mind, body and soul ideas, and benefit from great mindful energy.
There are several activities on offer including; woodworking, blacksmithing, thatching, jewellery making and fresh flower weaving and lots more. The area is open all Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 6pm. And activities range from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. There are also plenty of seats to chill and relax if you’d like to just watch the vibe.
A warm welcome awaits you to join this community of rural skill makers in creating stunning ethically practical keepsakes and pioneering new ways to live more at one within our natural world. We’re very much look forward to seeing you there; we’re tucked under the trees behind the bandstand.
