We have some good news and some bad news.
The good news is that we have Robb Johnson and Tracey Curtis confirmed as performers at Peace News Summer Camp on Saturday 29 July! They are much-loved singer-songwriters who have both performed before at Camp.
The bad news is that Betsy Leondar-Wright is not coming to Peace News Summer Camp.
Betsy was due to have delivered a training of trainers called Exploring Class the weekend after Peace News Summer Camp, and this unfortunately has just been postponed due to a number of factors including Betsy having a family health emergency.
Once the August training of trainers was postponed to 2018, if Betsy had come to this year’s Camp, this would have not been in line with the Camp organisers’ policy of not flying in speakers just to speak at PNSC. (There was an exception to this in 2013, when there was a different group of organisers for that year.)
Two small consolation prizes are: there will be a workshop on class using techniques Betsy has helped to pioneer; and on Friday night Betsy will Skype in to do a talk to the whole camp.
ALSO: We will have a solar-powered six-seater cinema!
