Join SAS @ The Somersault Festival

Surfers Against Sewage is delighted to have been nominated as the official charity partner of the Somersault Festival. Taking place within the stunning Castle Hill estate in North Devon from the 17th – 21st July, the Somersault Festival is a brand-new, five-day summer camp of music and adventure in the heart of the South West.

With surfers & environmentalists Jack Johnson and Ben Howard headlining, and the wave-soaked North Devon coast just a stone’s throw away, we are stoked to be taking our campaigns to what is set to be an amazing weekend.

The beautiful, big, blue SAS tents will be overflowing with big wave surfers, giant marine litter whales, tall tales of surf exploration, free art workshops, secret gigs from amazing musicians, the launch of the SAS Raffle and of course our 20 strong team of amazing SAS Regional Reps over the course of the festival. All we need is for as many ‘Somersaulters’ to come and join us for what’s set to be our most exciting and inspirational festival yet!
