For kids at shabliss

From recycled materials to interesting random things to use, the SHABLISS kids will be busy and intrigued while they are set up with everything they need to create from their imagination and be free to explore the world of outdoor arts and crafts with our talented facilitators including from the fabulous PJ Library.

To be confirmed

Spontaneous Choir has been part of the past 15 ConFests.


Over 4000 people have been involved over the years

Often choirs grow to more than 200.

There is something wonderful, ancient and tribal about the choir sounds, particularly at twilight in a place of nature.

Each performance lasts for about an hour and a half and is directed spontaneously by Peter Gleeson and his 110 decibel baritone voice.
