It's a bit early really, but we've just started selling tickets to this years show (22/23rd June 2022). Every year I tell everyone that they shouldn't hang about too long as we're going to sell out and this years no different. We've got room this year for a few more (post covid), but there's a lot more interest from farmers.

We've got over a hundred speakers lined up, including Jill Clapperton and Greg Judy back for old times sake and Dwayne Beck is finally coming...I've been badgering him every year since we started, but this always clashes with the Dakota Lakes open day. There'll be Government ministers and anarchists, foodies and food and most of the fun of the fair. There's a biostimulant trial plot, a compost zone and of course, the direct drill demo area...this year including an inter-row hoe demo. It is going to be the best Groundswell yet. Don't miss out. https://groundswell.yourticketpurchase.com/events/groundswell

when is the timetable out ?
Good question. Final timetable won't be fixed till the week before, if the last few years are anything to go by. But we should know the big picture by the end of March, for those who can only come one day and want to know which day to make it. Those that applied for a speaking slot will be informed in the next week or two, I'm sorry that it's all a bit back to front...the date for tickets going on sale was published before we were really ready.

I've never met anyone who has been who hasn't felt like they have learnt the value of their ticket. You normally pay to learn, but get tickets for free if you are the product and are going to be sold too.
No doubt. A typical 12 basis point meeting will cost £80 (inc vat) for the day. But; it’s structured, small groups to encourage dialogue, includes lunch and hasn’t got the distraction of shiny kit! Therefore you learn. Don’t get me wrong; I’d love to come but unless someone can say it genuinely costs that much to put it on; the price is rather greedy in my opinion. What is the basis points allocation by the way?

There's a lot of costs, just the toilet and shower hire must be eye watering.
