Heading to Knockengorroch World Ceilidh ?
Knockengorroch Festivals were born from a love of roots music, and created with the express aims of bringing great music to the hills of Galloway and supporting rural regeneration in the Uplands of Scotland.
Bringing first class World Music Acts to a beautiful and undiscovered upland corner of Scotland, seemed an excellent and relevant way to further this aim.
If lots of people were to have a great time in the process well so be it!
We began one mid-summer 1998, the year after an international ‘rainbow gathering’ took place on the land, and since then have moved from strength to strength without losing any of our original character. We now attract people from all over Scotland, the UK, and beyond, and have acted as an inspiration for several other festivals in Dumfries and Galloway, and further afield.
Originally held at Knockengorroch Farm in Galloway, we have also held festivals in the Forest of Ae near Dumfries, and Talnotry near Newton Stewart. All locations have a breath-taking beauty and ‘upland’ position in common, and it is this focus that Knockengorroch Festivals continue to promote.
GoCarShare Booking System
We’ve introduced a new booking system:
Passengers ‘book’ the journey. Once the driver has accepted, the passenger will be asked to prepay via PayPal.
A week after the journey has been completed we will transfer the money to the driver, minus our fee of 15%, which usually works out as just a couple of pounds. Drivers are welcome to factor this cost into the price they quote to take a passenger.
We don’t enforce the booking system, but it is important to use because:
1. It prevents people dropping out at the last minute so offers the drivers security.
2. It helps ensures the safety of the platform; everyone is trackable.
3. This is our way of funding the development of GoCarShare and ensuring that we are here next year too.
We hope you value GoCarShare and support us in using the booking system. Please shoot through any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
