We would like to extend our thanks to the local organisations which have kindly sponsored last year’s event.

This project was part funded by Stories in Stone, a scheme of conservation and community projects concentrated on the Ingleborough area. The scheme was developed by the Ingleborough Dales Landscape Partnership, led by Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

We would also like to thank the local businesses and individuals who generously donated raffle prizes which greatly assisted with our fund raising.

They are:

Lay of the Land, Garden Shed, Car and Kitchen, Co-op, Naked Man, The Italian Restaurant, The Talbot, The Corner, Rachel and Mike Benson, Wholesome Bee, Claire and Graham Douglas, Castleberg Sports, Lamberts, Field to Home, Settle Coal, Settle Swimming Pool, Dales Angels, 3 Peaks Cycles, Forage and Feast, Diane Allen and Settle Music.

As the Gathering is a FREE event we always welcome donations to help us bring the best of the folk world to Settle. If you would like to donate please click the button below.
