The 2013 Keep the Coal in the Hole Summer Festival (Summerfest) is taking place from 18-21 January at Dolamore Park near Gore - and registrations are due to close on Thursday 10 January. So if you want to be involved in this important - and fun - event, it's time to get your registration in.

Please register in advance - don't just turn up on the day. You will still be welcome but we need to plan food and space and you can help us by letting us know you are coming.

Why Summerfest matters

The 2012 Summer Festival was an important milestone for our campaign against new and expanded coal mining. It brought activists and concerned citizens together from all over the country for four days of planning, strategising, and training.

Find out what we did at the last festival – and the tremendous progress that’s resulted from decisions made and steps taken at the Festival – in this summary of Summerfest 2012 and its aftermath. And you can check out our 2012 Summerfest group photo

For more about Summerfest 2013 and our main guest speaker Rob McCreath from Friends of Felton in Australia, see this article from the Otago Daily Times - and this inspirational story of Friends of Felton's successful campaign against the mining companies.

I'm looking forward to Summerfest, and I hope to see you there.
