Hi I'm Simone Kay (Twigs). Founder of a new Social Enterprise called FRE3DOME. A festival Chill out Zone. FRE3DOME gives unemployed 18 - 30 year olds from Angus, Scotland access to experience, skills and opportunities within the festival industry.
We take our Chill Out Zone to Festivals, Gatherings throughout the UK and provide events with a relaxing space, as a festival retreat.
The Chill Out Zone comprises of 3 geodesic Domes
- Dome 1: A Vegan Cafe & Bar
- Dome 2: A Healing and Chill Out Space
- Dome 3: An Acoustic Stage
The project is an exciting one and we already have 2 events booked this summer with an additional 3 prospective bookings for 2020.
FRE3DOME are also hosting a small 2 day fundraising event in March 2020.
Our truck transports the festival Equipment
Local Angus based Coffee Cart, Bean Pedaling is traveling with us, providing Teas Coffees & Gourmet Hot chocolates in the chill out zone. He will also be supporting 18 - 30 year old crew members who wish to develop their skills in festival catering.
Fre3dome like to support local business too and we have had our Geodesic Dome covers created by Montrose Rope and Sail.
Our Festival in March will also be host to local Angus based artists, caterers, crafts people musicians and performers.

Fre3dome has strong environmental & social aims.
We use reusable plates, cups & bowls which will allow us to be zero waste at any event we attend. The cafe is cooking with gas.
Social Aims - to give 18 -30 year olds from Scotland an opportunity to travel with us as Fre3dome festival crew, gaining enjoyable and creative experiences in Festival life and work.
Our Crowd-funder is all or nothing; meaning we will only receive the pledge monies if we reach our total target of £3000.
Being able to start this Social Enterprise debt free will allow us to reinvest its profits directly back into the lives and future of young unemployed adults from Angus Scotland. It will allow more young people access to more skills, increased confidence and a network of possibilities for young folk to work either with FRE3DOME Collective or to go it alone and create their own festival business direction whether that be festival catering, rigging events, stage & audio technicians, event decoration, performing and much much more.
I hope you can support us and if you cant make a pledge then we would love for you to share this project with others. Here are our Social Media links.
