Where does the money go?

The Big Tent is organised by Centre for Stewardship. Any profits that are made at Big Tent go directly back in to the work of the charity - but Big Tent costs a lot of money to put on!! We look after the designed landscape of Falkland Estate and care for the A-listed House of Falkland with its arts and crafts interiors. Over 200,000 folk walk through Falkland Estate each year so we've lots of paths to look after! We run other activities during the year about food, wood and craft. If you are interested in any of the other work that we do, please get in touch with us on or email .
