Welcome to Pete Lawrence's website. Find news about the recent launch of Campfire Convention - a brand new social network which also hosts a variety of events and meetings.

Campfire Convention

The web community launched in late summer 2017 with our first weekend event Campfire Convention 001.UK which took place in August. The second event Campfire Convention 002.UK is happening in London, November 4th 2017.

Please come and join the Campfire Community

Since leaving The Big Chill in early 2008, Pete moved to the village of Braunston in Northamptonshire to renovate a house and write a book, soon to be published. He has principally spent his time developing a blueprint for a social network, Campfire Convention, an evolutionary platform for creative thinkers, funded and shaped by its own members, which also plans to stage a variety of Campfire gatherings.
