Greenbelt festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend 25-28 August 2017 at Boughton Park near Kettering.
Our exhibition stand is always been well supported by volunteers, and helps us to reach a receptive audience. If you are planning to be at Greenbelt this year, and would like to give few hours alongside another GC volunteer, please email WebEditor As our regulars will no doubt agree, it’s fun talking to people who care about the same things as us, but might not have thought about them.
The stall is set up on Friday afternoon and taken down on Monday evening, and offers to help then would also be very much appreciated. Please get in touch if you can help.
Last year members of GC met up at the Christian Aid Stall for lunch each day- and I hope we will do the same again this year. Again a good chance to meet other people.
There is a great variety of talks and activities on Social and Justice and Eco and Religious themes.
If you are a previous helper who has bright ideas to share, or a previous attendee of Greenbelt with useful comments to make about the Green Christian Stall, please do get in touch. We value your suggestions
I went last year, and you can see an article and more pictures here –
If you have any concerns about camping by yourself , or would like to share a tent with other members from Green Christian do get in touch. I camped for the first time last year -by myself – and learned a lot. It is also possible to hire a ready set up tent, as one of our volunteer helpers did last year.
If you have never been to Greenbelt, it is worth trying it once.
And once you have been, I’m sure you’ll be back!
