The Green Gathering is renowned for being family friendly, winning The Spark Family Award in 2013 and a Festival Kidz Gold Award in 2014, and incorporating a huge adventurous Kids’ Zone with toddler area, teens tent, gardens, crafts, rides, acting & action. The Gathering aims to raise awareness about the importance of ecological sustainability, while believing that education should be hands-on and fun.
There’s a chance for all ages to learn traditional skills in the Craft Field and to explore pathways to green futures in our Creating Alternatives areas. The Green Gathering is entirely off-grid; all stages are 100% powered by wind, sun and people.Debates, campaign stalls, wholesome food, permaculture gardens and woodland faerie glades set this festival apart from the mainstream. There’s an Assisted Camping area, solar and wood-fired showers, communal campfires and a healing area. The Green Gathering’s own West Country ciderand ale bar provides tipples to whet the whistle at very reasonable prices.
Music-wise, this is a festival for discovering up and coming bands as well as old festival favourites. With swing, funk, folk, punk, dance, disco, ska, reggae, acid-rock and northern soul on offer, there’ll be opportunities to dance like a wild thing every night. At the same time, this is a peaceful festival, surrounded by nature, where it is possible to go to bed early and enjoy the mornings!
The Green Gathering is the latest incarnation in a long line of Green festivals. It is a place to relax, make friends and listen to music – but it’s also so much more than that. It’s a community and an education. It’s about providing food, energy, health and shelter without degrading the planet. It’s about future families.
It’s a festival that’s fun, but it goes far beyond hedonism.
