Would you like to come to the Greenbelt Festival?

GreenbeltIt’s best described as a place where the arts, faith and justice collide… a bewildering range of music, drama, talks, food, campaigns, worship… and much more, all set within the beautiful grounds of Broughton House, near Kettering.

We’ll be travelling down by minibus first thing on Friday August 26th, returning to Wrexham during the afternoon of Tuesday 30th. I’ll be driving the minibus and acting as group leader, with my 18 year old daughter Annie acting as co-leader. We’ve both got current DBS certificates. We’ll be camping with other young people and their families; the festival is a very safe environment.

As long as you purchase them before the end of June, tickets for 15-17 year olds are £50, those for 18-25’s are £80 and standard tickets are £145. This price covers admission and camping for the whole bank holiday weekend. The Wales Synod of the Methodist Church will subsidize any young people who come by £25, and this will cover your contribution to travel and food costs, so the ticket price will be all you pay.

You can purchase your tickets and find out more, including the latest line-up, by going to http://www.greenbelt.org.uk

Please get in touch if a conversation would help.
