All about Greenbelt – who we are and what we do.

What is Greenbelt

Greenbelt is an arts, faith and justice festival with a long and rich history. We’ve been going since 1974. That’s over 40 consecutive festivals. Without a break. 

Trust Greenbelt

Trust Greenbelt is our way of giving something back – taking the generous contributions of our festivalgoers, and turning them into a resource to enable artistry, activism and spirituality way beyond the festival.

Partners & Associates

Our Partners and Associates are integral to the richness and diversity of what we do.  You can find out more about who our Partners and Associates are here.

Who we are

Greenbelt is governed by a Board of Trustees. It has a small core staff team who, in turn, work with hundreds of volunteer teams year-round and at the festival itself to make Greenbelt work.


Among farmers, actors, musicians, theologians and used car dealers, Greenbelt was a dream born on the unsettled non-conformist edges of the church during the early 1970s. And a few brave and creative people soon found themselves at the first ever Greenbelt festival in 1974 on Prospect Farm in Suffolk.
