Greenbelt Youth: Updates
There’s an extensive programme for young people at Greenbelt 2012 – Look first in The Shed (the Youth venue) which hosts artists from across the programme, giving young people exclusive access to interviews, performances, workshops and more.
If you’re a young person, come to the festival ready to get active, get creative, get involved with activism, get inspired, get challenged, get musical and get social.
Here are a few updates we want to flag up…
The Roots Stage
If you have always wanted to play at Greenbelt but you aren’t yet on the bill, then be sure to pop along to the Roots Stage. It’s our open-mic, sign-up-and-play venue and the content can be anything.
It’s a great place to hear new acts, or to be heard yourself. Roots survives and thrives by relying on you to provide the entertainment.
Bring your own instruments/props/visual aids/band members! Sign up opens on Friday, so don’t delay.
Sports with the Methodists
Inspired by the Olympics? Has Euro 2012 encouraged you to practice your skills? We’re working with the Methodist Church to make Greenbelt 2012 stronger for those who love sport.
A highlight of this will be the all-new Football cage so bring your trainers ready for two-on-two Panna KO.
In recent years, the Skate Park has been a great hangout for young people. We’re resting the skate park this year, and providing something truly spectacular in its place.
The Canopy is Greenbelt’s second music stage, emerging from Underground with a full programme of thrilling bands performing throughout the weekend.
Late Night Swishing in The Shed
Bored of your wardrobe? Can’t afford another shopping trip? Worried about the amount of clothes we throw away?
Join us again for another Christian Aid Collective clothes swap, late on Saturday night. All you need to do is bring along an item of clothing that you’d like to swap with someone else and learn about how our fast fashion clothes industry is affecting climate change. Come along and enjoy a bit of retail therapy without the guilt of damaging your bank balance and the environment.
Volunteering for 16 and 17 year olds
If you’re 16 or 17 and still looking for ways to get involved in the festival then there are still a few places left if you want to volunteer… Read more here »
This year we also have a recognition scheme for volunteers at Greenbelt in 2012.
