Information for Youth Leaders
Coming along to Greenbelt with a gang of friends is a brilliant experience. That’s why we love welcoming youth groups through the festival gates…
We want to encourage all youth group leaders to bring young people along to Greenbelt, to challenge them to experience bold and refreshing art, thought-provoking talks and brilliant comedy, as well as all of the great sessions designed specifically for their age group. Encourage your group to make decisions for themselves, to have open minds to question, disagree or discover!
In the dedicated Youth venue, there will be Youth Volunteers available who can help young people make the most of their festival. This venue will feature a varied selection of workshops, performances, debates and exclusives.
2013 will also see the introduction of a new chill out cafe for young people (up to student age). This will be a space for them to chat, recharge their batteries, reflect, play games and plan the rest of their festival.
There is also a ‘detached’ team of youth workers onsite all weekend, roaming the site and offering support to young festivalgoers between 22.00 and 02.00.
Be sure to point your young people towards the Youth Festival Guides, available from the Youth venue and elsewhere around the site.

Do you have a Youth Group with opinions?
Greenbelt wants to hear your voice and the voices of your young people throughout the year. This will help us to improve the festival and support our strategic direction. We don’t want to make lots of extra work for you – it will just involve you signposting your group to opportunities, or asking them a few questions on our behalf.
Help us to put youth groups and young people at the centre of the festival.
