A four day festival full of music, workshops, performances, debates, talks, activism, faith and worship, time to chill out and more!
Greenbelt is great, whether you’re with a gang of friends or on your own.
Have a look at our Greenbelt Wordle (above) which shows some of the feedback from young people at Greenbelt 2013.
Greenbelt 2013 was an absolutely fabulous celebration of 40 years of Greenbelt! We brought together a mass of people to get you singing, dancing, thinking, debating, worshipping and applauding.
Check back later to find out what to expect at Greenbelt 2014.
You are a massive part of Greenbelt and we want you to get stuck in, at the festival and year round.
We’ve been chatting to lots of young people and youth groups. Their ideas will shape some of what you see at the festival. We hope you’ll like it.
