About

Greenbelt hosts its 46th festival of arts, faith and activism this year. No, we can’t quite believe it either. In a world on fire, we’re still somewhere to believe in. And we’re bringing our own brand of hopeful revolution to Boughton House across 24 stages, galleries, installations and outdoor performances for a festival that’s inclusive, open-minded, participatory and generous in spirit.

What is Greenbelt?

We’re somewhere artistry meets activism, the secular meets the spiritual, politics meets positivity. We’re somewhere to come together once a year, where we’re just as likely to dream up a better world as we are to dance and debate, to pray and to party (ideally all of those things at the same time).

Who we are

We’re somewhere lots of us have a stake in. We’re made up of a small band of people who spend all year dreaming up and delivering the best festival we can. Then there are our trustees, a family of hundreds of volunteers, a host of generous festival Angels, and a rolling sea of artists, activists, thinkers, dreamers and doers who make Greenbelt happen each year.

Our story

We were founded a long time ago by a bunch of misfits in a field. We’re still in a field. And we’re still somewhere that welcomes absolutely anyone and everyone. Particularly those of us who sometimes feel like we don’t belong anywhere else.
