On the 22nd of August, Sash and I will be traveling to Cheltenham for Greenbelt 2008! The festival lasts until the 25th and has a wide range of talks, performances, activities and stalls, with something there for all the family.
I have been once before to this faith/justice/music/arts festival and really enjoyed it. While initially a Christian festival, Greenbelt welcomes any visitor and doesn't force the religious side into your stay. I am not religious and found plenty to do! Sash and I won't actually be camping but we'll be meeting up with my family for the first time in a year. I'm looking forward to seeing them again!
I'm looking forward to checking out the music acts, sitting in the "Under and Over the Sea" Podules and the comedy acts in the evening. The Sigur Ros tour film will be an interesting watch and, if I can drag Sash away from the art events, I can't wait to see what cool things there will be on the stalls. There is a huge lineup of things to do, so check out the website for full details. If you can even go for a day it will be worth it.
I'll post photos and stories after the event. If anyone happens to be going this year be sure to let me know in the comments! You can see this trip on my Dopplr and Upcoming accounts and, as usual, I'll be updating on Twitter.
