Latest Festival Flyer update from Greenbelt



Greenbelter Leena has made this quite wonderful, funny, (dorky? 😊) film about Greenbelt. We love it, and knew nothing about it until today. It made our day in the office and we think you might like it too.
Thanks Leena 💚

I made a video about Greenbelt Festival.

Thank you Greenbelt and In Place of War for this introduction to Emel. Astonishingly beautiful voice, beautiful music, powerful words. Blown away and tearful at that melody. ❤️

Kind of speechless, that voice is going to haunt me in the very best way!

Thank you Greenbelt and In Place of War!

Shivers and goosebumps, melody that transcends language barriers ❤️

That was just astonishing Emel, thank you, goosebumps all over!

thank you Emel, in place of war, and GB

Wasn’t expecting any Black Sabbath when I tuned in. Fantastic 🤘

This is utterly astonishing, realised what it was and grinned so wide!

Sound’s wonderful!

Steve, thanks for the nudge to make sure I watched tonight!

Very enjoyable set Emel.

Join us at 8pm tonight as In Place of War takeover our channel for a very special livestream, including a performance from Emel Mathlouthi.

Emel Mathlouthi intertwines twin commitments to nature and music, having first overcome an oppressive upbringing by turning to music as a teenager. Her song Kelmti Horra (My Word is Free) generated millions of views during the 2011 Tunisian Revolution. The song went on to become the anthem for the Arab Spring and she performed it at the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.

Pitchfork declared: “The world needs Emel Mathlouthi’s anthems against the dictatorship machine,” and NPR christened her, “The 21st century’s catalyst for change,” including her in their '200 Best Songs By 21st Century Women' feature.

Greenbelt Festival

Garry Rutter is a member of St Luke’s Church, Holloway and a long-term Greenbelter. In fact, he was a co-host on the festival’s first ever podcast series, way back in 2009. He’s a modest and unassuming contributor to The Book of Queer Prophets and we love this little short he’s filmed to share his pride at being involved and seeing his work published. Go Garry.

Greenbelt Festival

When Ruth Hunt spoke at #gb15 she was the CEO of Stonewall. Her talk was forthright and fascinating in equal measure. She was described back then (by the Independent) as ‘the eighth most influential LGBT person in Britain’. Frankly those other seven must have been pretty hot stuff.

Today we’re sharing her brilliant talk from that year about the church and its relationships with the LGBT community - the link is below.

A practising Catholic, Ruth has also now curated a wonderful new project, ‘The Book of Queer Prophets’. It’s a series of chapters from contributors who’ve wrestled with reconciling their sexuality and identities with the religious traditions they grew up in.

It contains chapters from much-loved Greenbelt speakers like Pádraig Ó Tuama, Winnie Varghese, John Bell, Tamsin Omond, Rachel Mann and Mpho Tutu van Furth – plus an array of amazing writers, including Jeanette Winterson, writing openly and honestly about their experiences of sexuality and religion. There’s also an afterword from Kate Bottley.

It’s edited for Harper Collins by Greenbelter Grace Pengelly and one of the chapters is written by Greenbelter Garry Rutter. This is an important book. It also feels like a very Greenbelt book, through and through. We’d urge you to read it.

May Jennifer this May be useful to you after our recent conversations.

Thanks for this Esther. Since that convo perhaps you could shed a bit of light on the passage from 1 corinthians 6 :9-11. Have to say it appears quite clear what it says. Confused. Com

Thank you very much 😊 💖 🏳️‍🌈 💖 😊

God made man for woman and woman for man, when you know him as creator it’s pretty obvious stuff.

  12. Clare Taylor says:

    Brilliant, Ray Taylor, we all need to go

  13. David Hutchinson says:

    I’ve been to GB three times at Boughton House. Much less of a Christian feel to it than I was expecting (more ‘spiritual’ perhaps ) but unique amongst festivals I’m sure.

  14. Deborah Casper says:

    Edward Casper give this a watch. Chloë Casper hang in there. She’s an agnostic and gets the Greenbelt vibe. Great video.

  15. Jo Ind says:

    That is one beautiful film.

  16. Julian Weyer Brown says:

    That’s just how I feel too, thank you. Been going since the early 80s and that feeling has always been there, but you put it so much better than I could.

  17. Peter Dockree says:

    I can’t find words for this so I will stick to thankyou for making this “dorky” 40 something, doubt filled priest remember a place I too call home on a dull November day.
