Greenbelt news : Rob Bell : The Holy Shift Tour
Latest Festival Flyer update from Greenbelt
This July, Rob Bell returns for his first UK tour in eight years. Blending his usual mix of philosophy, comedy, theology and subversive insight, The Holy Shift Tour explores this ancient, complex, subtle, mysterious word HOLY and what it looks like for us to reclaim this word in all its hidden depth to help us make sense of the modern world. Doors open at 7.15 with the show starting at 8pm.

Joining Harry Baker tonight for his Woken Spurred showcase is Longfella: Poet Tony Walsh – an ordinary bloke with an extraordinary talent and a remarkable story.
Overcoming childhood poverty and illness, then working everyday jobs in the communities of his beloved home city of Manchester, he has risen in recent years to become one of the UK’s most widely recognised and most in-demand professional poets.
His work came to worldwide attention in May 2017 when broadcast globally from the vigil for victims of the arena bomb outrage in his beloved Manchester. His poem ‘This Is The Place’ entered the folklore and fabric of the city he’s still proud to call home – painted onto walls, recited in schools, re-mixed by DJs, even tattooed onto skin. www.longfella.co.uk
Join Tony and Harry tonight at 8pm on our YouTube Channel for what promises to be a very special 40 minutes of spoken word from two great poets: bit.ly/gblive-spurred-5

In 2017 a young girl took her life believing that God didn’t love lesbians. At the same time, the church continued to give the impression that the ‘gay’ debate is all about what clergy can and can’t do, rather than how we all deal with diversity.
Every year at Greenbelt, John Bell astounds us with his wisdom. Back in 2017, as well as his usual wisdom, he shared more than just his astonishing biblical interpretation with us as he ‘came out’ publicly at the festival. bit.ly/gbtalk-rampant
