Thanks xx I have not bought Tony ticket as waiting to see what is going to happen

Well done Greenbelt xx

I’m holding my breath!

Thank you Greenbelt. And if we have to roll it over keep the money. We want you to survive. Hoping still. But if not let's get the artists doing some things on line. In the big scheme of things it's about learning to love our neighbours and looking out for one another. Hugs to all the team still trying to make it happen.

Thanks Greenbelt! Beacons of hope like you make the world a better place! Keep my money and keep bringing more joy! ❤️

Thank you Greenbelt.

Helen Blake

We're announcing our first lineup wave for Greenbelt Festival 2020 Wild At Heart very soon. In these unprecedented times we hope it provides something to get excited about. We hope it's something to believe in........*

*‪This post was scheduled a week or so ago. Things are changing fast. We still live in hope. The festival is 5 months away. But we need to keep in step with Govt guidelines & do the right thing. Especially for the sake of the vulnerable in our community.

We’ll post updates in the coming week.‬

We know some are wondering how they can continue to be church in a time of #coronavirus. Here’s one thing: our friends The Trussell Trust would love you to keep your buildings open for foodbank use even though you’re not gathering for services. (More here: trusselltrust.org/church-support/) ...

Still got it! My first GB I think.

Yep, still got that one as well!

Yup, still got that one 🙂

My first one too, still traumatised by the toilets, I was cleaning my teeth in that gutter contraption when the guys came in to empty them 😨

My 2nd Greenbelt.

Number 3 for me. 1980, 1983, 1984...Still got the programme and bonus copy of Strait!

I was there and still have the programme too!

I think this might have been my first Greenbelt too! 😍

This was also my first one

My first year...still have the t-shirt too somewhere....😀

My first year!

Bruce Cockburn's first appearance at GB! An amazing late night solo show in the Big Top. I think the entire audience knew we were experiencing something very special.

My first Greenbelt! Those were the days. Don't miss those long drops 💩💩💩

I think U2 went to one at Bedford? Bev Sage and the late Steve Farnie as Casual Tease. He dressed as Charlie Chaplin. Remember 100% Proof, LCGC, Garth Hewitt, Steve Chalke, David Pawson, Cliff Richard and many more over the years. Made friends with folk from Reading but I’m from Scotland...

It was one of the best gigs I have ever attended. It took a long time to get him to come but so worth the wait.

Bev J Sage have you seen this 🙂 xx

I was there!

I was there!
