Greenbelt Festival 2017

Greenbelt Festival 2017

When: Friday, 25 Aug 2017 9:00AM  |  Where: Boughton House, Kettering. Northamptonshire

Greenbelt is one of out faviouriate things - a festival space where faith, jusice and the arts come together and where good things happen.  As place where LGBTQ people don't need to hide who they are, from one another, or from God.  A litttle glimpse of how faith might be, and a great place for LGBTQ people - indeed, for enayone - to explore how fiaht and human experience can illuminate and inspire one another.

This year's festival takes place from Friday 25 - Monday 28 August at Boughton House, near Kettering.  The theme is The Common Good - how do we live our lives not for ourselves but for the flourishing of every part of our community, our society, our planet?  There will be ideas, music, workshops and most of all, time and space togethert to reflect, inspire and challenge.  You can see the full line up and find out more aout Greenbelt on their lovely website - ad this year you can also see the full timings for the weekend so if you don't fancy camping but would rather just visit for the day, you can do that.  You can download a flyer to share with friends here, or by contacting the office and we'll happily pop a handful in the post for you.  

For many, many years Greenbelt has been a space where LGBT people could come together, meet and make friends, and where we'e been ale to be really visible and vocal - as festivalgoers, on the programme and offering our gifts and skills as colunteers who make the festival happen.  Puterspace is a group of LGBTQ Greenbeltersand their friends and supporters;  we're contributed to the programme in a range of different ways over the years but we not focus on the things we do best as the festival eveloves and changes - a social event in the Jesus Arms in partnership with Christian Connection, a presence in the Takeaway, Greenbelt's resource and display space, and a very special eucharist where LGBT people aren't just tolerated but where the table is ours, and is extended wide enough for anyone who wants to join us.  You can find out more about Outerspace on their website here, and on Facebook.

Greenbelt really is very special;  it would be great to see you there.
