The Green Gathering 2019

A four day festival beyond hedonism powered by wind, sun and people… just the best!

Educate for sustainability, create alternatives, frolic in fields. Powered by wind, sun & people, and Food by Veggies. Veggies hope again to be supporting a Co-operators Camp together with Radical Routes & others, in the Campaigns Zone.

This year Veggies will be eligible again for the Ethical Caterer Award, having won it in 2015! We are continuing to push forward our minimal packaging  policies – extending the use of proper mugs to serving soft drinks in returnable beakers, to reduce use of single use plastics & straws.  We have now established distribution of our Ethical Consumer Best Buy Burger/Sosage Mixes to many other caterers to help raise their ethical sourcing. We have increased the hemp in the mix and aim soon to sourced our herbs, and possibly our hemp, from Bradley Nook Farm who, in 2017, donated it’s beef herd to all-life rescue and is transitioning, with our support, to vegan organic growing.

Shambala Festival – Rebel Soul

Shambala is a creative, non-commercial, ethical and family-friendly festival with a wild side and completely independent from advertising and sponsorship!

In 2016 Shambala went Meat and fish free, to continue their mission to keep Shambala at the cutting edge of sustainable event organising.

“… we’re setting ourselves a challenge: to provide the most eye-popping, mouthwatering, colourful, hearty array of cuisine at Shambala 2016 without a single bit of meat or fish on sale. Not a sausage. Instead, keep your eyes peeled for … a range of delicious food from around the world, debates, talks and creative exploration of the wonderful world of food.

Shambala HQ is a mixed bag, with vegans, veggies and meat eaters co-existing harmoniously together, but the whole team agrees that it is important to be bold with our environmental stance, and encourage this debate.”

Rebel Soul

Veggies hope to assist again with facilities for the Rebel Soul space, with a programme of intellectual stimulation, music and performance that will challenge, inspire and fire you up. Whet your appetite: fresh-baked cake, pasties & samosas, teas & coffees (for donation), and fairtrade tuck shop.

Rebel Soul will be a whole area combining beautiful tents and beautiful people within to celebrate rebellion, resistance and exploring positive futures. Stimulation for your mind with workshop, displays, info and bookstall and, for your aural delectation, a fine line-up of music and poetry.

“Rebel Soul is politics thinly veiled as entertainment. In the day we host workshops and debates on hot topics run by people who know their fields inside out. We host the country’s frontline campaigners – from the people who ran the No More Page 3 campaign to the people spearheading the anti-fracking movement. We bring you the people who will ask the big questions, and then help you answer them, like why is Shambala vegetarian? what is sex? and what is race?”

By night we celebrate with bangin’ bands and DJs from punk to soca to techno, and from all over the world. We have a store full of books and zines and a tuck shop with hot drinks and delicious cakes. All our proceeds go to support grassroots campaigns – last year we funded groups supporting asylum seekers.

The intention of the camps

To build understanding, experience and expression of paganism in the local community, for beginners as well as those more experienced.  We will honour, respect and celebrate the Earth, ourselves and the spirit of life which we call the Goddess. We will do this through healing, festivity, dancing, singing, creativity, craft working, path working, fun, learning and sharing.

We have the usual wonderful stand-alone spiritual workshops, crafts, fun and celebration for all. Extra night’s camping on Sunday 12th August available as an optional extra.

Spiritual development camp

The Spiritual Development Camp began at Goddess Camp 2011 and is open to anyone fourteen years old and upwards (under eighteens should be accompanied by an adult.)

This camp was created to provide adults and older teenagers with a space to develop their spiritual practices in a quiet, natural environment. There will be workshops to help you explore your beliefs and the opportunity to try new ways of working. Alternatively you can simply take advantage of the peaceful atmosphere to relax, explore the beautiful woodland in Bestwood Country Park and practise as you like.
