Thank you Buffy!

Thank you Tony

The Green Gathering youtube channel

There’s loads of new videos from 2023 on the Green Gathering Youtube channel – featured presentations from many of the contributors at the Speakers Forum. Our thanks to Shane Collins, Zoe Broughton, Jamie Lowe, Joe Hulbert, Oil Mukhophadhyay, John Moore, Rebecca Gibbs for the filming and post-production work, all funded by the Green Gathering Charity.

Wow – we won!

We won the International Greener Festival Award – that’s the top accolade in the world for sustainable events!

We also won the International Greener Power Award for demonstrating that it’s possible to run a whole festival – not only the stages but the backstage production, traders and all – using off-grid renewable sources.

We were shocked and soooooo pleased, truly honoured, to be up on stage with A Greener Festival at the Green Events and Innovations conference to receive these awards.

We live and breathe sustainable practices and to be recognised at such a level as successful grassroots pioneers is hugely, hugely heart warming; it will help energise us to keep innovating, improving and inspiring other events to ‘green up’.

Thanks to A Greener Festival for all your encouragement, and to everyone who contributes to The Green Gathering – this award is yours too.

Our pic shows Jak, Shane and Steve from OTP accepting the award and looking rightly chuffed with themselves! Huge thanks from the charity trustees to OTP and all of our crew, volunteers and festival goers x

Keeping going through the pandemic – latest update

It’s been a great start to the new year for us with thanks going to charity trustee and OTP director Steve Muggeridge for landing an Arts Council England grant to ensure advance planning for the Green Gathering 2021 steams ahead – even if we don’t we know for sure as we write this in January if the national vaccination programme will see us back to normal in time. All of us are working as normal on the assumption that all will be well and we are working on a range of ideas and initiatives designed to keep the optimism flowing and expectation rising so if you have any smart ideas, nows the time to get in touch.
