The new Green Gathering will be on from 28-31 July 2011 at Piercefield Park of Chepstow, Monmouthshire.
The team behind The Green Gathering are really delighted with the new event site; it has different levels and natural amphitheatres which will help re-create the magic and ‘zoning’ of different areas that has worked so well for the green gatherings of the past.
Piercefield Park is also a beautiful place to visit with lots of interesting features nearby including ruins, standing stones, exotic trees and local legends – all situated along the Wye river and valley; acclaimed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
This exciting new festival for 2011 continues the tradition of entertaining, environmentally and ethically conscious events. The 4 day camping is powered by renewable solar and wind energy and showcases innovative green technology, ethical markets, organic catering, speakers and films, music and cabaret stages, healing and holistic therapies and a variety of esoteric alternatives.
There will be a huge traditional British Crafts area and visitors will be able to learn a new "old skill" in one of the many workshops that will be running daily throughout the event.
There will be some fantastic entertainment too; 80's Eltctro-funk legend Thomas Dolby is headlining. The Gathering will also have an energetic and creative children s area.
