Over the August Bank Holiday weekend the Ellams family were lucky enough to join Rev'd. Denise at Greenbelt. A festival where faith, arts and justice meet which is held at Cheltenham Racecourse. Most of us hadn't been to Greenbelt before and wondered what it was going to be like.
All of us enjoyed the weekend. There was so much to do, see, hear and taste. From music, talks, poets, magicians, comedians, show, films, discussions authors, silent disco’s, food vans, services of all descriptions, and stalls.
This is what Georgina and Jonny had to say.
"I think Greenbelt was Amazing! It’s a brilliant place to take young children and older children as well. I was really impressed with the amount of different things to listen to and do. When my Mum said it was a Christian Festival I was a bit like everyone is, 'is it just going to be praying?' but it weren't I went to listen to a poet called Harry Baker and his poems were great and on all sorts of topic’s. I also enjoyed the comedians Adrian Plass and Milton Jones. There was a main stage where bands and singers preformed. I thought the best act was the London Gospel Choir because they were very lively and excitable. I loved Greenbelt and I really want to go again."
"Summary of Greenbelt
Great atmosphere, good acts- great for music and comedy, good friendly place, people, atmosphere, safe acts for children, good facilities. Good venue and clean.
Not much – in fact nothing this year.
Harry Baker, Milton Jones, Adrian Plass, London Gospel Choir and Lemor were amazing. I enjoyed the camping, although you don’t have to camp. Greenbelt is a great festival for members of any religion or none at all. Fantastic for all ages. Greenbelt is a must do festival."

Adult weekend ticket is £99. Under 18 weekend ticket is £54. Family weekend ticket. (2 adults and 2 children ) £254. Single parent weekend pass with 2 children £156.
