News 08/05 —- The lucky winner of our competition was Douglas from New Mills! He has already bought a ticket and is donating his 2 tickets to a couple with children who are short of money and living a green or “downshifted” lifestyle. If this is you then please email email@example.com with details. NGG exists to promote sustainable, acheivable ways of green living. Over 250 people took part and the winner was drawn randomly. Thanks to all those that shared and thanks Doug!
New for this year *this is not pantomime* Comedy, Poetry, Drama—-Main Stage Bands announced—First lot of confirmed craft and healing workshops!—-
Northern Green Gathering will be held on the same beautiful organic farm as last year, near Ashbourne in the Derbyshire Dales. Early Bird Tickets available now! A huge amount of work has gone into building good relations with the local area and local green organisations, farms and traders. The site has all the facilities that we need and has very helpful and friendly hosts. We are building on the foundations that we made in 2014!
We keep our events small enough to keep a friendly atmosphere and to allow organisers and helpers to cope as unpaid volunteers. We started in 1997 with a small green gathering. At the time there were very few festivals in the North, everyone went South. Since our first gathering 17 years ago, the festival scene in the North of England has grown enormously and Northern Green Gathering has played an important role in stimulating this development.
Northern Green Gathering has a unique appeal and character and is very different from the average festival. We involve everyone in being an active participant. People of all ages and interests have the chance to enjoy, learn and contribute. Northern Green believes in working together to make a positive change in our own lives and those of future generations.
