6th – 9th August 2015
We are a family friendly gathering devoted to ecological themes and sustainable living. There will be music over 3 Solar and Bike powered stages, a large program of workshops, speakers, Kid’s stuff, healing, good food, ale and hope.
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, not a passive spectator who comes along to consume what is on offer. We will be structuring all kinds of workshops and activities so that 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.
