for Northern Green Gathering as your favourite British event.

Held over 4 days in summer, on a beautiful organic farm in the Derbyshire Dales. NGG is very different from the average festival. It is about hope and belief in working together to make a positive change in our own lives and the lives of future generations.

We held our first green event in 1997. Our festival is always run on greenfield sites and powered only by renewable energy. There is a policy of only organic food from our cafes. We always have lots of artwork around the site and gardens and a camp ball where people can let go and plunder the dressing up box.

Make useful things and learn to mend and re-use in our Arts and craft area including Green woodworking.
Dance and Sing with Solar and bicycle powered bands and DJs across 3 stages.
Live well with cafes and small music venues including a variety of organic vegan and vegetarian caterers.
Learn new skills and discuss new ways of living in our Permaculture workshops.
Inform yourself with workshops and talks on ecological and political issues.
Wander around and appreciate our lovely Site Art.
Relax in our Healing garden including the Women's Red Tent.
Go wild and explore our Kid's activities and parades.
Sing, dance and be merry around the communal fire.
Drink in the bar selling local real ales.
Play and listen to some fine acoustic music.
Sweat in our Sauna and Spa.
Dress up for the Camp Ball on Saturday night.
Bring stuff to give away in our Free shop.
and much, much more.

Please come and be part of our gathering.

Tickets including camping are available from our website via Paypal or a downloadable booking form.
