Where faith, arts and justice meet

When: Friday 22nd – Monday 25th August 2014
Where: Boughton House, Kettering

A festival of artists, thinkers and activists for an all-age community of the same. Greenbelt is home to all those in search of a better world…

Greenbelt is a collision of the arts, faith and justice. Engaged with culture, inspired by the arts, sustained by faith, we aspire to be an open generous community reimagining the Christian narrative for the present moment.

Our mission is to create spaces, like festivals, where art, faith and justice collide.

This mission is primarily lived out annually, over the August Bank Holiday weekend when we host a rich programme of music, visual and performing arts, spirituality, comedy, and talks and discussion. The diversity of content not only demonstrates our commitment to the arts, faith and justice, but also our underlying values of tolerance, dialogue and hope.

Our history is firmly rooted within a Christian tradition which is world-affirming, politically and culturally engaged. Ours is a belief that embraces instead of excludes. And, as such, the festival is family-friendly celebration, inclusive and accepting of all, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, background or belief.
