  1. You can have a campfire (bring a brazier); you can bring your own booze (just not to sell); the food is top quality and not overpriced, and the same goes for the bars. If you sometimes want to do something other than get messy and listen to music at a festival, you'll probably love The Green Gathering. Over 100 talks on topical issues and workshops in everything from tango dancing to wild food foraging, from spoon carving to laughter yoga, from songwriting to dowsing. The music's great, the stages are small - so you can get right up to the bands rather than seeing them as tiny specks in the distance or on a tv screen. Spring Advance Tickets are £95 from Bristol Ticket Shop: http://www.bristolticketshop.co.uk/eventdetails.aspx?e=13171 Check out the eFestivals reviews from 2015 and 2016. They're pretty good
  2. Latest from GG: So Green, such music, so much more... http://eepurl.com/cGr4gT
  3. The Green Gathering - line up so far is here - http://www.greengathering.org.uk/line-up/ with some big new announcements expected in a week or so! This festival is about so much more than music though - it's about changing lives and bettering the world and inspiring minds and making hearts sing!

    I don't know about the person's past, but yes you're right, it is someone new with a background in event security who now owns the Sunrise name.

    I don't think it'll be on the same site as 2014; there were a lot of complaints from residents about Sunrise that year, which I think would make it tricky for them to get a licence for that site again. If they have managed to convince the site to take them back, license restrictions on timings and noise will be severe.
  6. The Green Gathering has a large and fantastic Crafts Village which is expanding even more in 2017! It's one of the most popular bits of the festival, check out some info here: http://www.greengathering.org.uk/crafts/
  7. Latest Green Gathering news - earlybirds end date and live acts announced - http://eepurl.com/cxEh9j Earlybird tickets (£85 including booking fee) ALMOST GONE! Get yours here http://www.bristolticketshop.co.uk/eventdetails.aspx?e=13171

  9. The Green Gathering will be back in its gorgeous location, just 18 miles from Bristol, 3rd-6th August 2017. New website launched today www.greengathering.org.uk with EARLYBIRD TICKETS £85 from Bristol Ticket Shop until they run out. Just a few acts announced so far - its early days - One Eyed God (punk-ska-reggae), BAAB (Swedish folk with a difference), The Antipoet (cabaret-meets-poetry-meets-punk/folk), Banjo Bill Lloyd (Appalachian, Bluegrass, Irish, and Traveller tunes), Creedy (psychedelic folk) and The Wierdstring Band (a whole lot of strings, humour and an 'anarchist ceilidh'). The Green Gathering usually has a good and eclectic selection of bands across intimate and outdoor stages; and a whole lot of other stuff too. More workshops, debates, crafts, and interesting stuff to engage with than most festivals except the real biggies like Glastonbury... all in a 5000-person festival that's easy to get around and about as friendly and laid back as anyone could hope for. With reasonably priced bars, really good food, loads for families to do, spacious campsites... it's good.
  10. So the line-up's shaping up nicely and The Green Gathering is in today's efestivals news: http://www.efestivals.co.uk/news/16/160318e.shtml (thanks guys!) Live-in vehicle tickets are selling fast and will definitely run out, and dog tickets have almost sold out (you need to buy at least one adult ticket to buy a vehicle or dog pass). Adult Spring Special tickets are £95. The price will rise in summer so get 'em while the daffodils are out Ticket Shop here: http://www.bristolticketshop.co.uk/eventdetails.aspx?e=10222 Website here: www.greengathering.org.uk And latest newsletter here: http://eepurl.com/bUbefj Such a lovely festie, do come!
  11. Earlybird tickets to The Green Gathering have sold out, next tier is Spring Special tickets at £95... ticket shop. Line-up so far: 3 Daft Monkeys, The Ukrainians, Tarantism, Hoopy Frood, Here & Now, Seize The Day, Kangaroo Moon, Echo Town, Dohnut, Tetchi, Edd Donovan and the Wandering Moles, Pagan Love Cult, Tess of the Circle, The Electric Brains, Neil Pike... more tba. Tons of workshops, talks, crafts, campaigns, permaculture, spoken word, renewable energy and low impact living stuff too. Fab kids' area. Look in eFestivals reviews for more info, they did us a stonking one last year - that's stonking not stinking also www.greengathering.org.uk If you haven't been yet, try it. If you like lots of open space, nature to wander in, random acoustic musicians and friendly folk to sit round fires with, and new stuff to explore and try your hand at, as well as great music in a lot of different genres... then you'll probably like The Green Gathering a lot.

    I heard they haven't totally given up... although it seems pretty late to pull something out of the bag for this year, at this stage! If you have 2016 tickets it's possible, if there's no Sunrise, that you'll be offered a swap for another festie. So keep your ears pricked
  13. YAY. Good news. Good on the crew
  14. True what admin and Paul say here... and also, I've just heard that the folks who're going to start the new festi (the phoenix rising with all the good bits of Alchemy intact) will honour Alchemy tickets as a goodwill gesture, even though they haven't got the ticket money!! This means it will be harder for them to be financially stable, so they really need our support. They'll be making more statements (and probably launching a website etc) soon
  15. On the old website there's an email address to write to if you've already bought tickets for 2016. This appears to be set up by the folks aiming to set up a new grassroots festi of the kind we all love, hopefully a phoenix rising from the Alchemy ashes: festivaltickets2016@outlook.com
