As the highlight of the annual calendar for thousands of members, activists and supporters of the Green movement, Britain's largest and liveliest Green event returns. This festival offers many of the greener highlights that you might find at Glastonbury or Womad, with the emphasis on a healthy family-friendly atmosphere.

Music, in at least three renewably-powered venues, is eclectic. Rather than concentrating on big-name bands, there is a wide range of genres on offer including traditional folk, well-dread stylie reggae, hip hop, and carnival to Eastern European and tribal dance. Performances take place in the Croisssant Neuf tent, on the Small World Stage and others. Most of the bands have now been confirmed. Click here for details.

There are substantial safe spaces for healing, holistic health workshops and therapies; poetry, comedy, cabaret, and burlesque dance in the theatre areas; singing, dance, drumming and drama workshops; a Green Futures Forum; Green Markets and Crafts area; sustainable homes and permaculture areas; vegetarian food only - and mostly organic; kids' areas for all ages; the bike-powered Groovy Moovie tent; and Rinky-Dink, a mobile cycle-powered sound system.

TICKETS: These are now available to buy online - click here. They cost £95. There's an extra charge for vehicles (£5 - motorcycles, £25 - cars + £25 - caravans /£40 - campervans with an extra £5 charge for vehicles over 5m long) although disabled parking is free. You will still have to pay at the gate if you don't get a pass when you buy your ticket.
