Greenbelt Festival which takes place in the grounds of Boughton House, near Kettering in Northamptonshire, from Friday 24th to Monday 27th August 2018, has announced it's banning single-use plastic.

They're targeting single-use plastic bottles, which they're banning from the festival.

Festival goers are being encouraged to bring their own re-usable bottle - or they can buy on site - which will be able to be refilled from one of many on-site drinking water taps. The single-use bottle ban applies absolutely everywhere onsite – so volunteers, crew and artists will also be sipping from reusable bottles.

Fizzy soft drink bottles are also banned, although drinks will still be available, in more-recyclable cans.

Nice one! 

Greenbelt Festival is an all-age inclusive friendly arts festival with its roots in the Christian faith which offers a host of world music, international and home-grown acts from big names to new artists.  Greenbelt is a place to learn, to experience, to be. As well as music the festival hosts a selection of varied talks, workshop and debates; exploring contemporary issues, faith, social justice, politics ­and more. 

No acts have been announced for 2018 yet.

Tickets are on sale, currently priced at £155 for adults, £109 for concessions, £85 for 18-25s, £50 for youths (15-17), £50 for children (5-14). Infants and carers can attend free but require a ticket. Instalment options are available.
