This year, for the first time in 15 years I am actually going to camp for the whole weekend at Greenbelt next weekend. And I am very excited!
Attractions I am looking forward to (in no particular order):
Lies Damned Lies
John Tavener (oh my goodness, very excited about this one!)
Theo Hobson recreating The Mummer’s Play (very much about play, ritual etc)
Chas and Dave!!!
I am hoping to be able to update the site from the festival, looking into that.
A London advertising planner, Faris Yakob, has been conducting a tongue-in-cheek investigation in festivals as liminal spaces (spaces in-between, where the normal social rules are in flux, from the latin limen meaning doorway), which basically means attending them and enjoying himself. Bravo.
I think he might be right though and I am hoping the festival provides a genuinely exploratory space for me this year and that the veil between earth and heaven will be thin. And that’s the last thing I am looking forward to very much, Wild Goose worship with the Iona Community, a place where the veil is thin all the time.
