The Green Gathering at Chepstow
By George Miles in GLD Challenge magazine 2019-20
This is the best festival in Britain, with live music, healing, storytime, a tipi circle, dance, crafts, saunas, Permaculture and a Campaigns Area with many tents of talks and workshops like the Speakers Forum.
So many teachers - Paul Mobbs, Simon Fairlee, Roger Hallam, Molly Scott Cato MEP, Caroline Lucas MP, Shannon Smy etc etc.
One year they had Green Party deputy leadership hustings there. I try to spend half my time in that tent.
Best was an hour talk by Nik Turner of his adventures with Hawkwind!
I first went in 1983 as a young liberal.
