Taking five young people from the Cre8 Music project to Greenbelt Festival was a massive success.
Days were spent wandering round the festival - checking out some of the amazing performances, acts, talks and art that happens at Greenbelt.
The experience was pretty different to anything any of them had been to before but they all really got into the spirit of Greenbelt and went to things they probably wouldn't normally consider going anywhere near.
The Silent Disco was a big hit (weirdest thing I've been to!), Aaron enjoyed the Iona Community Big Sing and a talk about football(?). Black Rebel Motorcycle Club was loud but fun. The Boxettes were amazing - we all stood watching them with mouths open going 'nah she can't be making all those noises - no way'! Folk On were bonkers as always, and the food stalls were amazing (if expensive!)
The 'official' Cre8 trip also met up and camped with folks from Cre8 and Camas who were taking time off and enjoying the festival. Thanks to them for cooking and helping out with the group.
Definitely think we'll take a group again next year - hopefully with some families as well. Thanks to Tom for organising (and doing some interesting food shopping!)
