Since my first Greenbelt in 2000 the festival has come to mark the beginning of a new year. Perhaps we are all conditioned in childhood by school terms to see September as a beginning anyway, but for me Greenbelt each year marks ends and beginnings, a time to reflect on the past year with people I only see once a year, and to be thankful that we are all there once again. A meeting place on all our journeys.
自2000年我第一次举办绿带节以来，这个节日标志着新的一年的开始。 也许我们每个人都受过学校教育的制约，无论如何都将9月视为开端，但对我来说，格林贝尔（Greenbelt）每年都是开端和开端，是时候与我一年只见过一次的人一起回顾过去的一年，并要感恩我们再次都在那里。 我们所有旅途中的聚会场所。
Highlights this year were, as is so often the case at Greenbelt, the unplanned things that we didn’t expect to happen. Beer and Hymns in the Organic Beer Tent has to be one of the funniest and most refreshing of experiences – and I’m not just talking about the beer! The same evening we got to the Performance Cafe early to ensure a decent seat for Bell Jar on Sunday evening, and were in time to catch a set by Levi Weaver, who was fantastic. The Living Generously area this year in the Pulse seemed well attended, and in prime position for people who were hanging around waiting for another batch of Pru’s brownies to come out of the oven! We also got to enjoy a set by the fantastic Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain on the all new main stage.
与Greenbelt一样，今年的亮点是我们没有想到的未计划的事情。 有机啤酒帐篷中的啤酒和赞美诗必须是最有趣，最令人耳目一新的体验之一–我不仅在谈论啤酒！ 当天晚上，我们提早到达了表演咖啡厅，以确保在周日晚上为贝尔·贾尔（Bell Jar）提供一个体面的座位，并及时赶上了Levi Weaver的精彩表演。 今年，Pulse的“慷慨居住区”似乎参加得很好，对那些徘徊在等待另一批Pru核仁巧克力饼从烤箱中出来的人们来说，这是一个绝佳的位置！ 我们还必须在全新的主舞台上欣赏梦幻般的英国尤克里里管弦乐队的演出。
It was always going to be a bit of a strange festival for me this year as the Small Person wasn’t arriving until late Saturday night, making a “celebrity arrival” straight from the West End stage, brought by my parents to whom I am massively grateful for ensuring that we all got to greenbelt at all! It was strange to be without her for the first two days, but I’m so happy we all got to spend Sunday and Monday of the festival together – and get her back to the theatre in time for her show on Monday night!
