Now in its 40th year, the festival is where faith, justice and the arts collide. This year’s speakers include Clare Balding, Rev Richard Coles, Jim Wallis, Milton Jones, Francis Spufford, Lucy Winkett and the London Community Gospel Choir.

To celebrate 40 years since the first Greenbelt (23-26 August), threads has brought together brilliant members of our collective to speak on the topic: When I’m 40, I hope…

The talks will take a subversive look at all those things society says we’re supposed to have achieved by the time we’re 40.

If you’re at Greenbelt, do come and say hello – below are the times and days for our talks, which take place in GTV: The Treehouse. If you’re not, then whyever not? After the festival, we’ll also be posting the videos on our website, so you don’t miss out.
