At GG HQ...
We've been watching this year's festival on film, thanks to Manuel Sarna - check it out, can you see anyone you know?
The Raconteurs' Delight
We've been getting fab feedback on GG 2016:
"...fun days and nights filled with great music, tasty food, fab drinks, beautiful people; everyone is so friendly and happy. Wanted to stay forever!"
"...just the right size, I felt happy and free, very reasonably priced nice food and drink, fantastic site - so spacious. Loos clean and plentiful!"
"...simply the BEST festival for wheelchair access and disabled people generally; excellent value..."
" ...stimulating conversations, happy people, lovely interactions, kindness from everyone..."
"...a month later we're still experiencing it's positive impact on our lives...”
The Craft Area
We know the shuttle minibuses experienced some hold-ups this year - partly due to a problem on the woodland track on Thursday, partly because a child of one of the drivers was ill, and partly - hands up - we misjudged demand. If you had a very long wait, we apologise. We'll do our best to fix it next time.
In our feedback survey we asked what else went wrong this year; the most common answer was... "nothing - it was perfect!"
I'm sure we'll find plenty to improve on, but that kind of feedback makes GG HQ happy indeed.

Our food and market stalls were so good this year, it was hard to pick the best for the Green Gathering Ethical Trader Awards.
The Coffee Box
We looked, we tasted, we pored over ethical policies and we mystery shopped. We chose:
These fabulous traders provided quality, ethically-sourced products with friendly service from great looking stalls. Chai Shop Organic, Coffee Cranks, Big Fab and Orla Bee were close runners-up!
The Woolly Pedlar
The Mayflower Project recorded live music and original songs created and performed in the Teens Tent on site; have a listen to their soundcloud.
