The Green Festival

A small percentage of my bank holiday weekend was spent at The Green Festival - a very small version of Glastonbury in a park in the city centre of Newcastle [yes, that small]. It’s great because as you sit in the middle of a clump of trees listening to some nice folky music, you can pretend you’re at some kind of festival in the middle of the countryside [like er.. Glastonbury] which is all well and good until you look up and see St James’ Park towering above like something from the set of ‘Close Encounters…‘.
