THE VERDANT VENUE 1983
an alternative humorous view of the Green Gathering
In 1983 a young author and illustrator called Pete Loveday found himself at the infamous Green Gathering at Lamberts Hill Farm.
After encounters with various aspects of the alternative/green scene in his home town Russell decides he needs to get away and sets off to hitchhike to "The Verdant Venue".
Each day in the run-up to this year's Green Gathering at Chepstow starting from Monday 9th July we will bring you another episode from Russell's adventures as he experiences "The Verdant Venue" - a festival you will find strangely familiar if you have ever visited any Green Gathering.
