One of Green Dragon’s first stages in 2003 was High Head Green Gathering at High Head Sculpture Valley in Cumbria.
The Thornborough festival was conceived to highlight quarrying around the important neolithic site of the Thornborough Henges. The Brainchild of George Chaplin and Matty Jacobs, the festival ran for 5 years 2003-2008 on several beautiful sites in North Yorkshire including Lime Tree Farm near Grewelthorpe.
Green dragon provided an army marquee, solar power and pa for a small stage at the Thornborough Henges for several years.
Green Dragon ran the Gatherer’s Stage at Cockrock 3 years in a row, as well as hosting a jam space. The adult, sane corner of a crazy festival.
Green Dragon spent a couple of years powering a toilet block at this nice festival with plenty of seats and campervan spaces.
