Bethlehem Unwrapped at Greenbelt

Dear Greenbelt Festival friends,

We were delighted to welcome a 3000-strong audience to our mini-Bethlehem Unwrapped Festival at Greenbelt on August 24 this year which included music, dance, spoken word, testimony, poetry and Tom Pursey’s wonderful short documentary about B/U at St James’s Piccadilly.

Justin welcomed Harry Baker and Dizraeli; Palestinian dancers Al-Zaytouna;  Catalan singer Clara Sanabras with partner Harvey Brough; Martyn Joseph and Garth Hewitt .

Tipping Point’s Ho-Chih recorded highlights from the event and if you’d like to get a taste of what a WONDERFUL afternoon it was, click here!


We were thrilled to welcome Revd Lindsay Meader and two of the brilliant  Bethlehem Unwrapped WALL stewards, Debbie O’Brien and Mary Stewart, from St James’s Piccadilly. They shared their experiences and insights of the two weeks – and Linda Ramsden, director of ICAHD UK gave us all a reminder that, post Gaza, we need to be more engaged than ever.

There was an update on Leila Sansour’s film ‘Open Bethlehem’ and its forthcoming preview on 24th September at the RGS in London – and once again, we thanked Trust Greenbelt and all GB supporters for their ongoing backing for the film.

So, a huge thanks to all who came and for giving us such a memorable day at Greenbelt 2014…

Deborah, Justin & Ho-Chih
