Greenbelt Festival 2007

Just a reminder that the deadline for the cheapest tickets for the Greenbelt Festival is at the end of October, ie in a few minutes. However, due to unforseen whathaveyous you now have one more day to order your budget passes at the Greenbelt website. Talking of Greenbelt (tenuous link), you might remember that a…

Church Times Guide to Greenbelt 06

Church Times Guide to Greenbelt 06

This is the cover of the Church Times ‘Guide to Greenbelt’ for 2006. Last year, if you remember I did some Guide to Greenbelt cartoons, but this year a more ‘sample of the newspaper’ format was chosen which was fair enough really. I did the lettering for the cover (click the image to see it)…

Book signings

Book signings

Above: Signing copies of ‘The Dave Walker Guide to the Church’ in the Church Times yurt at Greenbelt. The reception wasn’t all quite this rapturous, but I had a great time sitting in the yurt for a number of spells over the weekend. Lovely to meet so many people enthusiastic about what I do. It…

At Greenbelt 2006

Holiday photograph 2

I know, what you really want is lovely pictures of the seaside, but for now I’m going to leave you with this ecumenical information to ponder whilst I’m away for the next week. We’re going to my parents in Wales for a little wedding celebration with some people from my home town and then to…

Greenbelt Festival

Greenbelt Festival

This is a sample from my Guide to Greenbelt booklet from last year – you can see the whole thing online here. I love Greenbelt for lots of reasons, one of the main ones being that I get to see lots of nice people. We have an annual gathering for the Wibsite bloggers (last year’s…

Cheltenham Bible Festival

Cheltenham Bible Festival

The Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches is now competing with the Greenbelt festival on its own quite literal turf. The ‘Bible Festival’ will be at the Cheltenham racecourse from the 7th to the 9th of August 2007 (Thursday-Saturday to avoid festivalling on a Sunday). Their website will be biblefestival.com, but isn’t up and running yet….

Cartoon greetings cards

Cartoon greetings cards

As I mentioned the other day four of my cartoons are available as Greetings cards. The four designs are this one (above), ‘The young people‘, ‘Orange juice‘ and ‘My life broken down into segments‘ which I’ve just realised isn’t on the site anywhere in non-card form. I’m going to have a stall at the Christian…

The time I was Ned Flanders

The time I was Ned Flanders

[Click on the image to see a larger version] Neil reminded me of this last week. A number of us dressed up as Ned Flanders lookalikes at the Greenbelt festival a few years ago, and this is the report from the Daily Star. I’m the one at the top left, one in from the end,…

Christian Resources Exhibition 2006

Did I tell you that I will be having a stall at the Christian Resources Exhibition again next year? It’s the one in Esher, Surrey, from 9 – 12 May 2006. This year I am in the downstairs though, not in the tent bit. I need an idea to make my stall a little different…

GodBlogCon and why that is a rubbish name

In America they have been having a convention of Christian Bloggers called GodBlogCon. It sounds like people had a nice time. These things quite often are especially if there is good catering. There have been calls for something similar in the UK from Richard and this blogger. It sounds OK, (depending on the catering) but…

Greenbelt toilets: an official response

I’ve had a very nice comment from someone at Greenbelt about my cartoon booklet and the loos. I thought I’d repost it here so it doesn’t get lost. Dave, I’m part of the leadership team for the operations side of greenbelt. Thanks very much for the guide to greenbelt. I loved it. I don’t know…

Greenbelt 2005

Back from Greenbelt and have showered, slept and had a little wander round the internet to read other people’s reflections on the festival. I will be posting some photographs of Greenbelt and our Wibsite gathering with some links in the next day or two along with reflections on one or two of the more interesting…
