Salena Godden is an award-winning author, poet and broadcaster. A Green Gathering favourite, we can't wait to welcome her back to our variety stage, The Raconteurs' Delight, for another incredible spoken word performance.

“I’ve always been a Salena-shaped Salena and I’ve always done what the hell I like,” she said, in a Guardian interview in 2021. “I think I’m just very wriggly and I don’t like boxes – whether we’re talking about race or age or class or my work as an artist. I’ve never really felt like I fitted in anywhere, and the best job to do when you don’t feel like you’re invited is just to make your own party and make your own thing.”

We love it when Salena brings her party to our festival!
