28th Nottingham Green Festival
Sunday 12th September 2021
12 noon to 6pm . Free
Nottingham Green Festival is organised by grass roots community based volunteers, not-for-profit and with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and sustainability / environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the FREE one day event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of Nottingham Peace Festival from which it grew.
Check out the Live Music on the Bandstand. And more at the Buskers Zone by the Tunnel.
The Knowledge Garden
2019 saw the launch of a Speakers Area with panels & breakout discussions in the Rose Garden. This was a huge success so additional volunteer support will help developed the initiative for the 2021 event.
