29th Nottingham Green Festival

Sunday 11th September 2022

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.

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.
