Nottingham Green Festival

Date: Sunday 8th September 2024

Applications for 2024 are being processed, please be patient, as we are only a small team.

The festival is run by volunteers, all help much appreciated. If you can steward on the day, or help with planning and running the festival please fill this form in.


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.
