Green Festival News – August 2018

Just 5 weeks til the Nottingham Green Festival but there us still plenty you can do to help keep it a great success. Join us if you can at an organising group meeting on Sunday 12th August at 4pm at Sumac Centre, or on Thursday 23rd Aug at 6pm.

Almost 100 stalls are now booked, inc many exciting new green businesses, vegan caterers, crafters, campaigns & voluntary groups. But there are still many regulars that have not confirmed. Time is running out. Bookings Will End Soon. Please do not miss out!

We are working towards being the UKs greenest green event. As well as being off-grid, Nottingham Green Festival favours stalls from within 40 miles, features all-vegan catering, encourages minimal waste & has free tea! organic & fairtrade of course. Food waste will be composted and we are working with the caterers to encourage minimal waste & to eliminate single use plastic. However we need more hands to do all the recycling & waste management that is necessary for a free event attracting 5000 people.


You may be interested to know that we have created a whole extra fringe festival zone, curated by Punk 4 The Homeless, at the Formal Gardens with addition stall space there and on the path around the cannons.

We’re also hoping for a Peace Picnic garden to launch Nottingham Peace Week and to mark CND’s 60th Anniversary.

We have 10,000 fliers (see them …here…)

Could you distribute some to promote the event?
They can be collected from:
Crocus Cafe, 18 Lenton Boulevard
Five Leaves Bookstall, near Market square
Green Emporium, Hayden Road Sherwood.
Sneinton Market (Saturdays)
Sumac Centre (Saturday evenings or by arrangement)

Please tell everyone about your plans on your social media.
Tag us in and we will spread the word: NottmGreenFest on Facebook and Twitter
