Nottingham Green Festival – Sunday 15th September

PUBLISHED:

Nottingham Green Festival is now in its 27th year and 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.

Speakers Area Program

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides the place for everyone to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, while having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park.

Two stages of free live music are powered by solar panels and battery storage equipment. Outdoor entertainment and adult & children’s activities and workshops include stalls from small green businesses, craft workers, community groups, charities, campaigns, artisan food producers and vegan caterers. Sustainable and energy-saving technologies, transport and information are promoted. They encourage food vendors and stalls to operate with minimal or no plastic.
