What is a Green Festival?
Our Green Festivals are a series of events designed to educate and engage with communities to make more sustainable choices in their day-to-day lives.
The events are free to attend and with various stalls managed by local people, small businesses, and groups, there are plenty of fun activities for all ages including arts and crafts, music, local food vendors and games.
And that's a wrap!
Thank you to all of our residents and stallholders for coming along and supporting our Green Festival on Saturday 23 September.
We had a brilliant range of stallholders from food to arts and crafts to pedal powered smoothie making! With over 30 stalls it was the biggest Green Festival Broxtowe Borough Council has hosted.
This year we also used our brand-new electric generator to power the event! It has solar panels that allow us to top up on energy throughout the day, we might even be using this for other events in the new year.
More than 300 people joined us to learn about how we can be more environmentally friendly and tackle climate change, whilst supporting local businesses and community groups.
Keep an eye out on our platforms as we will be sharing news about the next event soon. If you didn’t get a chance to attend this year or if you’re interested in having a stall to promote your sustainable business or community group, watch this space!
