Just two weeks to go until the Green Festival in Eastwood!

08/09/23 - With only two weeks until the fun-filled event that encourages us all to make small, sustainable choices and care for our environment, there are plenty of activities for residents to look forward to.

The FREE to attend festival will take place on Saturday 23 September at Coronation Park in Eastwood, 12.00pm-3.00pm. A crowd of people looking at stalls

There’s something for everyone at the Green Festival. Those with an interest in good food can look forward to trying tasty vegan snacks from Veggies and for dessert, residents can make their own ice cream with Pulp Friction. For a hot drink, attendees can purchase a delicious coffee from Frothy’s coffee van so don’t forget to bring a reusable coffee cup.

Residents can find plenty of pre-loved clothes, toys and books at Broxtowe Borough Council’s thrift stall to extend the life of items, avoid wasting resources that can still be used and get away from fast fashion.

Women in Tandem will be offering adjustments, repairs and lots of frie ndly advice through their free Dr. Bike service. Residents with a bike in need of repair can book their free appointment online (Opens in a new window).

From Mary Broddle Embroidery for Wellbeing’s free mending workshops to expert advice from the Bumblebee Conservation Trust on our very important bumblebees and how to help them, these are just some of the stalls the Council has in store. Residents can find a full list of stalls and activities on our Green Festivals page (Opens in a new window).

Residents can bring their pups and pooches to the event and enter the Neighbourhood Wardens’ dog show. The classes are FREE to enter and there are prizes up for grabs for the 1st place winners. The check-in desk opens at 12pm with the show starting at 12.30pm.

Portfolio Holder for Environment, Councillor Helen Skinner, said “This year’s Green Festival in Eastwood promises to be an interesting and enjoyable day out. We look forward to seeing residents of all ages learning more about Climate Change and how we can all work together to protect our environment.”

Don’t forget to bring a water bottle as free squash and water refills will be provided to help residents stay hydrated.

You can access Coronation Park via Plumptre Way in Eastwood. The 34 bus service which is run by Trent Barton and the rainbow one bus service travel directly past the park. Please use sustainable transport if you can, but if you do need to drive, limited parking is available at Coronation Park.
