A ‘photo-essay’ describing the Nottingham Green Festival with pictures from 2005 – 2018
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. It 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.
We are proud to run the event ‘off-grid’. Free live music is 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. Stalls share information about domestic energy saving, insulation and reducing carbon emissions. Re-use, repair and recycling are encouraged by organisations like Hackspace, Repair Cafe and Bike Co-op. Sustainable and energy-saving technologies, transport and information are promoted. We encourage food vendors and stalls to operate with minimal or no plastic.
We are aware that personal and community learning and changing are best achieved in a happy positive environment, not by being immobilised by threats of doom. The joyous and relaxed atmosphere of the Green Festival is a perfect event to help people accept serious lifestyle change and look to working within their friendship circles to promote these necessary changes
We attract a wide spread of local people of all ages, and plan further efforts to make the site safer for people with disabilities, despite the increasing crowds. We make provision to serve the many local communities but must always work to improve the event.
