Nottingham Green Festival
1st September 2013
The 2015 Green Festival on Sunday 6th September.|
This is the diary listing for the 22nd Nottm Green Festival in 2013. The event is organised by grass routes community based volunteers, with no statutory funding. The ethical standards and environmental / human / animal rights ethos of the event are long established, having evolved from the pre-history of the Nottm Peace Festival from which it has grown.
So if are able to run a fund-raiser, book a stall for your group, or encourage others to do so, that might make all the difference in ensuring the success of Nottingham's own green festival, the place for the whole family to learn, explore and try the latest in everything environmentally friendly and ethical, whilst also having lots of fun in the beautiful setting of the Arboretum Park, Waverley Street / Addison Street, a couple of minutes from Nottingham's Old Market Square.
This event has over 100 product, information and food stalls, kids rides, workshops, alternative therapies and technologies, live performers, entertainments throughout the park, live music bands performing from the bandstand and Veggies Catering nearby.

Veggies has catered at the annual Nottingham Green Festival every year ever - this'll be our 28th time - so we highly recommend it as a great opportunity for vegan outreach: trading, campaigning or fundraising.
It would be great to see a 'vegan village' at the event, amongst the 100+ stalls & 10,000 visitors.
The Green Festival aims to provide a family event aimed at our whole community.
Immerse them in a wholly natural atmosphere of live music and dance, re-cycled arts and nature themed workshops, organic & natural food and local allotment and plant stalls. Also natural cosmetics and fair trade and wildlife stalls, alternative energy and natural health.
A multitude of stalls with expertise and information sharing, to raise awareness and encourage ethical living and friendliness and a greater understanding towards our threatened environment.
Live music and entertainment at the Bandstand has been organised by Sweetpotato Promotions.
Vegan Festival within the Green Festival
For 6 years, from 2005 – 2009, Veggies and other vegan campaigners helped organise the East Midlands’ Vegan Festival which welcomed over 2000 members of the public each year to the Council House on Nottingham’s Old Market Square.
However the Council House have refused to host future events, so the Vegan Festival team are very grateful to the Nottingham Green Festival for providing space to hold a Vegan Festival within the Green Festival.
We invite you to book your stall in the usual way then contact Veggies to join the 'vegan village' space together with Veggies Catering Campaign, in and around our marquee near the Bandstand.
We hope that adding the thousands that attend the many Vegan Festivals around the UK with the thousands that attend the Green Festival will make an event truly not to be missed.
Veggies Climate Change Campaigns
To get to this event, 1.4 miles from our Sumac Centre base, Veggies may emit approx 2kg CO2.
However by helping an estimated 600 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 1200 kg CO2.
If ONE customer goes Vegan For Life, they will save 1.5 tonnes CO2 every year, as well as saving 4022 animals lives, and enabling all the world’s peoples to receive a Fair Share of the world’s resources. [carbon calculation references]

Whenever possible Veggies feature the publications of the Movement for Compassionate Living, which we print and distribute to promote simple living and vegan self-reliance as a remedy to the exploitation of humans, animals and the Earth.
We also support our nominated charity, Vegfam, ‘Feeding the hungry without exploiting animals’. If you can help us with either of these projects at this event, whilst we are busy with Veggies catering, please email email@example.com.
