Nottingham Green Picnic
18th May 2014
The 2014 Nottingham Green Festival was postponed from Sunday 18th May, and then cancelled due to the withdrawal of funding.
Those that were otherwise looking forward to the Green Festival gathered instead for a completely different and unconnected get-together - a Green Picnic.
This was an informal gathering in the public space at the Arboretum, just a few tram stops north of the City Centre.
Whilst this picnic was not run by the Nottingham Green Festival, it successfully generated support for the return of the event. To follow their progress, to make a donation or to join their mailing list visit NottmGreenFest.org.uk

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 100 people Eat Vegan we will “offset” 200 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
