Nottingham Green Festival 2017

Nottingham Green Festival 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.

Nottingham’s own Green Festival provides 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.

Veggies has catered and campaigned at the Green Festival, and the Peace Festival before it, for our entire 33 year history. We were pleased to be joined at the 2016 event by 5 other vegan caterers and many other artisan food producers, supporting the events’ new vegan ethos and building on a thirty+ year meat-free policy.

Despite a break in 2014, the 2015 & 2016 Green Festivals broke all records in terms of visitors & stalls.

With your support it will be even bigger & better in 2017.

You are therefore encouraged to support the regular fundraising events and join in with the planning group meetings.

This will be the 25th Nottingham Green Festival so mark the date : 17-9-17
