Sustainable St Albans – SustFest Market Takeover

The Sustainability Festival 2019 is taking over the St Albans Market for a whole day on Sunday 19th May!  It’s all about how local residents can reduce their carbon footprint and live more sustainably.

We are interested in any organisation that wants to take part: we already have lots of organisations booked for the event, and we still have spaces for more! Whether you want a stall, can run an activity, or play music, juggle or dance!

The Market Takeover – from 11am to 5pm – will have food/drink stalls, live music and other entertainment, children’s activities, and environmental charity stalls.

We have a huge display of electric vehicles, electric bikes, pedal bikes, local youth groups and other stalls that promote sustainability and reducing your carbon footprint with a focus on the five main things residents can do to reduce your carbon footprint and live sustainably.
