Green Festival Fundraiser

Nottingham Green Festival is a grass-roots event, run by volunteers as a cooperative, with no regular statutory funding.

Funds need to be raised to ensure that the event continues on Sunday 17th September 2017 – and beyond.

The festival has been blessed by the support of many great bands, kids entertainers and spoken word performers, some of who will entertain us at Sumac each month.

As well as many small green businesses & craft workers, the event has provided outreach for most local ‘green’ campaigns, who will be invited to present at Sumac each time.

The evening will begin with a ‘People’s Kitchen’ meal, provided by one of the great caterers that appeared at the Green Festival.

Please come and enjoy the evening, add some funds and find out how you can give practical support to Nottingham Green Festival.

Support the event with small donation. Click to donate with PayPal, or credit/debit cards (via small link on Paypal page) or see other options on the Fundraising page.
