The UK’s biggest eco-festival returns to Bristol this summer with over 120 free events including talks, poetry, art, comedy and workshops.
Bristol has been named the European Green Capital 2015, so where better to hold an eco-festival which highlights the importance of community, well-being, social enterprise and connection, than in the green capital itself.
Running from 6th-21st of June, the nine day festival will be crammed with eco-friendly activities that can be enjoyed by all the family. Wander up the Cascade Steps in Bristol City Centre and you will find the ‘Hub’, a melting pot of inspiring and thought provoking ideas with inspirational talks from a myriad of guest speakers.
Each day at 15:00, Cass Art will be running the ‘Cass Art Canvas’, a collaborative art installation that is determined to fill the city with artists. The art initiative will see all of the artists come together in co-creating one massive work of art on the same canvas, with the theme focusing on Bristol’s love of a greener future.
On Saturday 20th June, there will be a talk from Stephen Clarke, Co-founder of the Bristol Pound, the UKs first citywide local currency; a pioneering project which has been hugely inspirational for other community projects across the UK.
So, come and join the 50,000 visitors who are flocking to Bristol to celebrate the arts and entertainment on offer at this year’s eco-festival.
