Green Festival Fundraiser

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

All reserves were used up in putting on the 2015 event, so funds need to be raised to ensure that the event continues on Sunday 17th Sepember 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, one of which 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.

Community Circle

In Nottingham we have a quiet revolution going on.

We have MakerSpaces, community focused markets and gardens, food collectives, small shops, skills exchanges, fix-it stalls and swapshops. Alongside them we have the rise of homegrown slow food, baked bread made from organic flour from our windmill, bicycles and walking. Operating on a human scale together we are creating an earth-friendly economy and becoming the heart of healthy neighbourhood. These are direct challenges to the consumer society in its expansive earth damaging form.

NG Circle is part of this challenge.

Together we demonstrate how magic can happen when we start talking, listening and trusting each other.
