The popular Neville’s Cross Ecofestival is back on the field after two years online. Held annually since 2008, this community and family-focused event is lots of fun and also highlights environmental and social justice matters. Entry is free to all, and the festival takes place in and around St John’s Church on Sunday 12th June from 11am until 4pm – come for the whole day or just call in for an hour or two.
There will be family activities, stalls from local groups, tea and home-made cakes, Fairtrade products, a swap shop, plant stall, Messy Church, a vegetarian barbecue and other food from the social enterprise REfUSE – and lots more! We have lined up a great range of live music playing all day from the local community and student groups, including the Neville’s Cross Community Choir, Neville’s Cross school and various acoustic, indy and rock bands.
This year’s theme is “Grounded” and focuses on the importance of healthy soil within the ecosystem. There will be short talks about this from a range of expert speakers on the hour every hour.
So whatever the weather, do come along and join in!
Ecofest 2021 combined online talks posted weekly through June with an Ecofest Picnic Church on the field behind the church.
The videos included information and updates on projects, initiatives and new ventures nearby and suggested eco-challenges people may wish to take up. They can be accessed by the red button below which links to the Ecofest YouTube channel (where you can also see last year’s interesting videos).
