Come and join us at our Eco Fest in Accrington Town Centre on Saturday 13th August 2022, 10am – 4pm, where we'll be celebrating all things green and environmentally friendly, with a day packed full of free, family friendly activities!
There'll be live music on the mainstage, including Johnny Elvis singing a selection of Elvis Presley classics, Liam Paul performing a set of acoustic covers, Haslingden Brass Band, Blackburn Festival of Light samba band and a dhol drummer.
Alongside the musicians, there'll be a demonstration of chainsaw carving from Acorn Woodcraft, a youth speaker from environmental charity Greenpeace, a children’s magic show and a selection of electric vehicles from Chorley Nissan.
Other local charities and organisations will be joining us, including the Ribble Rivers Trust, Woody (Hyndburn) CIC, Go Velo cycling, North Lancs Training Group, Lancashire Badger Group, Greenpeace, the Baby Bank, Snowdrop Doula and the Food Pantry.
Visitors to the Prospects Foundation stall can make a free plant terrarium and pick up a goody bag of free gifts!
Please spread the word to your family and friends and help us to make the Eco Fest a day to remember.
We need volunteers for the event!
We're looking for volunteers to help us on the day and in the run up to the event - for example, helping to look after stalls and marshall people, or helping to pack up goody bags. If you or someone you know would like to get involved please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
