The independent charity Peterborough Environment City Trust (PECT) is delighted to announce that its annual Green Festival is back – bigger and better than ever before! This year the event is heating up, moving to a new summertime date of Saturday 13th August, with fringe events running through to 21st August.
In addition to this, the charity is thrilled to announce that the festival has been awarded Arts Council England funding for a three-year period, bringing a fantastic £73,500 funding into the city.
This funding will be used to commission artists to create innovative artworks for the Festival – whether its street theatre, visual art or spoken word – to promote sustainable living and encourage people to take positive actions for their local and global environment.
The 2016 festival has been sponsored by Travelchoice, which will also allow sustainable transport to be highlighted in exciting and thought-provoking ways.
Bringing together attractions, community groups, charities and businesses, the event celebrates everything ‘green’ in Peterborough with a wide variety of events and activities running, offering plenty of free fun for the whole family.
