12-6pm Leazes Park
The festival offers a huge range of entertainment, activities, workshops and information to spread a message of environmental protection and social justice……and all running on green power sources.
Newcastle Community Green Festival is an annual, free event, now in its 16th year and is run entirely by a team of volunteers from the local community.
But also For the first time we are hosting the WEA / Co-op sustainability event; with a question time style panel including Newcastle MP Chi Onwurah, and Mayor Geoff O'Brien, at 12 noon till 1.30pm on the Saturday, and practical workshops for all ages organised by Science City throughout the weekend. On Sunday from 2-3.30pm there is the chance to hear what local environmental groups are doing and how you can get involved.
Ride your bicycle to the festival! There will be lots of cycle related activities over the weekend and a chance to have your trusty steed looked over by our on site bike doctor. Dedicated cycle racks will be available.
Circus skills a-plenty! The circus team is planning a real corker this year so come join in with juggling/hulahooping/plate-spinning and a whole lot more. Watch out for the extreme unicycling!
