Fair for South Brent

16 July @ 11:00 am - 4:30 pm BST

Saturday 16 July 2022: Fair for South Brent 11am – 4.30pm at Palstone Park. – A free to enter, enjoyable day out, with loads of stalls and activities for all the family, great food and drink and some fabulous entertainment.

Having been postponed several times since 2020, what was previously known as the ‘climate fair’ is being replanned by a Fair Organising Team. The idea originally arose in response to the ambition to make South Brent and other communities carbon neutral by 2030 and is an initiative of Sustainable South Brent, supported by South Brent Parish Council, Rattery Parish Council and South Brent Community Energy Society.

The Fair will be loosely zoned around the areas of: Community Engagement, Nature, Transport, Waste, Energy and Food & Land and we hope to offer a fun event that will involve a wide range of village groups and organisations and be accessible to all sections of the community (not just ’green-minded’ people). We hope it will engage, inspire and inform as many people as possible in discussions and activities to help focus on how we can all do our bit to help reduce waste, cut emissions, save energy, use land and produce food sustainably, restore our countryside, engage in ‘active travel’ and generally support a local community “where people and nature thrive.”

Here’s a taste of what’s on offer: a special ‘Timescape’ marquee, with exhibitions and activities looking at the past, present and future; a drop-in, fun parent/child science workshop, using thermal imaging cameras and VR headsets for local underwater footage; try your hand at pole-lathing or short-mat bowls; make your own cleaning products; grab a bargain at a jumble sale; find out how to upcycle clothes; or discover how to measure your carbon footprint to reveal ways to reduce your energy costs – something for everyone!

Visitors are please urged to walk, cycle, go by bus or car share if possible. There will be very limited on-site parking for disabled only, and limited parking nearby
