A free day out for the whole family, this exciting new micro-festival, situated in beautiful ancient woodland, will include an environmental arts trail of immersive installations, live music, performance art, spoken word, story-telling, delicious food and inspiring talks.
Funded by Arts Council England and Postcode Community Trust, there will be a host of fun and engaging workshops and activities for everyone of all ages to get involved.
Combining the brilliance of artists and forward thinkers from Birmingham and wider, we want to motivate everyone to protect the planet and encourage pro-environmental behaviour.
