Penwith Green Fair returns to St John’s Hall Penzance this year, with a wider variety of stall-holders than ever before.
Over 20 community groups, green businesses and environmental organisations will be taking part in this year’s event, which will take place on Easter Saturday (15th April) between 10am and 2.30pm.
Information and ideas will be available on a number of topics, including the refugee crisis, human rights and the burgeoning vegan movement. There will also be plenty of opportunity to buy cakes, plants and other goods.
Among this year’s new exhibitors will be Redwing Arts and Friends of Golowan, bringing a new community arts dimension to the event.
The Green Fair, which has been held in Penzance every Easter for over 30 years, brings together in one place most of the local organisations which seek to put green ideas into action. Jonathan How, one of the event’s organisers, said: “The Green Fair gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy and celebrate the ideas and businesses that can make a real difference to people’s lives in West Cornwall”.
“If you want to find out more about what’s going on locally, the Green Fair is a great place to get inspiration”, added Green Cornwall Councillor for St Ives East Tim Andrewes. “The variety of stalls gives a great overall view of the Green movement – and reminds us what we can do if we work together for the common good”.
As well as stalls and displays, there will be refreshments and music on offer, including Penzamba and local duo Privy Chamber. Admission is free and all are welcome.
