The Green Festival, now in its 9th year, originally started in opposition to building plans for Leazes Park, is now a community festival offering positive solutions to environmental problems.

News: Due to a Heritage Lottery redevelopment grant, there is extensive redevelopment and tree planting currently taking place in Leazes Park so the festival is having a temporary change of venue moving to Exhibition Park for this year only.

Providing a showcase for local musicians and performers - bands confirmed so far include Keiretsu, Funk Conspiracy and the Psychedelic Breakfast. The festival also includes arts, performance, DJs, bands, and cabaret, as well as food, stalls and organic beer.

There are plenty of FREE hands on arts, heritage and childrenÂ’s activities to take part in including graffiti and spray paint workshops, green woodworking, Northumberland crafts, drumming, juggling and circus skills workshops. This year, there will be an elementals maze made from natural materials and you can help make a peace dome. Visitors can learn how they can improve their environment, and experience alternative therapies in the healing area. A fireshow will round off the festival on Sunday evening.

The Green Festival is open from 12noon until 6pm on Saturday and from 12noon until 10.30pm on Sunday during the last Bank Holiday weekend in May.
