Green credentials

Croissant Neuf Summer Party boasts some seriously green credentials. Every aspect of the festival takes green issues to heart, from the organic nibbles and tipples sold at the stagger Inn to the recycling team and the magnificent Big Top that is powered entirely by solar panels without compromising on sound quality. With creative solutions such as planting 3 trees on site for every car that travels to the festival. Croissant Neuf has confirmed that festival goers at last year's Summer Party (2010) generated on average less than 50% of the CO2 than if they'd stayed at home and had a normal weekend.



Family friendly

Run by a family with families in mind, Croissant Neuf Summer Party creates a safe, welcoming haven to take the kids to. The community spirit is as prevalent as the green ethos that permeates the festival.

As well as great music expect internationally renowned street theatre, workshops of all kinds from dancing to bushcraft, open mic sessions, sports activities, and more.

Facilities

As with last years event, all of the facilities on site - the venues, eateries, bar, toilets and general lighting (basically everything) are completely solar powered.

Firm favourites from such as the Masquerade Ball and the stunning Lantern Procession will be making a return along with all kinds of new and exciting features that offer something for all the family!

Food and drink

All food and drink will be as organic as can be and sourced from local suppliers where possible. The fully licensed bar will be serving locally brewed organic beer and cider and pub nibbles. It also functions as a venue for impromptu live music. The second venue from last year, Café Seren, which hosted live music while serving fresh food is also expected to return. The dining area tent includes a cabaret stage and larger soft furnished area.

Boutique camping

The offer of luxury onsite accommodation in the form of incredibly posh, yet reasonably priced yurts is expected to be available again in 2010.

More information will be here when available.
