The Peace Festival is the UK's only remaining free Festival in the heart of Leamington provides visitors with a brilliant mix of family friendly activities, workshops, Peace Talks, entertainment, brilliant free music, and a wide range of vegetarian only food stalls and environmentally conscious stalls.
The weekend, now in it's 40th year, allows people of all ages to come and find out about ways of living life in a more harmonious way; with each other and the environment.
This includes: environmental harmony and living in cooperation with others; enabling organisations and individuals to participate during the festival weekend; raising awareness of world and local issues by giving individuals ways of becoming involved in the world around them; providing an opportunity for local crafts people to demonstrate their skills and display their crafts; promoting fair trade practices and encouraging local artists and entertainers to share their skills.
This year the festival runs over Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th June 2019. Music is one of the main attractions during the festival; it provides an opportunity to witness the fusion of musical media and different cultures providing the soundtrack to an exciting and enjoyable weekend.
Music is interspersed with talks on peace and other global issues. There are no acts confirmed yet for 2019.
