About

The Plastic Free Festival is returning for 2022. The festival aims to be the one-stop place to help people to reduce their single-use plastics.

Special guests include Pride of Britain winners Amy and Ella Meek of Kids Against Plastic, who have given numerous TED talks, picked up countless pieces of litter, and influenced businesses, schools and thousands of young people around the world.

There will be a special plastic-free marketplace with stallholders selling products that encourage a plastic-free lifestyle, craft workshops for upcycling and recycling, food and drink, and live music and poetry performances.
