Bristol's Big Green Week

 

Fun for all the family!

 

 

Being green is always at the forefront of everyone's mind. It's in newspapers, TV, radio and adverts, but sometimes it is hard to know exactly how we can help and what we could be doing to better help our environment.

 

Between the 15th and 23rd of June 2013, Bristol plays host to 'Big Green Week'. A free, two weekend event dedicated to thinking and being more green.

Big Green Week will display a verity of events including comedy, talks, music, films, food & markets, art, fashion and many more.

The festival is free for most events and is family friendly.
