This Saturday, 1 December, is the Green Fair!!
This annual treat is held in Oxford Town Hall, St Aldates, OX1 1BX from 10:30am - 4:30pm.
This is the 38 year the Fair has been running! Woop! It is the best place to start the winter festivities, enjoy live music, chat to interesting people, do some ethical shopping and east extremely yummy homemade vegan and vegetarian food from the pop-up Cafe!
The doors open at 10.30am, with the formal opening ceremony at 11am.
Sheriff Craig Simmons will declare the official opening. We are then delighted to welcome Sid Phelps, local Green Councillor in the Forest of Dean, who will be talking about his work of re-wilding, flood alleviation, and the successful reintroduction of beavers into the Greathough Brook in the Forest of Dean. Sid will speak for about 5 minutes summarising these projects: afterwards people will be invited to join him in the Old Library at 11.30am when he will describe the project in more detail and show a short video.
Scheduled music performances will happen on the main landing at the top of the stairs: check out the West Papuan singers at 11.15am and the Seagreen Singers at 2pm. Watch out for an additional musical surprise!
In the three rooms of the Fair there will be a huge mixture of stalls from local craftworkers to fairly-traded imports from around the world, from local wildlife sites to national and indeed international biodiversity charities, and campaign groups covering everything from local cycling routes to national infrastructure. Something for everyone!
If you haven’t been before – do come along! The Fair occupies the three large rooms of Oxford Town Hall, and is full of stalls containing green and ethical gifts, second hand books, delights and treats, local groups, green campaigners and a fantastic veggie and vegan café.
