Join us for this weekend to find out how we can influence Climate Change

Friday 14th June -  Monday 17th June 2024

Space is available on this event for those wishing to camp or attend as day visitors

The Essex Green Weekend is a small family friendly festival which welcomes everyone who is interested or concerned about "green" matters. We have artists and activists, permaculturists and scholars. We also have an eclectic range of music acts. This will be the third year of holding the Essex Green Weekend and we hope to make it the best yet! Details of the programme will be available in the shortly. 

This event is run in partnership with Trustlinks Charity  The Essex Green Weekend engages communities, faith groups and anyone interested in climate change action. Taking place at Othona Bradwell, on the shores of the Blackwater Estuary between 14th June to 17th June 2024, the Essex Green Weekend is an amazing opportunity to gain a better understanding of how to:

  • Take Climate Action
  • Celebrate action taken
  • Connect with likeminded people and organisations through networking and a range of activities, workshops and entertainment
