June 2020 update

Sadly, although we have been planning our Eco Festival since Nov 2019, we have decided that because of the continuing uncertainties surrounding Covid-19, it would be inappropriate to hold the physical event this year. We will advise a new date for 2021 as soon as possible.

In the meantime we are continuing with our Young Arts Competition and confirm that the deadline is extended to 10th July (this year) with the winners announced on the 25th July.

We also confirm that it is our intention to run a series of smaller physical and/or online events in the run up to the new 2021 Festival. These are undoubtedly unchartered waters for all of us, however our team of Volunteers have been nothing short of inspirational and steadfast in their ongoing commitment to this event.

We look forward with hope in our hearts to next year and who knows what other projects may emerge.

Eco Festival 2021

A free community event in Colchester. Be entertained, inspired, learn, network. Discover how you can create positive social environmental change by consuming products and services differently.

New date to be announced shortly for 2021
Lower Castle Park, Colchester

Young Arts Competition

Our young citizens (students and pupils) are the future. With the current climate emergency we want to ensure their voices, ideas, solutions and concerns are fully heard and discussed. To facilitate this dialogue we are running a poetry, prose, art, music and nursery rhyme competition.

Eco Festival 2021

A free community event, aimed at inspiring and educating visitors to create positive social change, everyday changes about how we consume products and services. By learning, and doing things differently, together we can all make a big difference. It is our aspiration that all future events will be sustainable, carbon neutral/negative and be ecologically sound.
