The festival will be plenty of fun for the whole family with kids activities, nature crafts, live entertainment and a range of stallholders covering different topics of sustainability.

The Un-junk upcycle/recycle art competition aims to get people thinking about resources and sustainability while also creating some awesome pieces of art. Artworks will be displayed, judged and prizes awarded at the Sustainable Living Festival.
