Get involved and get ready for Green Hustle

Green Hustle Festival returns on Saturday 1 June, 10:00 am - 6:00pm


Building on the success of last year’s festival attended by 10,000 people, Green Hustle will bring an inspiring programme right into the heart of the city featuring collaborations with local artists, organisations and community groups, uniting behind the theme ‘Common Ground’.

The festival is a great way to find out more about green issues and take away ideas for sustainable living from making ethical purchases and tips for growing in pots and plots of all sizes to steps individuals can  take to effect change in their communities. A survey following last year’s festival found 75 percent of respondents made a positive behaviour change.

Green Hustle is also supporting the Nottingham City Council ambition to be carbon neutral by 2028 and the team from CN28 will be present at the festival to share what they're doing, to give everyone the chance to be involved and have their say.


What's on?

Green Hustle takes place from 10am to 6pm, and will feature:

  • A main stage hosted by Cultural Vibrations Unity Through Music
  • A community café from Himmah’s Shalom Salaam Kitchen, providing pay what you feel meals
  • Creative workshops from Dizzy Ink, Right for Flies 
  • Street Entertainment from Capoeira Nottingham, Circus Hub and Laura Decorum
  • Pop-up accessible garden showcasing University of Nottingham research
  • A market featuring independent sustainable retailers, including jewellery, skin care, zero waste, mushrooms, vegan treats and clothing
  • Activity and Information stalls from Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, Keeping It Wild, the Environment Agency, Groundwork Greater Nottingham, Carbon Neutral Nottingham 2028, Bikeworks and more
  • A talks tent featuring talks about gardening, de-paving the city, zero waste and more
