Saturday 6th June 2015
2015 is Glastonbury Abbey’s ‘Year of the Environment’ and the Sustainability Fair will be a chance for us to showcase our 36 acres of beautiful grounds to the community.
We hope to show individuals, families and organisations some of the ways in which they can contribute to a more sustainable way of life. The Fair will take place on Saturday 6th June 2015 and will feature producers of locally, sustainably and ethically produced food, drinks, crafts and trades.
There will be regular talks and demonstrations throughout the day in one of our marquees, along with information stands from local and national organisations and some environmentally themed fun activities for children. All of this will take place in the heart of the beautiful abbey grounds, which will be open free of charge to the public for the day.
This will lead into our annual opening evening to celebrate the beginning of our longer summer opening hours.
11.00am-5.00pm Free Entry from 12.00pm
