The 9th annual Environmental Rock festival will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd May 2011 at The Hobbit in Bevois Valley!
The FREE daytime event, which has gone from strength to strength since it’s inception in 2003, attracts hundreds of visitors with its unique mix of music, environmental awareness, workshops and activities and ethical products for sale. 2011 promises to be the biggest and best event yet.
The festival coincides with the beginning of Southampton University Students’ Union Environmental and Ethical week, but welcomes everyone, whether young or old.
Visitors can enjoy delicious organic food available courtesy of Chef Bernie, whilst speaking to a range of organisations including Transition Southampton, New Forest National Park, Southampton Natural History Society and Greenpeace, whilst companies such as Wikaniko and October Books will sell a range of ethical products.
All stallholders share the organisers’ commitment to helping preserve and improve our environment for future generations, and many of them have attended Environmental Rock for several years, demonstrating their commitment to both the event and the wider cause.
The musical background for the event will be provided by a host of talented local acts performing on separate indoor and outdoor stages during the day. In addition, after last years’ successful launch, an evening gig will also take place showcasing yet more quality bands, costing only £2 after 7.30pm. More details about all the bands will be announced very soon.
Finally, no May Bank Holiday event would be complete without Morris Dancers, so by popular demand, we are pleased to announce that Samhaim Morris will return to Environmental Rock to perform!
More information about all the activities, bands, stallholders and delicious food will be available on our new website at www.environmental-rock.org.uk. We can also be found on Twitter (@envirorock) and Facebook, or you can email us at: email@example.com.
Environmental Rock is organised by a diverse committee comprising a mixture of local residents and students, demonstrating how well the two groups can work together to organise such a successful and lasting event.
