Zero Carbon Concert Glastonbury
A family friendly, grass-roots event, creating empowering news reports of positive action and personal initiative. There are many Concerts going on all over the world on the same weekend, before the UN climate summit in Mexico on Monday 29th November. Glastonbury’s Zero Carbon Concert is on Sunday 28th November on Tor Leisure Sports Field in Glastonbury, 10am until 8pm.
Free entry to this educational, “Big Society”, community event. There is a Victorian horse-drawn solar stage, skill sharing workshops, wholesome hot food and drinks, Transition Tin-Village structures, swap shop, local low-impact stalls, community information, and a campfire.
There is an invitation for local young people to stand up for their Five minutes of Fame at this Fossil-Fuel-Free Festival of Fun! Open to all children; teens and below. It is free to join in, in this non-competitive, inclusive environment. Kids Cabaret on the Solar Stage is from 10am until 12am. Live music also includes the Avalon Free State Choir, a Classical String Quartet; local young musician Declan Timberwolf Millar; Dave Sanger & Sam on the fiddle; Nathan & Harmony of of Glastonbury’s Fury Folk-night fame; Josie Nightingale; Tim Hall & The Archetypes and The Hedgerow Crawlers.
Please do try to walk and cycle to the event, or at least car-share. Profits are going to Glastonbury Conservation Society who will endeavour to offset any fossil-fuels used with their continued work tree planting in town and 10 miles around (43,653 trees in 39 years) and restoration of ancient hedgerows.
There is also an opportunity to get involved with crew work parties, skill sharing, make n’ do, music and camping on the Friday and Saturday. Contact Samantha Jane to volunteer your services, skills & stuff (crew camp location one mile from venue, strictly no dogs).
