Belper Goes Green is Transition Belper’s Community, Eco and Arts Festival – a celebration of local living, which aims to share ways of reducing our impact on the planet, whilst connecting the local community in a relaxed, safe and uplifting way.

Following two years of Covid interruption, we are delighted to bring back the three-day, family-friendly Belper Goes Green Eco Festival! With a newfound sense of hope and optimism, it will showcase everything the local community has to offer in an environmentally conscious way. There will be music, talks and workshops to enjoy, all at a new venue. Let’s celebrate together!
