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.
** A MESSAGE ABOUT THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL AND COVID 19 **
It is with sadness that the Belper Goes Green organising committee have made the decision to cancel the 2020 festival. This is due to the ever developing Covid-19 pandemic. It is important that we prioritise the health and safety of all involved and as we are unable to do this the decision was made to cancel.
Belper Goes Green aims to:
- Create a fun, safe and uplifting environment in which our community can come together
- Promote ways we can reduce our impact on the planet by sharing experiences and knowledge
- Celebrate life in Belper and the surrounding DE56 postcode area
- Address global environmental issues on a local scale
- Promote a thriving local economy, based on green principles
- Connect individuals, families and businesses across the community
- Promote connection with the natural world
- Showcase local artists, musicians, writers and poets
- Give a platform to local campaign groups, charities and organisations who share similar values to us
What we are doing as a festival to reduce our impact on the planet:

- Single-use plastic food and drinks containers, plastic cutlery and polystyrene are banned from the site
- We aim for all of our stages to be solar-powered
- No petrol or diesel generators are allowed
- We minimise landfill waste by providing recycling bins across the site
