May 11th - June 1st sees the return of the award-winning St Albans Sustainability Festival - with three weeks of events all about the environment and sustainable living.  There are over 160 events across St Albans, Harpenden and the villages. There is something for everyone to enjoy whatever your age or interests - many events are FREE.

There are loads of events to choose from - from guided walks to inspiring films; cookery classes to community food growing; cycle rides to story telling. Many events are family-friendly including craft sessions, plastic-free picnics and fun with nature. Go river-dipping, watch herons or join a community sports day.  Have an evening out at a talk on sustainable fashion, an introduction to green investment or a sustainable pub quiz.

Visit the Market Takeover from 11am-5pm Sunday 19th May when St Albans city centre will be filled with sustainability-themed stalls and activities all aimed at helping residents reduce their carbon footprint. Try an e-bike, eat locally sourced food, shop with local sustainable businesses and enjoy local music.

Thousands of children across the District will also be involved in the Sustainability Festival as schools, Scouting, Guiding and other youth groups will be joining in with their own events.

Programmes are available from key locations across St Albans including Waterstones, the Odyssey, Lush and the Refill Pantry or visit www.sustainablestalbans.org to find the full programme online.
