Yes they are flags. Yes they are made out of recycled tents and recycled wood. And yes, people want them! Our wonderful Greener Festival Awards have been handed out in London to some of our deserving winners!
Winners of the prestigious Greener Festival Award picked up their winners ‘flags’ at the UK Festival Awards on Monday night at London’s Roundhouse venue. Festivals picking up their award included Shambala, The Croissant Neuf Summer Party, Rock The Green (USA), Milton Keynes Fringe, T-in-the-Park, Reading, Leeds, Latitude and the Radio 1 Hackney Weekender and we were so proud to see all of them and some of the winners are pictured with Helen and Claire from A Greener Festival and Paul Twomey from sponsors Robertson Taylor Insurance Brokers who sponsor the Awards.
