Monday 8th July – Sunday 14th July.
10am-4pm (Last entry at 4pm, lavender to be cleared by 4.30pm)
Gate entrance fee is £6 per person with under 16s remaining free. (Please bring cash as car payments do not work on the entrance)

Come and enjoy our fragrant, buzz of Lordington lavender set in the heart of the South Downs. Every year we open our gates to the public to come and enjoy a walk amongst the lavender rows, a cup of tea and piece of cake and an oppurtunity to meet with friends and family relaxing together.

Start your visit with our tractor ride from the car park to the farm yard to which the lavender is just a short walk away – a favourite for the children!

Once again, our local charity teams will be providing delicious tea and cakes, including homemade lavender delights, raising funds for their chosen charities.

Our very own lavender products will be available to purchase. Take a little memory home with you! Cards can be taken for payment at the product stall.

We are committed to keeping the field a rural, non-commercial oasis of bees, butterflies and other wildlife for everyone to enjoy. With this in mind, we have made every effort to keep it open to everyone.

We welcome dogs on leads.

Please note that there is a steep and uneven slope to and in the lavender field. Please be aware that this may be unsuitable for some disabled persons and wheelchairs.

Commercial photo shoots and use of drones are not permitted during open week. For use of the field for a commercial shoot please email us at info@lordingtonlavender.co.uk

PEOPLE | PLANET | PURPOSE

***THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PLEDGED TO OUR CROWDFUNDER! WE RAISED £3100!***

The CleverGreen Festival team are on a mission to bring an eco-friendly, ethically sound, festival to Brighton.

We aim to be as close to zero waste as we can get and we want you to be part of the fun!

===================================================

We’re passionate about educating and inspiring people to make that leap, out of all of the confusion and into living a more sustainable lifestyle but we don’t want to do that by lecturing you and telling you what you’re doing wrong! We want to bring you the biggest festival of it’s kind to our local community so you can find out for yourself how to live a CleverGreen life.

===================================================

CLEVERGREEN FESTIVAL, SATURDAY 20TH JULY 2019. THE LEVEL BRIGHTON. ALL DAY FREE EVENT!

===================================================

If you are a stall holder, media or sponsor you can take a look at our festival pack by visiting the festival page on our website www.clevergreengroup.com. Stall holders email enquiries to jo@clevergreengroup.com.

Charities and low income traders can enquire about concessions via email to jo@clevergreengroup.com

====================================================

We are committed to putting as much revenue as we can raised from the event, back into the local community, working with local businesses and stallholders, to support the Brighton economy.

====================================================

WHY DO FESTIVALS NEED TO CHANGE?

*”Over three million people attend UK festivals each year and between them generate a staggering 23,500 tonnes of waste, equating to 2.8kg of waste per person, per day. Research suggests that of that amount only 32% is recycled with the other 68 per cent heading for landfill sites.

Add to that the UK’s commitment to be plastic free by 2042 and there is mounting pressure for festivals to find sustainable solutions to waste and recycling*

*environmentjournelonline

====================================================

HOW WILL WE COMMIT TO OUR VALUES?

As well as following CleverGreen Group’s own code of practice (which can be found on our website) we will also be adhering to the guidelines stated by A Greener Festival, who advise the following:

– Allowing use of only biodegradable disposables or re-usable cups and plates on stalls.
– Providing separate bins for recycling.
– Utilising volunteers and potential sponsorship for the clean-up and sorting efforts.
– Separating waste for recycling
– Involving the crowd by supplying recycling bin bags and either a returnable rubbish tax or reward incentives.
– Providing standard, recycling and biodegradable bin bags for traders.
– Create sculptures using waste generated on site (e.g. plastic bottles)

====================================================
