Join Halton Libraries for Let’s Go Green Festival throughout June and July, a celebration of the outdoors and our planet using art, stories, talks and performance!

It’s all part of the Celebrate Halton – Borough of Culture 2021 celebrations. #CelebrateHalton

Experience the outdoors and learn about going green. Throughout this festival there will be lots of fun and informative events and workshops for you to get involved in.

Artist Rebecca Atherton will be exploring climate change and its effects on the animal kingdom through a series of Love Our Planet workshops where participants will design and create amazing headdresses, depicting great mythological animal god spirits, each accompanied with an environmental pledge.

The younger generation will have the opportunity to learn about climate change, the history of protest art and then to create their very own peaceful protest placard in our Save Our Planet workshops lead by artist Colette Whittington, who has worked with Tate London and Liverpool and the People’s History Museum.

Booster Cushion Theatre will be taking you on an ecological adventure across continents and Old Town Bloomers will be exploring the great outdoors . Norton Priory’s bee keeper will host a special workshop and Catalyst Science Discovery Centre will explore biodiversity.

Plus there will be a series of outdoor story walks, a talk from a nature author and a gardener’s question time, not to mention ‘green’ inspired craft workshops and an online ’10 Days of Green’ challenge and lots more!
