The festival is set to take place between June 15 and 16 and will give visitors a chance to dive deep into understanding how to protect nature as well as how to tackle clime change.

A spokesperson for the town council said: “Raising awareness on how we can all help to protect our environment is a big focus for the town council, especially with our Climate and Ecological Emergency declarations and being an Earth Protector Town.

“The ‘Bigger Greener Weekender’ is a chance for us to highlight the many local organisations who are championing our local environment and give people the opportunity to ask questions and find out more.”
