Forever Fest

Council is delighted to announce the re-branding of the annual Sustainability Festival, which has run for eight years. Council will see the festival re-emerge as the 'Forever Fest' - 'Sustainable living for now and the future'. 

This will be a nine day, virtual event running from Saturday 22 May through to Sunday 30 May 2021. 

Joining the line-up is Dianne McGrath, who is down to the last 100 candidates world-wide for the 2031 Mars One mission. The 'one' doesn't just mean it's the first mission - it also stands for 'one-way'. Dianne wont be coming back. 

Council will be launching the Facebook Event Page later in February so make sure you stay tuned and mark this event in your diary.
