Community Focus

One of the key aims of our events is to provide a platform for local ethical and sustainable businesses and community groups to connect with the people in their area. As part of our initiative to make our events more community focused we offer a number of free pitches at each event to those who meet our eligibility criteria. All we require in return is for you to promote the event you'll be attending through your own channels (some simple suggestions are shown below).
