Over 30 films will be shown during the 3 Day Festival on different Eco themes with an evening screening of a major feature film. Each evening performance is sponsored by a local organisation, namely The Hub, North Kesteven District Council and Sleaford Climate Action Network.

In the afternoons, (from 14.00 to approx 16.30), you can enjoy a selection of short eco films from around the world. These will be walk-in performances with no booking required.

The evening feature film performances will start at 19.00, (doors open at 18.30). The sponsor will introduce the film and after the screening we will have a short discussion/Q &A. Admission to the evening show is free, but booking is required on Eventbrite, and donations will be accepted to help cover costs.

Refreshments will be available during the afternoon and a bar will be open in the evening.

Textile artist Allan Brown spends seven years making a dress by hand, just from the fibre of locally foraged stinging nettles.
