The Festival is proud to be comitted to being a Greener Festival and we would like to thank all of the volunteers and workers who helped to keep the Festival site clean and tidy during the weekend. We were joined by Cambridge Friends of the Earth, Recycle for Cambridge and Amey Cespa, they all helped to promote recycling and planet positivity during the Festival. The on site Traders also kindly donated their left over food of bread, fruit and vegetables which was then collected and distributed to Cambridge Community Lunches.
