Bourne Hall to run Festival of Arts and Sustainability


Tuesday, 7 May, 2024

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council are pleased to announce Bourne Hall’s Festival of Arts and Sustainability will be taking place on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 May, 10am-4pm.

The free event promises fun for all the family, with a wide variety of environmentally-friendly and nature-based activities, entertainment, eco-friendly shopping and live music.

Creative Minds will be running art workshops to turn old plastic bottles into bird feeders and painting CDs for an art installation along the pond railings. Anyone willing to donate old plastic bottle and CDs for the workshop, should do so at Bourne Hall reception in the week before the festival.

The festival will also see the launch of the Seed Hunters trail, an interactive walk to teach about the plants and trees at Bourne Hall. The trail will guide visitors through the park, hunting for clues and marking off points of interest on the map provided.

Other activities include a sustainable craft market with practical demonstrations. The Flying Saucer Café will be serving a range of delicious food and drink.

Cllr Clive Woodbridge, Chair of the council’s Community and Wellbeing Committee, said, “I’m very pleased to see the popular festival at Bourne Hall has returned for another year. It’s a wonderful way to bring the whole community together with creative and informative activities.

“This year’s theme is arts and sustainability, and I think the festival is a brilliant way to raise awareness of important environmental issues in a fun, family-friendly way. We look forward to seeing lots of members of our community at the event."
