The Chamberlain Highbury Trust invite you to a free, interactive, accessible community festival on the Highbury Estate in Moseley’s Highbury Park On Sunday 13th June 2021.
The Chamberlain Highbury Trust has undertaken the first phase of a gardens restoration project at Highbury bringing back historic features, connecting the Grade *II listed mansion to the park and making the path network and driveway more accessible to more people. We are hosting this festival to share our pledge to making Highbury sustainable, our commitment to protecting its wildlife and plant species and our promise to our community to keep providing quality accessible events and opportunities.
Our Sustainability Festival will be a creative and interactive festival where visitors will spend time outside experiencing the changes made to the estate. Along the way they will encounter activities, displays, art works and performances. Sustainability is really important to us and not just for the mansion and park. We want to support our community to find inspiration to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We know there are already amazing things happening locally and we want to give people opportunity to celebrate those. There will be space for visitors to share their ideas and goals to become more sustainable as well as ask questions and be inquisitive about small changes that can make a big difference.
We all know that getting hands on and seeing change and sharing ideas has a much bigger impact that being told what to do. This event is about sharing, being active, becoming accountable, seeing how easy and fun changes can be. It’s about feeling part of a community of change. We will be joined by Highbury’s partners, artists, local businesses, social enterprises, community organisations and education providers who all believe in sustainability.
