Abingdon Eco Fair

Saturday May 13th 2023  9am - 3pm

An opportunity to answer so many questions you have about the climate and nature crisis, and find viable ways of responding as an individual.

Changing up your lifestyle in small ways can add up to a big difference over  time. Imagine the impact of being part of an army of people all making those important changes!


There are three events happening in the Town Centre on May 13th: here's what you can do...

  • attend one of the short talks in the Guildhall (Roysse Room)
  • stroll around the Eco Fair Market on the Market Place and meet some exhibitors
  • join in the activities put on by the One Planet group, taking place under the museum arches and downstairs in the basement. 
  • Includes bike checks and sewing repair cafe

We're shouting out a big "thank you" to Missing Bean in Stert Street for supporting our stallholders with discounted coffees.


Taking place in the Roysse Room at the Guildhall 
All of our talks are free.

To walk from the Market Place to the talk venue please exit the Market Place between R&R cafe and Gatwards Jewellers, cross over the road using the crossing point and then turn right and walk past the church, past the archway until you reach the grassed area. Turn left into here and find the Roysse Room as soon as you enter through the door ahead of you.

Scroll down for full details of each talk. Booking not necessary. Please arrive ten minutes before the start time to ensure a place.
