The fifth annual Stroud Festival of Nature takes place in the beautiful grounds of Stratford Park, Stroud. It remains just one of two festival¹s of nature in the UK and attracts visitors in excess of 2,500.
What will SVP being up to during the event?SVP will have a stall at the festival with a range of family activities including paper plant pot making, minibeast home making and DIY activities e.g. decorating eco kites and seed bags.
The festival is a free event where the public can not only learn about what is happening in the countryside around them, but also engage in family friendly nature based activities. Stratford Park provides a wonderful setting for the event. As well as exploring the stalls and taking part in treasure hunts, crafts, art, etc, visitors are encouraged to bring picnics, relax on the lawns beneath the trees and explore the park¹s arboretum, woodland and wilder areas.
This year over forty organisations, groups and individuals are taking part in the festival, the highest number since the festival began.
There will also be a number of organisations and businesses promoting sustainable energy. The Festival of Nature is also hosting the launch of this year¹s Stroud Walking Festival, which then continues for the next three weeks.
