The North Norfolk District Council event 'Greenbuild' takes place this year on 10 and 11 September and will again be held here at Felbrigg Hall, near Cromer. The weekend has become a key event in the North Norfolk diary, promoting sustainability in both buildings and everyday living.
Over the last 10 years Green Build has attracted experts and specialists offering a variety of sustainable products, low carbon innovations and green technologies; this year is no exception. You will find a wide range of information on how to save money and reduce your impact on the environment; whilst at the same timefind plenty of opportunity to support local businesses.
Whilst the event has grown over the years, it remains firmly rooted in the field of green building and construction. Throughout the weekend, there will be a wide range of talks and practical demonstrations; everything from traditional techniques to the latest technologies such as heat pumps and solar panels.
Take a break at the food court, or visit our Farmers Market with with large selection of locally sourced and produced food and drink. We will also have a number of interesting stands in the Craft Market.
If you bring your children along, you won't be disppointed. There will be entertainment for the entire family, including hands-on art workshops, making wildlife homes with NNDC Countryside Team and theatre shows - all on a 'green' theme, of course. Children will also have the opportunity to take part in a 'green' quiz with some excellent prizes - or could even try out some children's yoga!
