THE CAMDEN GREEN FAIR
Londons Biggest Green Gathering!
Sunday 4th July 2004 - 12pm - 7pm
St James Gardens, Cardington Street, NW1.
The Camden Green Fair & Bikfest is probably the biggest
green gathering in the London calendar. This year the event,
which attracted over 5,000 people in 2003, will take place
on Sunday 4th July at St James Garden, Cardington Street,
NW1 from 12pm to 7pm. The park is easily accessible from Euston,
Euston Square and Warren Street Underground Stations. Admission
The Fair celebrates everything going on in Camden, in London
and around the world to protect and improve our environment
and quality of life - showing everyone how to have fun with
a low environmental impact. There is a stage with live entertainment,
a children and young peoples area; a health village;
arts and crafts; organic food and drink; exhibits by community
groups and charities; clean vehicles; demonstrations of energy
conservation, renewable energy, recycling and other ways to
reduce environmental impact; and local, national and international
environmental organizations; and much more!
The Fair is made possible thanks to the support of Camden
Council, Camden Greening Forum, CEEN, Groundwork, Camden Cycling
Campaign and many other volunteers. Groundworks Julian
Jacobs says We are very proud that Camden is at the
forefront of promoting green technology and good practice.
This event provides an opportunity for people to have a fun
day out and learn a bit more about how we can protect and
improve our environment. Councillor John Thane, Chair
of the Councils Environment Committee, supports the
event: Camden is leading the field in many environmental
areas, such as green transport and recycling. The Green Fair
is a great opportunity to tell people what we are doing, to
showcase the other brilliant initiatives people are taking
in Camden, and encourage people to take their own action to
improve the environment.

of all ages to the fun of cycling in London. There is a car
free test circuit with all kinds of human-powered vehicles,
bicycle workshops, a childrens obstacle course, guided
rides and opportunities to sign up for cycle training.
