Greenbuild, the region’s leading free, family-friendly, green lifestyle event, and hub for all things sustainable, energy efficient and local, is back for the 11th year running.

This year’s Greenbuild event, sponsored by Crayford and Abbs and Floodsense, promises to be one of the biggest ever, as organisers North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) confirmed that more than 80 exhibitors, including a brand new craft market, farmers’ market stalls, food and drink stalls and children’s entertainers, have so far signed up to attend the event in the grounds of Felbrigg Hall, near Cromer, over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, 5 and 6 September.

Greenbuild is a fantastic event for those who want to find out how to lead a greener lifestyle. There will be exhibitors of green technologies like solar panels and electric cars and bikes, and experts in local and traditional products such as timber framing, traditional carpentry and heritage plastering.

Talks and advice from exhibitors and volunteers will cover everything from growing your own food, advice on heat pumps and biomass boilers to retro-fitting houses for energy and carbon savings.
NNDC’s Planning, Environmental Protection, Waste and Recycling, Civil Contingencies, Environmental Services, Economic Growth and Sports Clubs and Hubs teams will also be ready to chat with visitors and answer questions.
Greenbuild offers something for the whole family. There will be plenty going on to keep children entertained, including theatre shows, face painting, a free children’s quiz with fantastic prizes and a chance to make wildlife homes with NNDC’s Countryside team. There will also be plenty of food stalls to visit, all offering excellent local food and fresh, delicious homemade and organic produce.

Tom FitzPatrick, Leader of North Norfolk District Council, said: “Greenbuild has become a key event in the North Norfolk diary and I’m delighted that the National Trust will again play host to this fantastic free event in the beautiful grounds of Felbrigg Hall.

“Come along and learn how you can become more environmentally friendly and save money on your energy bills by just making a few simple changes to your lifestyle. You can also enjoy unique access to council services, learn about all things green and sustainable while enjoying a fun day out with plenty of great food, entertainment, and hopefully, sunshine!”

Entrance and parking at Greenbuild is FREE, and visitors will be able to take home three bags of compost for just £1. Vouchers for the compost will be available to buy at stand E1.
