On the eve of our registration deadline we now have 107 groups supporting Sustainable St Albans Week 21-28 Nov.
You’ve never seen a week like this in St Albans District before!
The district will be full of events about environmental sustainability day and night throughout the week Sat 21st – Sat 28th November.
The 100th supporter was St Albans Sub Aqua Club with a fantastic event looking at the impact of food choices on our oceans: they will be showing a film – The End of the Line – on Sat 21 November – It follows an investigative reporter as he confronts politicians and celebrity retauranteurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans!
Packed with innovative things to do, the week offers the opportunity to discover an ancient Iron Age fort in Redbourn – organised by Aubrey Park Hotel in conjunction with Redbourn Museum; you can visit an art exhibition on the theme of World Toilet Day at the Nude Tin Can Gallery on Hatfield Road, or climb the ancient steps in the Clock Tower in the High Street.
Children can attend a special story-telling and craft event at the Story-Tent at Trestle Theatre, take part in one of several nature walks along the River Ver or swap books at the children’s book swap at the Oxfam Book shop!
Grown-ups can see a brand new film about climate change ‘This Changes Everything’ at the Maltings Art Theatre and families can take part in CDA’s community fruit tree pruning event at the Community Garden on Hixberry Lane.
Groups that register by the deadline will have their events published in Sustainable St Albans Programme of Events. Events are still being registered and we will soon have the full programme posted on the website. For groups that register late, we will still put the details up on the website and publicise them where we can!
