The London Green Fair

The London Green Fair celebrated its 20th Anniversary at Regent's Park this weekend and I popped along (with my camera, of course!) to enjoy a sunny Saturday at the event.

A growing awareness of environmental issues within the capital has seen this once small Fair develop into a popular annual event, which attracts tens of thousands of attendees each year. The London Green Fair was launched in 1992 and was held in the railways arches at Kings Cross. However, as the popularity of this free event has developed, its location was changed to the more suitably green and leafy surroundings of Regent's Park. 

The London Green Fair has a varied and interesting programme. There was plenty of live music, market stalls, and talks and debates on offer. Plus there were glitter tattoos and free trees! This was a vibrant event which celebrated the achievements being made in the battle for a greener London.
