Bexley Eco Festival 2022 is almost here!

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

Everyone involved is really looking forward to welcoming you back to our first live, in-person event for a couple of years as we’ve not been able to get-together as we’d normally like to.

It promises to be an amazing day out for all ages and an opportunity to get together as a community not to be missed!

What’s on for kids at Bexley Eco Festival?

The festival will be full of free and fun activities for kids this Saturday.

In conjunction with The Children’s University, most of the stalls joining us will be incorporating kids’ activities. Not only will this keep the whole family entertained and busy, you’ll be learning about ways to help protect and improve your own wellbeing alongside helping the environment. Children’s Learning Passport points can be earned at the same time too which will be a big help in completing the Passports towards graduation.

Activities available include dance and fitness, smoothie bikes, arts and crafts, t-shirt and textiles upcycling (sock puppets, corsages, etc), family nature walking, drumming, recycling, learning about food, planting and enviro-crime.

Find out more about children’s activities and what you can do on the day with who here for a more extensive list.

Book Your Activities at Bexley Eco Festival

In addition to highlighting the environment and what we can all do to help, there are lots of activities and events that you can book on for Saturday. Lots of stalls are running free activities you don’t need to pre-book but to ensure a chance to upcycle your t-shirt whilst learning some creative hacks for upcycling be sure to book in advance via our Activities Page.

Mental and Physical Wellbeing at Bexley

Events of the past couple of years have really taken a toll on many of us which is why we’re keen to show you ways to reduce stress and improve your fitness and awareness of how you’re feeling.

Simon Hart will be discussing the effects of covid on our mental health and how it’s been affected throughout the pandemic and post covid. Listening Ears are also holding a talk on the importance of wellness for our physical and mental health.

If food is more your thing there’ll be several Healthy Cooking workshops throughout the day with Özge Aden showing us how to keep our bodies healthy too. Kitche are also holding a Zero-Waste Brunch at 11 am (no booking required).

For pure relaxation join the Reiki sound bath session at the Nest. The soothing Himalyan sound bowls will leave you feeling energised.

Getting Active

If you fancy getting active on Saturday how about some dance to get the blood pumping and boost your mood?

Tatiana Ellis is holding a dance fitness session for all ages at 11 am in the Atrium Garden. Book yourself and the kids on for a high energy start to your visit!

Greenwich Dance School are holding several sessions throughout the day for you to join in with at the MUGA. Dancing has been proven to boost physical and mental wellbeing in addition to brain function so it’s an all round winner to try out!

Maybe losing yourself in music is more your thing? If so you can join in the rhythmic beat at the drumming workshops sessions to let out your inner drummer. Advance booking highly recommended for this!

Getting out in nature has been proven to be a big help for our mental health, so Dr Phil Askew will be leading a couple of nature walks in the area on the day. Walks will begin from Cygnet Square and go up to the Old Golf Course and along the Thames. It’ll be a great chance to spend time in nature and be more mindful about noticing the wildlife around us.
