Bude’s Online Earth Festival 2020

Bude’s Earth Festival 2020 –  An Online Event 

This year Bude’s Earth Festival will be an online event due to government social distancing restrictions.

We will be sharing environmental, lifestyle and wildlife talks, presentations, workshops and musical entertainment for all to enjoy.  As a close-knit green community that has shown so much insight into living sustainably, it is our hope that the whole of Bude can now get together online to celebrate our home planet earth and all we share it with.
