The Northern Summer Of Love, Lancashire Environmental Festival

#WeAreAllLancashire  #LoveLancashire #LoveNature #FrackStopsHere

Friday 19th June – Friday 26th June 2015

The Lancashire Environment is the focus of a week long series of events beginning with Natures’ Way Summer Solstice Camp on The Fylde and the official re-opening of the Marsh Mill Windmill, Thornton, a celebration of Lancashires’ original form of renewable energy

Organisations such as Frack Free Lancashire, Green Party, Friends of the Earth, 38 Degrees, Frack Off, Greenpeace, Reclaim the Power, This Changes Everything, Northern Greenhouse and Fylde Future are all hosting events, featuring speeches from prominent environmental figures, celebrities, politicians and union leaders

Energy is the big topic of the moment with the direction of Lancashires’ energy future becoming an international issue

There is something for everyone happening in Lancashire this week – festivals, make your voice heard, protests, discussions, conferences, street theatre, home-made Lancashire cooking, hiking, birdwatching – it’s what Lancashire is all about

If common sense prevails and Lancashire County Council reject the fracking applications, then the party is guaranteed to be even BIGGER

Friday 19th June – Sunday 21st June
