North Norfolk District Council’s Greenbuild Festival is coming to Fakenham

Saturday 10th September


In 2022, Greenbuild will be hosted as a hybrid event, featuring virtual talks during the week, and an in-person event held in Fakenham town centre, with support from Fakenham Town Council.

Alongside the physical and virtual events, there will also be satellite events, including wildlife tours and a guided coastal walk.

Greenbuild is the Council’s long-running annual environmental event which addresses ways in which residents, communities and local businesses can work together to build a more sustainable future for North Norfolk through the exploration of issues surrounding the climate change and biodiversity agenda.

The Greenbuild vision:  A greener, brighter, cleaner, future for North Norfolk where together our communities, businesses and natural ecosystems can thrive.

The Festival:  Greenbuild Festival Day in Fakenham will provide opportunities to explore a wide range of climate change and environmental issues, focussing on these key themes:
