Festival for the Future: Sustainability Festival

16 July @ 10.30am - 5.00pm

Free. Drop in.
Stretton is one of the best places to see the impact of sustainable water-powered solutions. Join us for a jam-packed day of sustainability and climate action!
Discover stories around the Mill with eco-storyteller, Creeping Toad; enjoy storytelling and immersive performances themed around the Cheshire landscape, and make your own puppets from materials found in the woods. Storytelling sessions will be interspersed with hands-on crafting workshops and interactive puppetry performances, running throughout the day on a drop-in basis.
Hunt for knitted creatures in our Woollen Woods, learn how to care for wildlife in back gardens of any size, and make your own birdseed to take home. We recommend bringing a picnic for maximum enjoyment!
All activities are free and drop-in, no booking required. Museum admission is free for the day. The events will be taking place outdoors, so be sure to bring clothes for all weathers and outdoor shoes.
Inspired by #PlasticFreeJuly, Festival for the Future is a month-long, community-driven celebration of sustainability and climate initiatives spanning all four museum sites. Co-curated by community members, local organisations and sustainability groups, it combines education around sustainability and climate issues with creative responses, and gives local people a platform for sharing their work.
