Press Release

The Greenpeace Fair is on! It will be taking place in a glorious new location at Henham park on Sunday 4th September from 11am to 11pm.

After our successful celebration gig last year the Greenpeace Fair, now in its 22nd year, is back in full swing.

The site, in Henham Park between Halesworth and Southwold, is an exciting space. Wide skies surrounded by mature trees and beautiful views of the lake, easily accessible from the A145 and the A12.


The Fair will feature three music stages: the big top with a range of amplified music, the acoustic stage, and our lively human dynamo stage where the sound system is powered by members of the audience riding an exercise bike! The music encompasses jazz, folk, blues, reggae, samba and much, much more. Watch this space for the full line-up.

As always, the Fair is organised entirely by local Greenpeace volunteers, as well as the local Green Party supporters who run the Cafe Green serving delicious local organic food and a friendly bar serving local organic beers and wine .

Why not come and help us make another magical day? We always need more volunteers who are made very welcome. It is a rewarding and memorable experience.


The many exciting stalls are back, plus great kids’ activities and entertainment including the Woodcraft Folk and the Foolhardy Folk.

Some new things include Swingboats, ‘History of the Albion Fairs’ tent, the Transition towns tea tent, a healing area and more campaign stalls.

Admission is £10 per adult, £8 concessions, £5 children under 12, under 5s free. Please car share or come by bike, there’s no extra charge for parking this year.
