Local Gatherings

Local events, often called a Green Gathering or a Green Fair/Fayre, were organised across the country from 1983 onwards. Sometimes totally independently, often with the assistance of The Green Roadshow, these were usually one day events. 

This is a list of the events that were advertised in the Green Collective Mailings - we have very little information on any of them. If you have memories of a particular event, or any material like flyers, posters, tickets, local paper reports, or photos which we could copy please do get in touch.
