Event Venue

The Furlong 19-20 The Furlong, Ringwood BH24 1AT

The Furlong shopping centre is proud to host and support this amazing event on Saturday 16th May from 10:30am to 4:30pm which will be brought to life with music and a fashion show, your chance to be amazed by how you can breathe new life into old clothes and just what can be created from old sheets and duvet covers.
The Ringwood Eco Fair is a great opportunity to buy upcycled, sustainable goods and solar gadgets, learn how to make seed bombs and buy native plants and trees. There will be a range of local groups and businesses with planet friendly workshops, stalls and gifts.
Fun for all the family. Bring your children along to do some bark rubbing, test their (and your) knowledge of trees, create a bug hotel, paint their own bird box and play the “which waste goes where” game. You can even buy your own signed copy of “Planet Earth Needs Our Help”, the children’s book written by local author Marylyn Cropley.
A delight for nature lovers, there will be opportunities to find out more about the work of the Hampshire and IOW Wildlife Trust and the Marine Conservation Agency, to get involved in a community grow your own scheme and local tree and wildflower planting.
Ever wondered what a passive house is and what a co-housing scheme is? Want to know what you can do to reduce energy use at home or at work? Want to help reduce the use of single-use plastics? Come along to find out more!
Ringwood Meeting House and History Centre are delighted to be hosting a series of talks enabling you to learn more about climate change science, electric cars and conservation taking place from 1pm onwards, with the full line up of speakers to be announced soon.
We live in such a beautiful area, this is a great chance to celebrate the beauty and see what a positive difference we can all make to the world around us.
This event is organised by Ringwood Actions for Climate Emergency, supported by Transition Ringwood, and The Ringwood Meeting House and History Centre and donations will support local projects in the Ringwood Area.
