Go! Organic festival launch seals London’s reputation as organic event hub

As the international natural and organic trade community prepares to gather in London next weekend (22-23 April), comes more news about this summer’s big organic consumer event in the city.

The website for the English capital’s big new summer event, the GO! Organic Festival, has now gone live, including full details of an impressive line-up, combining great live music acts, celebrities, talks, organic kitchen demos, kids’ stuff, features and over 100 exhibitors to celebrate all things organic, in a vibrant festival setting.

With headline sponsors confirmed and big-name brands lining up to book stands, the new GO! Organic Festival, taking place in London’s Battersea Park over 8-9 September, is shaping up to be one of the most important new initiatives seen for the UK’s growing organic and sustainable living sector, according to organisers Diversified Communications (Publisher of Natural Products Global and organizer of Natural & Organic Products Europe).

“We have had a fantastic response to this ambitious initiative, with support from across the organic sector,” says Amanda Thackray, sales manager for the event.  “It’s going to be an amazing event, with a brilliant, eclectic line-up, including top bands such as The Hoosiers and The Magic Numbers on the main stage, television personalities such as Jonathan Dimbleby, Simon King, Janey Lee Grace and children’s entertainer, Mr Bloom; whilst some of the country’s most exciting chefs can be seen in the Organic Kitchen.  Add to that some amazing feature areas, Meet The Farmer, circus acts, a free fun fair, a children’s farm, hands-on workshops, an Organic Beer Festival, bug hunts and so much more, and you can begin to see that we have the makings of something quite special.”

Sponsors confirmed include: Abel & Cole, Clearspring, Crazy Jack, Tarrantella, Pukka, Helen Browning’s Organic, Wyld Wood Organic and G’s Fresh, with more to be announced over the coming weeks.  The event forms part of the Organic September celebrations and has the support of the Soil Association and the Organic Trade Board.

Discounted advance tickets can be purchased via the website, with tickets for adults at £29, children £15 and a family of four at £69.  For full details, please visit http://www.goorganicfestival.co.uk
