Do you want to make your lifestyle more green?

sustainable living fair Brighton If so, the upcoming Sustainable Living Fair here in Brighton is one for your diary. A fun and educational afternoon event, the fair will be held on Saturday 17th September 2016 from 2-5pm, at the Brighthelm Centre. It’s organised by Discerning Events, a local events company. We’ll have a stall at the fair and will also be giving a talk.

The fair will be a perfect opportunity to learn about sustainable living in a fun and informal environment, and also find out what green projects are taking place around the city. Here’s an extract from the event’s Facebook page:

“The Sustainable Living Fair is on a mission to educate and inspire! Learn how to upcycle textiles, jewellery and furniture, gain knowledge on growing and cooking your own vegetables. Come and find out about environmental and community projects in your local area that you can take part in and of course, don't forget to bring all your unwanted clothes, shoes, bags and jewellery for SWISHING!!!. Buy sustainable products that have been created and produced in the local area and enjoy refreshments from the venue café.”

We’ll be participating in the fair with an information stall about sustainable architecture and one of our architects, Issi Rousseva, will also be giving a talk about refurbishing your home with natural materials and energy efficiency technologies. Green refurbishments can save you lots of money on heating and electricity, cut your carbon footprint and make your home more comfortable.

Whether, you’re planning a project (refurbishment, remodel, extension, new build…) of if you’re just curious and want to learn more, come and chat to us!

Another great thing about this event is tickets only cost £2. You can sign up on Facebook if you like, but you need to pay on the door.

If you run a local business, or are a speaker or performer, you can also get involved by having a stall, giving a talk, running a workshop, offering a prize for the raffle or giving a performance. Contact the organiser, Jo Dickens of Discerning Events, on 07814736486 or email

See you there!
