Bude Climate Partnership is nothing without its local community and this festival is our way of saying a big thank you to you all.

Please come celebrate Bude with us! 

The Bright Futures Festival is our free family event being held at The Castle and The Parkhouse Centre, Bude on Saturday July 2nd, 11am-5pm.

Throughout the day there's going to be live music from local performers including James Dixon and Ezmay Grace, dance performances, food stalls and a huge variety of different activities for all the family. Choose from upcycled fashion shows, art trails, storytelling and magic shows, electric bike demonstrations and inspirational speakers. Browse around our local craft and produce stalls. Treat yourself to lunch from one of the tasty food stands and don't forget to grab something to drink - the bar is being run by local gin-maker Tom Read.

There's also the chance to learn about what Bude Climate Partnership has been working on. Find out about the projects that will help future-proof our town, coast and countryside and discover how our partners have been involved.

Keep checking back as we'll be updating these pages regularly with timetables and more details.
