Plastic Free Chesterfield is holding a festival to encourage you to reduce your single-use plastics. 

Discover stalls from Plastic Free Champion businesses, information stalls on recycling and repair, and recycling craft demonstrations from Junction Arts. Enjoy delicious food & drink and fantastic live performances from Helen Mort (Derbyshire’s Poet Laureate), the Chesterfield Garland Dancers, and more.
