A GREEN festival will take place in Stafford next month to highlight all things environmental.

Artists, performers, poets and environmentalists will stage the festival at the historic St Chad's Church in the town centre.

It will also take place in Number 15 Café because of the large number of artworks submitted.

Residents of Stafford and surrounding areas are invited to submit artworks for the exhibition. Exhibits of art or poetry should be entered by February 14 at the latest to Marie Proctor (Transition Town Stafford; 01785 254936) and prizes will be awarded.

Mervyn Price of Konnektiv Drama 07969048659 is compiling a list of performers to bring music and drama to the opening event. Performances range from choirs and folk music, through to storytelling, and some post-apocalyptic theatre.

Other community partners in this grass-roots endeavour include the Eco-Schools Network, Sustainability Matters, Stafford Radio, The Three Fairies and St Chad's , and the event is supported by Stafford Borough Council and Stafford and District Arts.

The festival exhibition will be opened by the Mayor of Stafford on Saturday, February, 15, at 11am, to be followed by a day of music, dance and drama.
