The region's biggest green lifestyle event, organised by North Norfolk District Council (NNDC), is back.

Greenbuild, which was cancelled for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic, will take place online from November 1 to 12.

The virtual festival will look at ways that communities and local businesses can work together to build a greener, brighter and cleaner future for the area. It will feature a range of online workshops, seminars, debates and Q&A sessions.

All events will be free and open to all.

Greenbuild, which normally takes place at Felbrigg Hall, is the council's free-to-enter annual celebration of all things sustainable and it is now on its 15th outing. It is designed to show people how to lead a greener lifestyle in an affordable and practical way.

Councillor Nigel Lloyd, NNDC’s portfolio holder for environmental services, climate change and environment, said: "Greenbuild has been a hugely popular annual lifestyle event for many years and it was a great disappointment to have to cancel the event for the past two years due to Covid.

"However, rather than let another year pass, we are excited to offer Greenbuild as a virtual event that is open to all this year.

"Timed to coincide with one of the most important climate change summits of our age - COP26 - we hope the event will reach out to wide audience in North Norfolk and beyond.
