This year’s annual community event in Hove’s Stoneham Park will take the form of a Science Festival, designed to promote neighbourhood regeneration and to bring the business community and residents together.
The Science Festival is this year’s annual themed event organised by the Poets Corner Community Society who have teamed up with experienced charitable fundraisers, Hove Lions, and profits from the day will go towards replacing the £65,000 worth of play equipment which was destroyed in the park by vandalism recently.
Local businesses are invited to take part in the Festival either by putting on a display or workshop, or by coming along to promote and sell their unusual and innovative products. Amongst those already signed up are Vibrofit who will be putting on a 'cosmonaut fitness' demonstration, innovative teaching organisation Artroom Brighton with art based around skeletal animals & x-rays, and Endothermic & Exothermic Reaction demonstrations by local cosmetic company The Soapy Cauldron.
Brighton’s eco champion, Anthony Blakey of clean tech company Ultra Green International (UGI) will also be on hand to talk about the BP oil clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico, ably illustrated by his animated ambassador - Chuck the Eco Duck!
Added attractions include a silent auction, beer tent, inflatable planetarium and strolling characters dressed in sci-fi costumes.
The date of the event is Saturday 18 September 2010 from noon until 5pm, with free admission to the public. The charge for businesses to participate is just £25, or £15 for charities, although this is negotiable depending on the content and added interest that each organisation brings to the event. If you would like to sign up too, contact organiser Debra Wade by text to: 07778666893 (no calls please) or by e-mail to: Debrawade@aol.com.
