Green City Returns To Chelmsford This Summer

Green City returns to Chelmsford this summer! Curated by Chelmsford For You, the city’s Business Improvement District, Green City is a fun and inspiring event that will bring the city centre to life with a range of free family entertainment, whilst raising awareness of environmental issues and educating the public in ways they can be more green!

A full programme of events will run from Monday 21 – Saturday 26 August 2023 in multiple locations across the city centre, including Bond Street Chelmsford. This will feature a family friendly mix of:

  • Unique Street Entertainment
  • Live Music
  • Shows
  • Story Sessions
  • Activities and Workshops
  • Spoken Word and Poetry
  • Green Market
  • Creative Installations

2023 will see the return of the 50ft Sperm Whale, taking to the High Street, where people are invited to venture inside and be entertained by a fabulous environmentally themed show, Plastic Ocean! A new feature this year will be the Green City Live Music Stage on Saturday 26 August, which will host a programme of entertainment with a mix of eco inspired music, poetry and more – from our friends at Emjay media.

Green City’s programme will touch on and explore a range of key environmental topics in a light-hearted and enjoyable way, including sustainability, plastic waste, waterways, and green spaces. The programme will provide an opportunity to learn more about the current issues surrounding these topics, and how small changes in our daily routines can help preserve our planet and ecosystem.
