This Valentine’s Big Green Week is searching for the most inventive love note to the future to launch the UK’s largest festival of its kind coming up this June. You’ve already gone head over heels for the independent charm, creativity and ambition of the city, now with Bristol on the international stage as European Green Capital, it’s time to fall in love with the future.
Big Green Week’s organisers are encouraging people to share a Valentine to the future via social media – their passions and hopes for themselves, their beloveds, their families, their city and beyond. #Lovethefuture messages can be as inventive and bold as you like. The most creative answer will win a limited edition t-shirt designed by world-renowned Bristol-born graffiti artist, Inkie.

For the warm and fuzzy feeling it gives you at the cash register today, and the fact that it will protect the local economy for tomorrow?

Last year the Festival attracted 50,000 visitors who enjoyed two weekends of free entertainment and nine days of inspiring talks, workshops, art, music, poetry, comedy and films.
