On the Sunday of the Green Days weekend, we reset Acton Green to make room for dozens of charity, local community and craft stalls. Like the stallholders in the Craft Fair marquees, they pay us a fee, which goes towards our Festival charities.
The 2018 stalls are listed below:
An internationally renowned centre of excellence for the study of the performing arts, offering outstanding conservatoire training in Musical Theatre, Dance and Drama. You may know ArtsEd for its Day School, Sixth Form or BA courses, but you might not know that it offers that little bit Extra! Get involved in their Saturday Skills academy where your child could excel in Musical Theatre or Acting, or perhaps book onto one of their exciting Summer courses with real professionals from the industry teaching the classes.
To try it for yourself, sign up for a FREE taster session of Saturday Skills Academy on Saturday 7 July: https://artsed.co.uk/weekend-courses/free-taster-sessions

Friends of the Earth Ealing
A local group of volunteers who campaign on environmental issues. Currently we're focussing on bees, clean air and plastics. We meet on the third Wednesday each month at St John's Church, West Ealing. Visit http://www.ealingfoe.org.uk to find out more.
Jasmine & Pink
Jasmine & Pink was created out of the love of travel, from years of exploring through the vibrant and colourful country of India. Inspired by its diverse communities and traditional crafts, we aim to showcase and design some of the most beautiful homeware and lifestyle pieces, with the focus on fair trade and sustainability.
The main collection from 'jasmine & pink' features cotton block print fabric pieces, but we also offer other handcrafted products to complement the collection. Each piece tells a story and brings a meaningful item to your home.
We believe ethics and aesthetics go hand in hand. No child labour, no harm to the environment, no mass-produced wares, no unfairly paid miners and makers; just quality chic jewellery made by small family businesses and individuals who pride themselves on authenticity and integrity to the world around them.
We create jewellery for independent, bright, sparky and ambitious women with their own individual styles who wear everything in their own way.
Minimal forms and updated traditional shapes are infused effortlessly with mixed metals contrasts, hand-hammered textures, and vibrant coloured stones. We believe jewellery can be done differently, inspiring fashionistas world over to wear their story with consciousness.
Keira Rathbone Typewriter Art
My name is Keira Rathbone and I am an established fine artist living and working in Chiswick, at Pavilion Studios, Dukes Meadows. For over 15 years I have developed a unique drawing technique that began somewhat accidentally, employing a manual typewriter as a drawing tool. I draw images from life using my typewriter, seeing each imprint as a texture or shape with which to build complete drawings. I develop and exhibit images based around compelling themes and often incorporate live audio/visual performances by typing before an audience with video projection, sound effects and collaborations with other artists in the UK and abroad.
I sell original works, limited edition prints, tshirts, cards and offshoot products at events and on my website. I love to create commissions for private clients as well as for publication - a selection of previous projects are viewable on my website, So please head there, or talk to me to find out more!
London Buddhist Vihara
Located just a few yards from St Michael & All Angels Church, the Vihara is in its 92nd year and is the oldest Buddhist Temple outside Asia, offering spiritual guidance by Theraveda Monks from Sri Lanka. Various classes are offered each week including Buddhism for Beginners, several advanced courses for higher-level students and regular instruction on Meditation and Mindfulness. On Sundays, there is a vibrant Childrens Dhamma School that welcomes people from all communities aged 5 – 16. Visit our stall to find out more and enjoy a fresh cup of Ceylon Tea with some delicious Sri Lankan canapés.
My needlepoint kits are fresh and contemporary, focusing on colour and geometric pattern. They are suitable for beginners and experienced stitches alike and the finished needlepoint can be made into a beautiful cushion, or a framed artwork.
In an age where life is becoming increasingly hectic, needlepoint is a very calming and therapeutic craft. The satisfaction of completing a piece is also very rewarding, especially as it is something lovely to keep, or give to someone as a gift.

A community youth project for 11-19 year olds in West London. Set up in 2009 the group now has over 300 young people involved in its activities including two league football teams, dance, fitness coacing, kick boxing and a traditional youth club.
After her son was shot in the face one afternoon after school, Sally Chacatte, Founder and Chair of W4 Youth created the charity with the vision to build a youth and community centre in W4 to give the young people of the area somewhere safe to go and something good to do 7 days a week.
