The Beer Tent this year is again being supplied by The Tabard in Bath Road W4, with a range of beers and other drinks.

Since 2005, under the slogan ‘Keep Green Days Green’, the Bedford Park Festival has recycled all waste on the Green Days weekend, earning praise from Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth. The Festival's campaign urges local people to look beyond the Green Days weekend and 'Make every day a Green Day'.
The waste management company Suez is handling our reycling, providing Green Days with waste containers and waste removal. As all waste can be put in the same bin, it makes it easier for everyone to recycle their rubbish and keep the site clean. All waste then goes to its local transfer station where it will be sorted and 100% recycled or used for energy, meaning that no waste will go to landfill.
