No-New-Plastic Fancy Dress Show
Take part in our unique No-new Plastic Fancy Dress Show. (Not a competition).
11am – 11.30am Outdoor Stage (or in the Performance Tent if the weather is horrid- which it won’t be of course).
Fantastical fancy dress is always encouraged at The Fairy Fair. As always the theme is “fairy” ( any magical creature) or British nature.
Have you spent hours making your child’s (or perhaps your entire families) fancy dress costume? Have you reused old clothes, materials and costumes or used entirely natural new fabrics? Are you confident you have used no new plastic in their construction?
If so, please show them off to all and come and take part in our fashion show.
Children and adults and family groups are most welcome to come and strut their stuff and inspire us all with your creations.
Please come to the stage and queue up for your moment of glory. If anyone wants to say something about their creation they are more than welcome but if you are feeling shy, have no fear as we will do the talking for you.
Let’s show everyone how fabulous you can look without harming our nature.
Here are some previous inspiring efforts.
Why this emphasis on non-plastic?
Because as you may know, we’ve been trying for years to get away from the commercialism and plastic-waste generating aspects many events and in the last few years it has become increasingly evident that we all have a huge problem with plastic, including ‘hidden’ plastic in clothing. Essentially plastic is not recyclable in the same way that say aluminium or glass is, and loads of what is sent-for-recycling ends up as waste, becoming micro-plastic pollution, or at best, getting incinerated.
Avoiding Glitter Pollution
We’ve designed-out glitter from Workshops and used other things for magical highlights. See more at Cutting Out The Plastic.
