Can I bring my dog?

Dogs are welcome in the town centre and some activities will be on the street. However, many of the stalls will be indoors, where it may not be practical/permitted to bring dogs, so we’d recommend you leave your 4 legged friends at home if possible.

Will there be alcohol for sale?

We will definitely be selling a range of sustainable alcohol, along with a range of healthy and sustainable drinks.

Will there be coffee for sale?

There will most definitely be coffee for sale, along with a range of other healthy and sustainable drinks.

Is the Manningtree Earth Festival suitable for kids?

100% yes! In fact, we WANT you to bring your kids. The care of our planet involves them as much as us!


Please arrive at the festival on foot or by bike if possible. There are bike stands at Manningtree rail station, opposite the Wholefood Store on the High Street and outside the sorting office near the library. Manningtree is well connected by rail to Ipswich, Colchester and the Mistley line. See www.trainline.com for tickets and timetables. 

There are also a number of buses that come into Manningtree and we strongly encourage travel by public transport where possible. If you do drive, please don’t try to park in the town centre.
