The Festival of Sustainable Homes will this year be sponsored by Good Energy.

The event, organised by the National Self Build and Renovation Centre (NSBRC), is being held in Swindon on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May and is expected to attract thousands of people from across the country. 

The exhibition is set to feature over 200 exhibitors, offering advice and information on how to make homes more sustainable, together with inspiring talks and educational tours. 

It will also feature a nature zone shining a spotlight on charities and other organisations working to protect the environment. 

The NSBRC, at Lydiard Fields off junction 16 of the M4, is the UK’s only permanent visitor centre designed specifically to meet the needs of individual self-builders, renovators and home improvers. 

Managing Director, Harvey Fremlin, said, “With a 25-year legacy as renewable pioneers, based down the road from us in Chippenham, Good Energy are the perfect partners for the festival.  

“We are excited to work with the team to help thousands of people to learn more about creating better, sustainable homes.” 

Head of Marketing at Good Energy, Laura Wildish, said, “We’re excited to support the NSBRC’s first festival and look forward to it being a huge success. People are increasingly keen to play their part in tackling the climate crisis, and there’s no better place to start than how we power and heat our own homes. The festival will be perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy a greener life.” 

The Festival of Sustainable Homes will be open on Friday 17th and Saturday 18th May from 9am-5pm. Tickets are free if booked in advance.
