The second is Back to the Future. Ulverstone’s North West Ecofest is being held on April 13th, 2019 – 10.00am to 4.00pm. The theme is Back to the Future: where the Wisdom of the past meets the innovation of the future. Entry to the festival is by gold coin donation. The festival offers an opportunity to engage with some local community groups, businesses and individuals who are willing to share expertise in the areas of sustainability, wellbeing and the environment.

Stalls, workshops and talks as well as food, buskers and children’s activities will complete the experience.
