What's On?

Sustainability Show 2022

The Sustainability Show is where vision meets action.

We're passionate about making sustainable living open and accessible to everyone. Join us to explore a dynamic and inspiring array of activations, installations, and features that will ignite your passion for sustainability and equip you with actionable insights to drive positive change in your everyday life.

Main Stage 

This is the heart of the Show and one of the most popular features at the event. Listen to inspiring speakers talk about their individual journeys and share life lessons. Previous speakers have included icons such as Ben Fogle, Hamza Yassine, Andy Burnham, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Max La Manna, Lucy Siegle and Liz Bonnin. 


You’ll get the chance to meet speakers in our “Meet and Greet” area, and take the all-important selfie! 

Alternative Stage 

The Alternative Stage is where you gain practical tips and swaps from a wide range of expert speakers. We’ll be looking at ways to reduce food waste, ideas for your next eco-friendly holiday, how to look good with less impact, and how to create a greener home. 


You’ll get the chance to join the debate, ask questions, and get involved.  

Upcycling Workshop 

Roll your sleeves up and get stuck in! Our workshop is crammed full of interactive hands-on sessions helping you to adopt a more circular lifestyle and avoid putting stuff in the bin. Learn how to mend, make and upcycle furniture, homewares and clothes with upcycling experts. You will learn how to save more from being wasted, do more with less, and ultimately save money! 

Chef’s Corner 

Join some of the UK’s most sustainable chefs as they whip up tasty treats that help save the planet and share their tips and tricks to battle food waste, save money on your shopping and eat more healthily. 

Mindfulness Tent 

Hosted by Jarvis Smith from My Green Pod, the Mindfulness Tent offers a sanctuary of peace and calm. Meditation sessions, breath work and immersive sound experiences will help you raise awareness and consciousness of the Earth, Gaia, Mother Nature, the wisdom of our ancestors and the spirit alive within us and all things. 

Plant Kitchen 

We hope you come to the Sustainability Show hungry! We will have an exciting range of plant based and planet friendly food and drink on offer, much of it from within Greater Manchester, to keep our food miles down and to showcase the city’s incredible artisans, producers, brewers, bakers and coffee roasters. 

Conscious Coffee Cup 

Join us for a delicious ethical coffee at our gorgeous Conscious Coffee Cup, where we will partner with some of the most forward-thinking coffee and tea brands where you can relax, meet friends, and chat about the exciting sessions! 


You’ll be able to carry on conversations and meet other people with a shared interest in sustainability who want to meet up and chat without an agenda. 

Little Green Minds 

The Sustainability Show is suitable for all ages, and we have an area dedicated to helping young ones learn and play with the planet in mind. From wooden toys to the best new books to help your kids learn about ecosystems, animals and the world we live on - come and spend some time in our Little Green Minds zone. 

Pop Up Book Shop 

Welcome to our onsite book shop! We want to help you learn more about the planet, so where better than a book shop. 


Bring your own books and swap them at our secondhand bookshop, or pick up copies of the latest books by some of our incredible speakers, chefs, and experts. You’ll also be able to meet our speakers here for book signings.
