Media Release: Major national event comes to Perth

Fair Trade Nation

THIS September, Perth is playing host to a major national event: Scotland’s Fair Trade Festival 2013!

The Fair Trade Festival, hosted by the Scottish Fair Trade Forum, will be a national celebration of Scotland’s official recognition as a Fair Trade Nation earlier this year.

It will take place in the Station Hotel in Perth, from 10am-4pm on Saturday 7 September, with entrance for the whole day free of charge.

With campaigners and sellers, from across the country and beyond, present to share their knowledge and showcase their products, it aims to be Scotland’s biggest ever Fair Trade event!

As well as bringing together organisations from across the country, the Festival will be an exciting, action-packed and interactive daylong event.

Stalls will be selling a vast range of Fair Trade goods, delicious food, and handmade crafts and Traidcraft will also be exhibiting their new range of products.

Workshops, film screenings and guest speakers ranging from radio personalities to Fair Trade producers will educate and inform about Fair Trade, whilst captivating performances will have young and old entertained throughout the day.

There will also be a range of exciting activities for adults and children, from wine tasting and face painting to a bouncy castle, kick abouts and even a treasure hunt.

We will share more details as they become available in the coming weeks, but for now be sure to save the date!
