Travel differently, travel actively
ForwardMotion is delighted to announce its sponsorship of this year’s Village Green Festival, taking place in Chalkwell Park, Southend-on-Sea, on 13 July 2019. Village Green is a much loved arts and music festival produced by arts organisation Metal. This year marks the tenth edition of the arts festival, which regularly draws thousands of people.
Sponsorship of the Village Green Festival is part of ForwardMotion’s commitment to engage members of the community and encourage them to think differently about the way they travel around south Essex instead of jumping in the car for every journey.
ForwardMotion will be hosting a ‘ForwardMotion Village’ within the festival focused on cycling, walking and public transport. There will be fun activities such as performances from professional skateboarders and BMXers, static bike racing, balance bikes and a pop-up cycling track. There will also be representatives from local train and bus operators, providing travel advice and information.
Sean McLoughlin, festival director, said: “We are delighted that ForwardMotion is one of the Village Green sponsors this year as we are very passionate about promoting sustainable ways of transport to the event.
“Artist Lu Williams has been commissioned to create a creative entrance to their multi active space at the festival. Metal is excited about working with ForwardMotion and artist Nik Ramage to create a new public sculpture working with local colleges in the South East”
