Big Church Festival


Together with our partners, we are working to make BCDO a greener, cleaner event.

We’ve been looking at power consumption, recycling, single use plastics and food waste and making changes to ensure that we are constantly moving towards our ultimate goal, this being a completely carbon-neutral event.

Small decisions collectively make a big difference, so to massively reduce the amount of waste on site we’d love you to;

  • Use a refillable bottle this year (you can buy one from the Big Church Merch Tent) and fill up at one of our Hydration Stations!
  • Make the most of our recycling system by popping your rubbish in the right bin
  • Return any reusable cups from our cafes or bars

We are proactively removing ALL single use plastics from BCDO by equipping every artist and team member with a reusable bottle, using compostable cups in our cafes, reusable beakers in our bars and insisting that all our food vendors find alternative serving products and only sell canned drinks.
