We are thrilled to be sponsoring the annual Greensand Country Festival, taking place in May, for the second year running as the Key Festival Sponsor.
For five weeks in May, Bedfordshire locals can enjoy and celebrate the breath-taking Greensand Country landscape, which is defined by the Greensand Ridge. Stretching for 42 miles, the Ridge runs from Leighton Buzzard to Gamlingay, and is home to all of the county’s remaining heathland, more than half of its woodland and more historical parklands than anywhere else in Britain.
The festival is designed to encourage those who live within the area to get outside and explore the outstanding countryside in a sustainable way.
As part of the festival, local businesses, councils, social groups, charities, landowners and more come together and organise a diverse range of inclusive and fun activities. From walks, cycle routes and horse rides to outdoor yoga, wellbeing talks and live music, there’s something for all ages and interests.
A range of hotels, eateries and independent shops are also dotted along the landscape, as well as attractions and tourist hotspots, including the Leighton Buzzard Railway, Woburn Abbey and Woburn Safari Park.
The festival is run by The Greensand Country Landscape Partnership, and was first held in May 2018.
Our sponsorship of the festival comes as part of a wider donation, in which we are supporting and raising awareness of Greensand Country. Other activities covered by our donation include the funding of drone footage and a leaflet, and a cycling competition on social media in June.
Kerry Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Mulberry Homes, said: “We are delighted to be the Key Festival Sponsor of the Greensand Country Festival for the second consecutive year.
“At Mulberry Homes, we are committed to supporting and forging lasting partnerships within the Bedfordshire communities amongst which we operate, including those within the Greensand Country area.
“We are very much looking forward to enjoying this incredible festival ourselves, and hope that everyone in the local area is able to spend time appreciating the wonderful environment on their doorstep.”
