We always want to encourage more people to participate in the arts, and our green policy, which you can download here, is an essential part of ensuring that we remain sustainable and able to follow this ambition.
Over the last three years, we have worked collectively to reduce our carbon emissions and are proud to share that we have reduced our energy consumption by 13.8%.
With your help, we can continue to build on this success and ensure we remain sustainable and secured for future generations.
We encourage you to take a look around our maltings stores, open Monday – Friday 9am–5pm and Saturday 10am–1.50pm, where you can find both upcycled and reused furniture and homeware, as well as a variety of products made by local artists, all within close vicinity to the Maltings.
Our Riverside Cafe is another area of the business that we try to make as green as possible. We seek out local food suppliers which include Cupsmith Coffee, Smallbone & Sons family butchers, and Tongham Bakery to name a few.
We also hold events that have a connection with our green ethos, such as Bike: a festival of cycling, and theatre performances such as The HandleBard’s As You Like It, an all-female troupe who travel from show to show via bicycles, coming in June 2017. For our Farnham Afternoon Tea event, we implemented a car share scheme, and also had a shuttle bus running, to reduce the amount of car journeys to and from the event. Our Spring 2017 cine club season worked in collaboration with Farnham Eco Cinema to present a season of environmental and sustainability-focused films. For summer 2017, we will be hosting a talk by Germaine Greer called Women for Life on Earth, focusing on how women have campaigned for environmental issues.
Finally, in order to improve our environmental sustainability, we encourage visitors to use public transport or car share to reduce the overall carbon footprint. Farnham train station is a short walk away, as shown below, and for a step by step guide, you can check out the walking map at the bottom of the page.
