    pebble's events are back.

    While we can't organise them in a physical location this year, we didn't want to let the year pass without some big effort to get together, talk, learn, shop, share, drink and have a good old chat - which has made our other pebblefest events so much fun.

    So we're back with FutureFest on 7 & 8 Nov - where we invite you to imagine what the future looks like if and when we get to carbon neutral. What do our lives, work and clothes look like? What are we eating and where are we going?

    Join us for two days of talks, panels, workshops, demos, shopping, dancing and drinking - and yes we can do this all online and you don't have to leave your home.

    We couldn't do without our ace headline sponsor, Treedom or our brand partners Borough Wines and Karma.

    Scroll down to check out what's happening and don't forget to buy your tickets!

    Also don't miss the music stage and where to find us when it all finishes!

    More talk, more action

    We know the problems facing our world, right? We've been to enough talks, panels, webinars where the same old issues are highighted again and again.

    This is different. We're looking at the solutions, services, brands and people who are going to get us to carbon neutral - and beyond. We want you to take part, ask questions, share ideas and pledges on our festival online whiteboard.

    Or just listen and take action at home. All of our talks will be recorded so you can catch up on demand wherever you are in the world and whatever you are doing.

    From regenerative agriculture to the future of travel to what our wardrobes will look like if they are carbon neutral - this is about big ideas, new inventions and some hope that we can make the changes we need. A lot of people are already pushing us on our way.

    Find the full programme here and get involved.

    Tom Hunt will be talking with Douglas McMaster and Guy Singh Watson about regenerative agriculture

    Let's learn

    Visit the learn stage over the weekend for a variety of demo's and workshops from mindset change and what we can learn from trees from Eleanore Snare to how to ferment and pickle by Towpath Cafe.

    Tom Hunt will be sharing plant based recipes to use up food waste, while Rob Hopkins (author of From What Is To What If) will be leading a session around restoring our imagination. Join intention setting with As We Live & Breathe or learn how to mend your jeans with 7 Crafts Boutique.

    And let's have some fun!

    All work and no play makes us dull right? So join us each evening in virtual pub, The Hope Inn, where the pebble team will be around for chats, networking and introductions - the only thing we can't do is buy you a round.

    Discover the My House Your House Treehouse Rave stage, which will be running each day from morning to afternoon, where DJs from around the world will be video streaming into your living room.

    The more people dancing, the more trees we will be planting simple as that.

    We will also be planting at least 200 trees with Treedom, in order to offset our emissions created during this festival. They'll be added to our existing pebble forest in Kenya - check out more info here.
