This two-day event, which takes place on Saturday 3rd November – Sunday 4th November 2012 at Birbeck University of London, is a well organised celebration of our oceans and rainforests. It is a weekend to appreciate the Earth and the dangers our environment faces, inspiring us all to get involved the social and environmental issues through a series of workshops and film screenings, art exhibitions, music and informative discussions. Guest speakers and leading environmental and social researchers will be attending. The BBC will also be covering the event.


Food and Refreshments will be available throughout the day, and among them a most fitting and special blend of coffee from Union Hand - Roasted.


The Organic Natural Spirit Blend is a combination of washed coffees from Balcones Especial, Northern Peru and Konga, providing an exquisite taste of sweet lemon and dried apricot notes with a caramel toffee-like viscous body, which is sure to please visitors at the festival. Organic certified by the Soil Association, it is a blend perfectly suited to the occasion.


Alan Miller from Union Hand - Roasted commented:


“We at Union Hand - Roasted are proud sponsors of the whale of a time festival and are delighted to contribute our special blend, available to all the valuable visitors who will be coming to the festival. Their attendance alone will help to make a difference and we want to show our appreciation.”


The whale of a time festival is in conjunction of the 10th annual ESRC Festival of Social Science.
