Getting to the venue
Albert Hall is located just off Commonwealth Bridge on Kaye Street. It is accessible by bus, bicycle, and on foot. If you need to get to the venue on the day by motor vehicle with your stall equipment, here are some directions:
1. Approaching the Hall:
If approaching from the north of Canberra, Albert Hall will be on your right as you leave the Commonwealth Bridge. Travelling past the Hall, turn right at the set of traffic lights on Coronation Drive; OR
If approaching from the south of Canberra, Adelaide Avenue will take you onto the Capital Circle around Parliament House. When you reach the set of traffic lights turn left onto Coronation Drive.
2. At the first roundabout turn right onto Flynn Drive.
3. After 300m turn right into Kaye Street.
4. Albert Hall will be on your left.
Stall size & equipment
Outside stalls are 3m x 3m and inside stalls are 2.5m x 2.5m.
Your stall will come with chairs, a table and a marquee if you selected these on your registration form. The tables are approximately 180cm long x 76cm wide.
Otherwise you will need to provide your own equipment on the day, including marquees for outside stalls.

On the day - all stalls
On the day of the Festival (Sunday 2 October 2016) the following times have been allocated for setting up:
7:30am for food and drink vendors
8.00am for merchandise vendors
8:30am for not-for-profit groups
The Festival will start at 10am.
Access to the venue
We try to make setting up 80+ stalls and exhibits as convenient as possible within the inevitable restrictions of a heritage venue.
On arrival at the Albert Hall you will be able to park temporarily near the hall to unload your vehicle.
There will be many volunteers on hand (look out for people in high-vis vests) who will help take things to your stall.
Parking during the day
There will be spaces in the Treasury Carpark just across Commonwealth Avenue, off Langton Crescent. From there it is a short walk through the underpass under Commonwealth Avenue and you’re at the Hall. Parking will also be available in the parking lot between the Albert Hall and the Hyatt Hotel, and back down towards the lake.
Stall presentation, packaging, and ATMs etc
We encourage you to decorate your stall with posters, signs, banners, products, or anything that will make it as colourful and interesting as possible.
Please use environmentally-friendly or sustainable packaging for products sold at the event. Please avoid using or giving away plastic bags to customers. Attendees will be able to obtain non-plastic shopping bags at the event.
While there will be ATMs available at the Festival, it would be great if stalls could also provide EFTPOS/credit card facilities on the day if possible.
On the day there will be many Festival volunteers (in their Festival t-shirts and high-vis vests) to help you with any issues that may arise so don't hesitate to flag one down!
The Festival finishes at 4pm so please leave your packing up until then. Volunteers will be on hand to assist with packing up and loading your vehicles. Given the number of stall holders all leaving at the same time it may be easiest to pack up on site and then carry your equipment to the car park rather than bringing your vehicle to the Hall. You will be able to drive into the Albert Hall access road off Kaye Street if you are not already parked there. The Hall has to be vacated by 6pm so all stall holders and event property will need to be removed from the premises by this time.
Living Green Festival – a cruelty-free event
The Living Green Festival is a vegan event. We are grateful to stall holders for only selling, promoting, or displaying information and products that are friendly to all animals and that don’t contain any animal products or animal-derived ingredients – thank you :)
If you need to cancel your registration after payment, cancellations will be refunded up to one month before the Festival, less a $50 administration fee. Refunds are not possible less than a month before the Festival as all funds will be committed to the event.
