Belladrum Tartan Heart festival, which has a “superheroes” theme this year, is delighted to announce that it has furthered its own local superhero credentials through partnership with the Highland Council’s Carbon CLEVER initiative. 

The sold-out festival, which is now in its 12th year and is held near Beauly between 6th and 8th August, recognises the important role it can play in promoting sustainability, and has become the newest signatory of the Carbon CLEVER Declaration.

Carbon CLEVER, which has the aim of a low carbon Highlands by 2025, will be running an exciting programme of events at Belladrum including a treasure hunt, pub quiz, a “Carbon Court”, as well as a team of “Green” Police, who will be promoting good behaviour in fun and interactive ways with festival goers. 

Joe Gibbs, Belladrum’s Festival Director, said: “We are really looking forward to working with the Carbon CLEVER team over the coming weeks in the run up to the festival, and very much buy in to the whole Carbon CLEVER ethos.”

“The festival has an excellent record in terms of sustainability, but we recognise that there’s always more we can do, and becoming a signatory of the Carbon CLEVER Declaration is the logical next step.  Putting on an innovative programme of events with Carbon CLEVER will really add to the Bella experience while helping us mitigate the festival’s environmental impact.” 

Stephen Carr, Principal Policy Officer – Climate Change at the Highland Council, said: “It’s fantastic for Carbon CLEVER to be part of Belladrum this year, and we are very grateful to the organisers for having us on board.” 

“The team are really looking forward to engaging with festival goers, and our programme of events is going to be exciting, fun and interactive.”
