ENergy fest

Tavistock Butchers Hall 
Saturday 12th November 

With ever increasing energy prices, now may seem a good time to consider options within your home and/or business for addressing energy efficiency … and retrofitting to improve the buildings performance, cost of heating and levels of comfort.

With this in mind, our theme for our 2022 Energy Fest is “Retrofitting and Energy Efficiency Matters”.

We look forward to welcoming you to Butchers’ Hall in Tavistock on Saturday Nov. 12th from 10:00 until 15:00.

This is a free, family friendly event, suitable for all ages.


Saturday 12th November

Tavistock Butchers Hall 

We’ll have a mixture of fun activities, short talks, advice stands, displays, and exhibitors providing information about how to retrofit your home, business or organisation, make them more energy efficient, warm and comfortable; how to reduce your energy bills; generate your own energy; and what you can do to reduce your carbon impact and do ‘your bit’ to progress towards net zero.

Open Homes network

We’ll also have a display of our Open Homes network featuring householders who have undertaken their own projects and are happy to share their experiences and lessons learnt, good and bad.


Activities will include an interactive smart meter display, an art activity, a family energy quiz and we hope, an activity with our community gardeners.

You can buy competitively priced LED bulbs; and have a breather and enjoy a drink and home-made cake from our refreshment stand at our energy cafe.

Activities for children … and adults include:

  • Interactive smart meter display
  • Tavistock’s Energy Future – participative art
  • What is watt?
  • How energetic are you?
