Start UKThe Prince of Wales is joining forces this Summer with musicians, comedians, environmental experts and some of Britain’s best known companies to create a unique festival in the heart of London.

The Prince is opening up his own gardens at Clarence House, together with his neighbours’ gardens at Lancaster House and Marlborough House this September.

‘A Garden Party To Make A Difference’, a rare opportunity to visit these historic gardens, will last 12 days, from 8 to the 19 September 2010, from 10am to 6pm daily. There will be a timed entry at hourly intervals with final admission at 4pm. Tickets are on-sale. The event aims to give people of all ages a fun day out while at the same time, via the exhibits, demonstrating the small steps that can, and are, being taken by all of us, interested in building a more sustainable future.

The Prince of Wales said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome visitors into my gardens, and those of my immediate neighbours, for this exciting festival. We have a fantastic team of talented curators who are helping us create an event which will, I hope, be both fun and informative. This festival is just one way in which Start can help to demonstrate how we can all make a difference, however big or small the steps we take.”

The 12 day Garden Party, in the heart of London, will be an intriguing blend of exhibitions, interactive displays, fun activities and live performances throughout the day from comedians, musicians and speakers. Each area of the Garden Party will be curated by a celebrity champion. These include: Musical Programme created by Jools Holland – Debate by Jonathan Dimbleby, Sanjeev Bhaskar & Clive Anderson – Comedy by Marcus Brigstocke and Hugh Dennis – Growing and Gardens by Alan Titchmarsh – Food and The Great Outdoors by Kate Humble – Ecocars by Roger Saul and Kevin McCloud – Fashion by Dame Vivienne Westwood

‘A Garden Party To Make a Difference’ is being supported by some of the biggest brands and household names, such as Addison Lee, Asda, B&Q, BT Group, EDF Energy, IBM UK and Ireland, M&S, Virgin Money and Waitrose. IBM will convene a nine day summit, ‘The IBM Summit at Start’, for business and industry leaders from 8 to 16 September at Lancaster House. The aim of the Summit will be to stimulate discussion on the initiatives that companies can take around economic, environmental and societal sustainability.

    Emma Watson To Unveil Spring Eco-friendly People Tree Clothing Collection

    Actress Emma Watson has chosen to unveil the latest additions to her eco-friendly People Tree clothing collection at Prince Charles’ A Garden Party To Make A Difference which runs September 8-19. Visitors to the event will get a sneak peek at Watson’s collection which hits the shops in Spring 2011.

    “I’m so thrilled that People Tree will be showing the spring-summer collection at the garden party,” the 20-year-old told the London Evening Standard. “I think the Prince of Wales’s initiative is such a brilliant idea and I’m thrilled.” Launched in February, Prince Charles’ Start Initiative aims to help people across the UK lead more sustainable lives.

    Prince Charles Putting Solar Panels on Roof Clarence House

    Prince Charles, who is attributed with personally reducing his carbon footprint at each of his four residences by 4% and also boosting his use of green power by 22%, is taking Clarence House in an even more efficient direction. The 19th century dwelling – which was deemed carbon neutral three years ago due to such efforts as using household grey water to irrigate landscaping and installing low-energy boilers – will soon be fitted with 32 rooftop solar panels, generating 4,000 kilowatt hours of energy annually.

    Prince Charles is reportedly footing the $46,5000 bill himself and any excess energy produced could potentially earn him roughly 63 cents/41 pence per unit (a reminder of how it definitely pays to green up one’s act). Source: Ecorazzi

    Prince Charles takes Royal Train on eco-tour of Britain.

    Charles will travel by the bio-fuel powered Royal Train as he takes his message to communities from Glasgow to London. START, launched earlier this year, encourages people to consider a more energy efficient, less wasteful way of life. During his trip, the Prince will meet people and communities making a difference. They include the students behind a sustainable fashion show in Manchester and the team that has launched a beehive scheme in Newcastle.

    The journey started at Glasgow’s Central Station where Charles will meet START representatives before departing for Edinburgh to the sound of a lone piper. Following his arrival at Waverley the Prince will meet local producers at a festival in St Andrew’s Square and visit a START shop in the St James Shopping Centre. The Royal tour will then head to Carmarthen, Bristol, Newcastle, Todmorden, Manchester, Nottingham, and Birmingham, finishing in London on Friday. Source: Telegraph

    Racing the Royal Train: The Royal Train won’t be the only means of transport involved in the Start tour. While the Royal Train, powered by sustainable biofuel, travels around the UK this September, Start will also be highlighting another sustainable form of energy: pedal power. As part of the Start tour, we are promoting cycling as a healthy, fun and sustainable form of transport. To make this happen, we have enlisted the help of British Cycling, the national governing body for cycling in the UK.

    To coincide with the stops on the Royal Train tour, British Cycling will be hosting a commuter ride in Glasgow on 6 September and commuter breakfasts in Manchester on 8 September and Birmingham on 9 September. Read more on how to join the commuter rides. On 6 September, British Cycling have also organised a special cycle challenge. For this, a special team of cyclists will pedal from Glasgow to Edinburgh. HRH The Prince of Wales will start the challenge. The Start team will race to arrive in Edinburgh before the Royal Train leaves Edinburgh Station later than day. Source: START
