Urban Tree Festival: London Woodland Walk
Sat 18 May @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm BST£4 – £8
Part of London’s 2019 Urban Tree Festival, made possible by city-greening charity Trees for Cities. We are delighted to welcome Peter Fiennes, author of ‘Oak and Ash and Thorn‘, to lead a 90 minute woodland walk in Wimbledon.
Join Peter Fiennes, author of ‘Oak and Ash and Thorn: the ancient woods and new forests of Britain’ on a woodland walk across Wimbledon Common.
The walk is part of the Urban Tree Festival– and we will be discussing the topical issue of woods and trees in cities. Peter will also explore some of the other themes of his recent book (called ‘extraordinary’ by the Observer and ‘set to become a classic of the genre’): the magic and folklore of woods and trees; conservation; our fear of the forests; and the tragic history of their loss and precarious future.
Meet Peter Fiennes at the crossroads of Cannizaro Road and The Causeway
We will not travel too far, but we will be leaving the beaten track…
It is recommended that you book in advance to ensure your place however, please note tickets will only go on sale after Easter.
