Urban Tree Festival: Urban Tree Talk
Sat 19 May, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm BSTFree
We are celebrating Urban Trees through an Urban Tree Festival over the weekend of the 18-20 May 2018.
Urban Tree Talk is an opportunity for people who have supported the Festival, as well as those working in encouraging, planting and in urban tree husbandry, to come together and share their enthusiasms. A “show and tell” of their experience, knowledge and stories and their aspirations about urban trees.
The Urban Tree Festival wouldn’t have happened without the tremendous support from more than 70 crowd funding contributors, and generous match funding from Trees for Cities. The organisers would like to thank those contributors as well as seeking their support in making Urban Tree Festivals happen again in future years.
If you have something to say about urban trees and would like to share your knowledge, expertise and stories then this is an opportunity for you – simply sign up for the event and complete this Get in Touch form to describe what you want to talk about. We would like to offer 5 minutes short talks at the very least – 10 slides with 30 seconds per slide – but we may be able to accommodate longer presentations.
Just want to come along and listen, and jostle with the Urban Tree Festival in-crowd? The event is free to attend but we are asking those of you who didn’t contribute to the Urban Tree Festival crowdfunding campaign to make a donation here, so we can cover venue costs and possibly have surplus for refreshments!
Our suggested donation is £5 for attending or £10 if you want to make a presentation. If you are a crowdfunding contributor there is no need to make a donation whether attending or presenting, but we still need you to register as spaces are limited.
Presenters already lined up include:
- Peter Coles, author of “Morus Londinnium: on mulberry heritage Urban Tree Festival co-producer
- Paul Wood, author “London Street Trees”and Urban Tree Festival co-producer
- Peter Fiennes, author of “Oak, Ash & Thorn”
- Grant Waters from Tranquil City app
The venue is within ‘Old Paradise Yard’ beside Archbishop’s Park – you can reach it from Carlisle Lane (corner with Royal Street).
