Unbelievable but true. We have literally given trees a voice and we can’t wait for you to hear them!
London Tree Week, 27th May and 4th June, 10am to 4pm. Free Entrance.
Venture along the Thames, just past Tower Bridge and you’ll come across Potters Fields Park. This little green oasis, snuggled beside City Hall, is a haven for people, nature and some very special trees. We’ve partnered with the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, The Woodland Trust, to bring you an Audio Trail as part of London Tree Week where you can experience:
We are grateful to all the wonderful people who lent their voices, including award-winning poet Claire Dyer who wrote an incredible poem for Poetree. She has given the Ash tree a voice, drawing upon mythology, history, nature and our role in looking after these endangered trees. Also thanks to award winning-journalist Hazel Southam who lent her voice for Histree – it’s gritty and gripping! Then of course the one and only Poco Drom with the amazing Biodiversitree song – but you’ll have to find the Wingnut Tree at Potters Fields Park to hear that!
Below are a few totally treelaxed folk at our debut event in Prospect Park, Reading. That oak is 400 years old!
