In celebration of trees and woodland, we are supporting London Tree Week (27 May to 4 June), with the help of the Mayor of London.
Fun for the family, but more so for children. You get to hear about trees, some truths, some fibs, and have fun making up tall stories about them too.
Everyone has heard of an ‘old wive’s tale’ or two about a tree – here’s your chance to test your wits and your story telling powers – to discover which stories are tree or false?
Fulham Palace Gardens is home to a variety of trees including London’s oldest Holm oak, black mulberry, and the Indian Bean tree to just name three species.
What participants said:
What I like best about the event | What I found surprising | How much you enjoyed it and why?
- Being outdoors – good balance of information and fun! | Snicker bars aren’t made with hazelnuts | 5 stars – we learnt lots about trees!
- Storytelling and walking out doors! Pleasure of listening to everyone’s stories | 5 stars – really fun, well paced, and very child friendly, just the right length for the kids.
