IMG_5396Celebrating trees in London Tree Week!

  • 11.00am Monday 30 May 2016 Telegraph Hill – meet at the Hill Station cafe
  • 3.00pm Friday 3 June 2016 Brockwell Park – meet at the cafe at the grand house at the top of the hill

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?

60 minutes – accompanied children 7+ (siblings, parents and grandparents welcome)
