Rethinking Cities and the Museum of Walking are delighted to have been commissioned by the Sydney Gardens Project at Bath & North East Somerset Council to devise the  programme of events for its Tree Weekender this coming weekend (27 & 28 November).  We are encouraging people to join a range of walks and creative sessions in the gardens and have an online programme of activities and talks.

All the events are free, but because the on-the-ground activities will be run in small groups, booking is essential.

Booking via Eventbrite:

The Tree Weekender programme features guided walks to suit all ages and interests: ArborealSplendour in Bath (fully booked) follows a route from Royal Victoria Park to the gardens and is led by Paul Wood; Trees, What’s the point? will mark the launch of National Tree Week and is led by Lewis Morrison of The Tree Council and a Sydney Gardens Heritage Tree Walk (fully booked) will be led by Julian Hight.

Walks at a slower pace allow you to practice Mindfulness with Trees with Huw Griffiths or a twilight guided tree walk led by Richard White offering a soundscape surprise.

Family-friendly activities taking place in the gardens include Capture-Create, a photo collage activity for age 13+; Nature Play with Foxglove Forest School (fully booked) for under 8s and Sgrafitto in the Gardener’s Lodge, within Sydney Gardens in Bath. 

There are online talks on Ancient Trees: Living wonders and Arboreal ecosystems, and The Great Ginkgo: The Maidenhair tree and human health, as well as a Meditation with trees.

Online attendees can join a creative writing workshop or a drawing class (14+), take part in a conversation circle about strengthening our connections in nature, or quiz an expert panel on what tree to plant where.

We look forward to seeing you either in Sydney Gardens, Bath or online.
