  • Urban Tree Festival

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 – each no more than 10 slides in 6 minutes.

Andrew Stuck – to introduce Urban Tree Talk – festival co-producer
Paul Wood – street trees – festival co-producer
Xanthe Mosely – Brockley street trees for living
Scott Barkwith – Evelyn 200
Simon Edwards – TiCL app tree trails

Break – request for donations – cash bar available

Mel Sutton – visualisation – festival co-producer
Peter Coles – mulberry heritage – festival co-producer
Peter Fiennes – Oak and Ash and Thorn
Carole Wright – community orchards in Blackfriars, Borough & Bermondsey
Grant Waters – Tranquil City app

We envisage a start at 17.40

Second session 18.40-19.10
Floor discussion 10 minutes
Next steps – where next the Urban Tree Festival? 10 minutes

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 Festivalshappen again in future years.

Just want to come along and listen, and jostle with the Urban Tree Festival in-crowd?

The event is (almost) 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, so we can cover venue costs and possibly have surplus for refreshments!

Our suggested donation is £5 for attending. If you are a crowdfunding contributor there is no need to make a donation whether attending or presenting.

No need to book – See you on a Saturday

The venue is within ‘Old Paradise Yard’ beside Archbishop’s Park – you can reach it from Carlisile Lane (corner with Royal Street).
