Event description
Join Paul Wood, author of London is a Forest and London's Street Trees on an urban forest exploration trail in Shoreditch & Spitalfields

About this Event

Celebrate 2019's Car Free Day by joining Paul Wood, author of 'London is a Forest' and 'London's Street Trees' on an urban forest exploration trail between east London's finest outdoor emporia. Starting at the Brokedown Palace, Spitalfields, Paul will lead us on a fascinating tour through the local streets and parklets looking at the remarkable diversity of trees found en route. We finish at the big sister Palace on Shoreditch High Street, where Paul will sign copies of his books which come with a special discount for those joining the trail of just £10 each! Expect to discover rare trees from all corners of the word, and learn about some of our familiar arboreal companions like the iconic London Plane. Reading Paul's books will make you see the city in a whole new way, so why not join the author to get a first hand insight into London's urban nature.

This event has been organised in collaboration with The Brokedown Palace, London's premier outdoor store, who are pleased to support the Urban Tree Festival. All proceeds from the sale of tickets to the urban forest trail will go to the 2020 Urban Tree Festival. The Urban Tree Festival will run over the May bank holiday weekend, and offers dozens of events all over town connecting Londoners to trees and green spaces. See urbantreefestival.org for more information.
