Event description

Description

Discover the legends and folktales lurking in the woods. Our senses will guide us through this walking-lore of Dulwich and Sydenham Hill Woods. Together we will trace the tale of the orphaned Lambeth girl, who lived among the trees and used them to stow away a book which she had written in her own secret language. Along the way, discover the ghosts of the Victorians who cut through the Woods, only for the Wood to fight back and become a haven for wildlife.

This event is being run in partnership with the Greater London Authority as part of London Tree Week supported by the Mayor of London.
