15th May 2021
The 2021 Urban Tree Festival kicks off on Saturday 15th May with an invitation to meditate with Mel Sutton, before launching into nine days packed with talks, walks (virtual and real), discussions, a book club, and a host of other activities.
Click here to see the full programme, day by day. Most events are free but you do have to book, and we encourage you to make a small donation, which will help next ear's festival to go ahead.
Mulberries will be making a couple of appearances during the Festival – on Friday 21st May at 12.00 noon Morus Londinium's co-founder and project coordinator, Peter Coles, will join John Collins of Hogarth's House for a Q&A Midday Modern Conversation on the Mulberry.
The title is a play on the title of one of Hogarth;s paintings: a Midnight Modern Conversation (or which only an engraving survives, as well as some painted imitations)
Right after the 'Conversation' I will be going hotfoot into another Zoom room to meet up with Greg Packman, Co-chair of the London Branch of the Ancient Tree Forum and co-producer of the Urban Tree Festival to give a short presentation on ancient urban mulberry trees - and maybe a few other species too.
Morus Londinium will re-start its walks programme after the Tree Festival, so watch this space!
