Don’t miss Tree Tales at Dulwich Park this week!
Tree Tales is a celebration of the arrival of spring and the beauty and magic of the trees around us.
Over two days artists will lead open workshops which will culminate in the creation of tree sculptures, using the trees of Dulwich Park as inspiration. Dulwich people have been telling us their stories and poetry about trees and these will form the basis for a sound scape to accompany the trees. The sculptures will be illuminated at the final event and you can make a wish in a 3-metre high pillar of fire!
Thursday 11 April and Friday 12 April, 10am – 4pm
Come along and take part in free drop in art workshops to make your own section of a tree sculpture. Led by artists Mary Branson and Jono Retallick, the workshops are open to all ages, children should be accompanied, and you can stay for as long as you like. If raining, the workshops will take place inside Pavilion Cafe.
Saturday 13 April, 6pm – 9pm
FREE event suitable for all the family. This is your chance to see the installation come to life as dusk arrives and the sculptures glow! Hear the stories about trees and enjoy musical entertainment from local choirs The Telegraph Community Choir and Dulwich Folk Choir, up and coming band, The Melodic and wonderful storyteller Sandra Agard. Pavilion Cafe will be open serving snacks and refreshments.
The workshops and event will take place outside the Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park, SE21.
After a winter like this, we’re delighted to see that the forecast is getting better this week – maybe this will be the beginning of spring!
We look forward to seeing you there.
