by | Apr 20, 2018 | Featured Slider, Latest, News

The first ever Urban Tree Festival in London is planning to kick off this year between 18-20 May, celebrating street trees, public gardens and parks and the role they play in our lives.

The festival will contain a series of walks, talks and other activities, ranging from mindfulness sessions to photography walks, talking trails and stalking mulberries, all at a subsidies cost from their usual price (£10 per ticket rather than £15-£20).

The festival does, however, need a bit of help to get going. With the goal of £1,500, the crowd funding campaign currently stands at £990 with 9 days left to raise funds.

Trees for Cities aim to celebrate their 25th anniversary this year by matching every pledge made to the Urban Tree Festival up to £1,500, making the potential funds raised for Trees for Cities £3,000 overall.

Pledging £10 will qualify you for a subsidised ticket. The money raised will be spent in the following ways:

Subsidising 14 activities already scheduled  £1,950

Expected Festival costs – breakdown:

Insurances, permissions, venue hire and Chelsea Fringe registration  £320

Marketing, video, leaflets and domains £250

Recruiting volunteers & associated expenses £150

Administration, ticketing commission, bank charges £330
