Friends of the Happy Man Tree invite you to a Happy Man Festivitree on Bank Holiday Monday, 31 August, 1pm to 6pm, Woodberry Grove, N4 2RD
On 31 August it is 100 days since Berkeley Homes and Hackney Council tried to cut down the Happy Man Tree (only to be stopped on the day by some persistent Friends of the Happy Man Tree!) … and we are celebrating the nomination for the Woodland Trust's Tree of the Year!
Please join us for an afternoon of activities to celebrate.
EXPERIENCE THE HAPPY MAN TREE IN ALL ITS GLORY!
FAMILY SPACE – tree-related art, stories and fun.
WORDS – including a talk by Russell Miller, from Hackney's Tree Musketeers and the Ancient Tree Forum) at 3.15pm.
MUSIC - performances from the brilliant Radfax Band and Art Terry - singer/songwriter and presenter of Is Black Music on Resonance FM.
DESIGNING FOR TREES - Join architects to explore how we can build around trees. Take a look at the 3D model that shows how Phase 3 of the Woodberry Down development can be adapted to retain the Happy Man Tree alongside the provision of all the intended housing with minimum delay.
This is a socially distanced event - sanitiser will be available and there will be distancing guidelines. Please wear masks.
