Events & Booking

What will you do during the first ever Urban Tree Festival?

With the help of over 70 generous supporters we have had a successful crowd funding campaign.  That and match funding from charity Trees for Cities, the only charity working on an international and national scale to create greener cities, means we can run the Urban Tree Festival events and subsidise ticket prices.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite at just £10 plus a booking fee (except where indicated) – limited spaces available so book early!

Before turning up to an event please check below that it is still running, one or two events may have been withdrawn, others added, since you last looked at this page.
