Exploring the Urban Forest with Paul Wood - Fitzrovia - Bloomsbury
6.15pm-8.15pm Wednesday 20 September Start: Goodge Street tube station
Launching a new series of Stalking Trees walkshops, we are delighted to welcome Paul Wood, author of London Street Trees, to entice you to Explore the Urban Forest in Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury.
On our walk, we shall encounter early nineteenth century streets in Fitzrovia with infill planting, planned boulevards in Bloomsbury and postwar regeneration. We shall see a range of different species, including the iconic London Plane Platanus x acerifolia (see specimen from Bedford Square above) and a range of other tree species planted at different times reflecting changing tastes and approaches to urban forest management.

At the end of last month we celebrated the inaugural Sound Walk Sunday to which more than 50 artist and producers contributed audio augmented walking pieces or listening walks.  We even got a mention on BBC Radio 6 Music’s Cerys Matthews’ show and a splendid send off at Made of Walking in La Romieu, in the southwest of France.

Sound Walk Sunday may have passed but we are maintaining the map and directory and updating both as further contributions are sent in - so why wait for the next Sound Walk Sunday,just follow this link to try out a walking piece.
At Made of Walking in La Romieu, south west France we recorded 6 Talking Walkinginterviews and met many thoughtful and creative walking artists.  In forthcoming bulletins we will be highlighting some of their work, but presently we want to encourage you to sneak an autumn break in Lyon (see map and aerial photo above) - when there, try out a CityTrek tour or catch up with ABI/ABO [art be in/art be out] poetic geographies.
