The Ealing Tree Festival, delivered by Trees for Cities in partnership with London Borough of Ealing, is inviting you to come and join the celebration of urban trees!
Back for it’s second year, the Ealing Tree Festival will celebrate all things urban trees through art, storytelling, talks, walks, workshops, music and activities for all.
The festival will be taking place on Saturday 17th June 2023 at Southall Park, Uxbridge Road, Southall, UB1 3AF.
Trees bring real benefits to our cities, and the local environment by helping to build greater resilience to the threats of climate change. According to UK charity Trees for Cities, each year London’s Trees remove 2.4 million tonnes of air pollution, including carbon dioxide dust and other toxins.
So, what better way to show your appreciation than by joining the festival of trees!
There will be a range of workshops taking place throughout the day between 11am and 4pm for the whole family to get involved in, including:
- All day: Steel Band
- 11.30am-2pm: Forest Bathing and Nature-Inspired Creative Writing Workshop
- 12pm-2pm: Embroider-tree Workshop
- 12pm-1pm: Tree Walk
- 12.30pm, 1.30pm, 3pm: Storytelling for All with Bernadette Russell
- 11.30am-1pm, 1.30pm-3pm: Natural pigments painting workshop
- 1-3pm: Face painting with Aga
And did we mention that its free? There’s no need to book so all you need to do is show up on the day.

Schools and Youth Engagement
During June, Trees for Cities will also be working with schools across Ealing to celebrate and educate pupils on the importance of planting and protecting urban trees in the borough.
They’ve put together a free resource which features plenty of fun ideas that pupils can do to get outside, explore green spaces and celebrate our wonderful urban trees.
