London honours its greenery this month with the National Park City Festival celebrating the capital’s green spaces, wildlife habitats, green rooftops and waterways.
Taking place over nine days from 20-28 July 2019, the National Park City Festival hosts hundreds of free events across the city, from outdoor fitness sessions and live performances to bee-keeping and open water events for the family.
The events include walking tours and wildlife tours across the city; opportunities to visit roof gardens across the capital including Soho’s Ham Yard Hotel, Pontypool Place and the Barbican Conservatory; performances including Grass Men, a performance by Ashley Peevor in living costumes made from real grass, and Living Symphonies, a musical composition and installation in Epping Forest; and a wildlife photography exhibition, among others.
The National Park City Festival is part of The Mayor of London’s ongoing commitment to making the city greener, healthier and wilder. The Festival has been organised by Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, with the National Park City Foundation, the charity behind London National Park City.
