Wild fun and bushcraft at Tarzy Wood Festival

A new community-led festival is taking place at Tarzy Wood in Wanstead this Sunday (16th July 10am-4pm).

There will be stalls, live music, food and drink, free activities with bushcraft workshops, bug hunting and storytelling sessions. The Wanstead Society, the Wren Conservation Group and Wild Wanstead will also be taking part.

Adults can also rise 100 foot above Wanstead in a cherry picker through the tree canopy and take in panoramic views of the City as part of a “Tree Canopy Experience.”

Philip Woodhouse, Chairman of the City of London Corporation’s Epping Forest Committee said: “This is the first time we have held a festival at Tarzy Wood. It is a great opportunity to celebrate this beautiful wood and introduce locals to what it has to offer.”

Tarzy Wood can be found on the junction of Wanstead High Street and New Wanstead Road.

The City of London Corporation manages over 11,000 acres of green space across London and south east England, including Epping Forest, Hampstead Heath and Burnham Beeches, with many of its sites designated National nature Reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest for their unique ecology and rare plant species.

Epping Forest is London and Essex’s largest open space, attracting nearly five million visits a year.
