Event Details

A fun-filled day celebrating the heritage of trees in Buckinghamshire.

Join us in a celebration of trees and Buckinghamshire’s green woodworking heritage. Find out fascinating facts about the Aylesbury Prune, the town’s endangered Black Poplars and many other trees through our mini exhibition and family activities. Meet Stuart King, the Bucks Bodger, who will talk about his many objects made from Bucks trees and regale his life as a green woodworker. Try your hand at wooden flower making in the style of traditional Romani craftmanship, which you can then decorate and take home. Listen to stories featuring woods and trees and take part in our PoeTree activity inspired by the trees and wooden objects in our brand new Discover Bucks galleries.

This activity is included in the Discover Summer Pass or Explorer Summer Pass, book your tickets today!

Under the Black Poplar Tree is one of many fantastic cultural events taking place over four days, from the 28 – 31 July 2022 as part of the Buckinghamshire Culture Open Weekend.
