Germination: mandala make using found natural materials and picnic


We will walk through the forestry of Langdon Hills country park, guided by park wardens with talks about the importance of maintaining forestry and the essential role public green spaces have played throughout lockdown. Getting back to our roots, we will explore the natural landscape, its inhabitants and take in scenic views of the Land of the Fanns area; which stretches through Thurrock and beyond.

Following the guided tours there will be an artist-lead Mandala-making activity using naturally sourced materials as we get back to nature, reflect and rewild. Please bring a bag if you wish to gather materials on route.

The event will end with a picnic in the large open grassland.


Tickets are free but must be booked in advance.

A condition of booking is that all attending agree to follow our Covid-19 Guidelines

Only 30 places are available for each event so social distancing can be managed.
