About the event

Throughout this beautifully illustrated talk, Julian explores the story of the ancient forest of Selwood, told through its remaining ancient trees and surviving customs – living links to our rich history. Julian has recorded the oldest trees in the Selwood Forest area, gathering acorns from its ancient oaks – living links to the ancient forest – to replant as part of the ‘Reviving Selwood Forest’ project.
