Previous events

Islington Ecology Centre run many events throughout the year. In 2022 they have pond dipped, searched for creatures in the meadows, held numerous guided walks for different groups, ran a cyanotype printing workshop and much much more. They advertise their events on posters around the park and in the Ecology Centre. Please get in touch with them or look for posters to find out about upcoming events.

2022 saw the return of Apple Day, a fantastic yearly community event we run with Islington Ecology Centre. We juiced hundreds of delicious apples grown in Kent, enjoyed live music from brilliant local bands and invited local artists to sell their homemade products. And the mayor came along to join the fun too! Here are a few photos from the day.

Hopefully we'll see you at next year's Apple Day!
