Woodland Walk / Nature & Climate Book Chat

Books and phones are scattered across a grey kitchen table, next to a biscuit tin and a cup of tea

This is a fun, informal opportunity to meet other people who are interested in reading books and poetry about nature, climate and related issues. Come and hear about the books and poems that others have read and to share your enthusiasm for something you've read (or are just curious about but haven't got round to reading yet!).

This is for anyone from the avid reader to the just curious.

The event is led jointly by Wytham's Youth Educator in Residence, Kim Polgreen, and Writer in Residence, Alice Little.

In the colder months we will warm up with a walk through the woods with stops along the way to chat about the books and poems we have brought along to share. We'll end up with tea and biscuits in the Chalet kitchen before stomping back down the hill to the car park.

Here is the list of books that we've discussed so far. We are happy to revisit any of those - the discussion is always new, and the people change each time.

We aren't charging but if you'd like to make a small financial contribution to the biscuit fund on the day, feel free - we have lots of teenagers visiting Wytham who need biscuits!

Meet at the main Woods car park at OX2 8QQ (accessed via Wytham Village) at 2pm. We will be heading up the field to start with. If you get to the car park late, call us (number will be on instruction email you get the day before) and we'll let you know where we are. We will finish at the Chalet by 4pm, and then it's a 20min walk down the hill to the car park.
