Visitors to Regent's Park can explore giant tree houses, participate in debates and relax in swinging pods as part of the TreeHouse Gallery project.

The Royal Parks project, which runs until 6 September, comprises two tree-top structures built from naturally sourced and reclaimed materials.

A collection of ground-based structures, which include the Medicinal Hanging Gardens, are situated beneath the tree houses.

Inspired by the surrounding environment, the project encourages people to take an interest in nature through a free programme of activities, with more than 60 free workshops and events.

Highlights include:

  • Sunday 23 August, 4pm to 6pm William Wardlaw Rogers helps explore the impact of story-telling and how it shapes reality.
  • Saturday 29 August, 1pm to 3.30pm Tree Tales and Forest Fables from the award-winning story teller Sarah Mooney.
  • Sunday 30 August, 3pm to 4pm Tanya Jackson leads a workshop teaching folk songs and vocal harmony.
  • Saturday 5 September, 1pm to 3pm: Recycled arts and crafts workshop for children and adults.

Regent's Park manager Nick Biddle said: "The TreeHouse Gallery is a very unusual and original temporary installation in Regent's Park. It consists of two platforms that have been built in the trees and a variety of ground-based structures. It's an experience not to be forgotten."
