About this event
Local film, local cast, local food. Come and join us for the premiere of a short film featuring the Ruskin Tree Walk, produced by independent filmmaker Lisa Thomson.
In this movie short, a group of volunteer presenters cast from the local community, provide compelling insights from leading experts about the Victorian influencer John Ruskin.
Ruskin – who lived in Herne Hill and Camberwell – was known for his views on nature and loved trees. Each segment of the walk is tied to a remarkable tree or interesting view within Ruskin Park. The film also features new illustrations by local artists and showcases our much-loved local park.
SE5 Forum for Camberwell and The Camberwell Society are delighted to present this film premiere of the Ruskin Tree Walk.
Book tickets here on Eventbrite for 12pm or 1pm on Saturday 21st Mayat The Cambria pub, 40 Kemerton Road, London SE5 9AR.
Tickets cost £10 (or £5 concessions). This includes a free drink and 20% discount on The Cambria’s food menu on the day on presentation of your ticket.
