It’s amazing what a difference a season makes, some collective action and a little bit of funding. The Coronation Fountain is now overflowing with flowers of every hue. Tuesday volunteer gardeners have put in a huge number of hours, transforming the outside spaces around the Hall on the north side of the park. Come and join the celebrations!

To mark the one-year anniversary since the fall of Kabul, Good Chance Theatre (creators of The Jungle and The Walk with Amal) will launch Fly With Me, an immersive, multi-city one day festival of kite flying. Spread across the UK and Europe, Fly With Me invites people everywhere to build and fly their own kites in an epic act of solidarity and welcome to the people of Afghanistan.
