        About a Tree was a project made possible by a generous donation from a local family. It brought together filmmaking, music (in partnership with The Philharmonia Orchestra) and nature as it encouraged participants to look closely at what’s living in Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill. The project culminated in a celebration evening at the Open Air Theatre in Regents Park where the short films created by participants were shown along with music inspired by trees. www.SupportTheRoyalParks.org
