Roots and Shoots: Makes a Splash! Open Day
Roots and Shoots Makes a Splash! Open Day on Saturday 10th June 2023 brings the delights of aquatic life from around the world into the heart of Lambeth. Always a hugely popular community event, this year’s summer festival celebrating nature may be our most ambitious yet, with something to delight all ages.
There’s pond dipping in the Wild Garden, a planted aquarium gallery, aquarium-building demonstrations, floristry and art workshops, children’s storytelling, face painting, and a magical mechanical dragon. Stalls are selling arts, crafts, accessories, jewellery, ceramics and plants, as well as homemade cakes, delicious vegan food and candy floss.
Fascinating talks in the Main Hall include The Wonder of Frogs from Kim Le Breuilly of the British Herpetological Society, Project Coral from the Aquarists at The Horniman Aquarium, an aquarium setup demonstration from famed aquascaping youtuber George Farmer, and a naturalistic aquarium biotope setup demonstration from ZSL-trained Tai Streitman.
Says Roots and Shoots director and founder Linda Phillips MBE, “We’re so pleased to invite the community back to Roots and Shoots once again! Our frog days have always been one of our most popular events, so we’re delighted to bring them back bigger than ever, and highlight the enchanting lives of aquatic life.”
Saturday 10th June 2022, 11am to 4pm.
Admission: £2 for adults, £1 children.
Tickets: cash and card on the gate.
