The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

Throughout history, trees have determined the tools we use, the boats we build, the stories we tell about the world and ourselves, the songs we sing, and some of our most important rituals. As such, our lives are intertwined with the trees and woodlands around us.

In his new book The Heart of the Woods, Wyl Menmuir travels the length and breadth of Britain & Ireland to meet the people who plant trees, the ecologists who study them, those who shape beautiful objects and tools from wood, and those who use them to help others.

Join us for an afternoon in conversation with Wyl Menmuir and Opt Indie Books, at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre, where we’ll be building on the themes of the book by discussing the enduring legacy of iconic trees, and how our relationship with them has changed over time, and the ways in which our future is interconnected with theirs.

The talk will start at 1 pm followed by audience Q&A and book signing. Books will be available to purchase at the event.

This is a pay as you feel event, but we strongly recommend prebooking, as spaces are limited.
