Wilderness Festival


Adults don’t climb trees, do they?! Jack Cooke has spent the past year exploring cities from the tree tops, looking at the world from the vantage of a branch. He’s explored city trees, parks and gardens, roundabouts and riversides, discovering a secret garden in the sky.

We spend too much time looking down – looking at our feet, staring at our phones, and doing anything but looking up and around us. The Tree Climber’s Guide is about escapism and a fresh perspective – reconnecting our identity with the natural world and our green spaces, and getting a bird’s-eye view of life from the treetops. So what are you waiting for, it’s time to start climbing and exploring!
