Thank you for all of your support, you can still follow the Urban Nature Project and find out about any future fundraising events online. 

Thank you for joining us for this magical evening where music, art and conservation came together to call for a more environmentally enlightened future.

The evening saw Spell Songs perform to support the Urban Nature Project, helping to transform the Museum's five-acre outdoor site into a centre for conservation research and joining the UK wide endeavour to inspire a national urban biodiversity movement.

Created as a musical accompaniment to The Lost Words and The Lost Spells books the evening included contributions from authors Robert Macfarlane and Jackie Morris.

The evening was magnificent in every respect - beautiful heartfelt music, at one with Robert's finely honed words, breathtaking art from Jackie and so uplifting to see such commitment in children's art before and during… and the wonderfully worthwhile target of the Urban Nature Project giving some optimism for the future.
