Starting this year in Islington and inspired by the London Mayor's tree planting initiative, LFT Productions …’Brings forest magic to the inner city’ with the LITTLE FIR TREE PROJECT.
This exciting project links the Arts and the Environment with the aim of increasing awareness of the importance of trees in our cities, complementing the Woodland Trust’s inner-city tree planting strategy.
During October a series of ten free ‘Tree Awareness’ workshops took place for Primary schools in Thornhill Square, Islington, to an enthusiastic response.
At the heart of the project is a new uplifting family musical called Little Fir Tree based on the Hans Christian Andersen story, re-imagined and composed by Megg Nicol and David Stoll. Two concert performances, with Sylvester McCoy (The Hobbit Trilogy, Doctor Who), cast and orchestra, are to be premiered on December 18th 2018 at Kings Place at 4.30pm and 7:30pm as part of their Christmas Celebrations.
