Pop Up ForestIn celebration of Car Free Day, Seven Dials is putting a ban on traffic and instead focusing on the natural world with a Pop Up Forest. Presented by Camden Council, the event will see cars and taxis replaced with trees. As well as sixty trees temporarily potted in the area, there will also be an array of activities and music: the London Orchard Project will be on site with their Orchard Juice Bar, providing a refreshing thirst quencher for shoppers; Kings College London will provide air quality activities and advice, and help visitors to create 'breath drawings; and Dr Bike will provide free bicycle maintenance. Plus, Camden Council present the Air Quality Bubble Map, which highlights how easy it is to walk and cycle within a one mile 'bubble' from homes, schools or workplaces.

 

About Seven Dials

The 'Seven Dials' refers to the layout of the cobbled streets in this scenic part of Covent Garden which includes Monmouth Street, Earlham Street and Mercer Street. The seven streets radiate out from the central sundial - which can still be seen today but is a replica of the original. More about Seven Dials
