Wild In The City Festival 2024

Important Announcement: Venue and Date Changes for Wild in the City Festival

Due to unforeseen challenges and the loss of key staff in the run-up to the festival, we have had to make some changes to our plans, including the venue and dates.*

Celebrating People of Colour in Nature

Join us for two exciting days of learning, doing, and being in nature as we challenge myths about our relationship with nature and give space to voices less heard in the environmental field.

The second edition of our festival will be held 15th -16th June in Croydon. Over 2 days and 1 night of camping, we will celebrate people of colour in nature and step closer to decolonising the environmental field, through a programme bringing together a nature loving community of people of colour, for talks, walks, fireside conversation, natural history, bushcraft, art, yoga, mediation and much more.

Our home for the festival is a secluded woodland, full of birdsong and a tranquil lake and stream. Nestled in the Addington Hills area of Croydon, London’s largest area of heathland and a beautiful natural setting on the doorstep of open countryside.  Easily accessible from East Croydon station.

Wild in the City Festival
Want to experience community with like minded people of colour nature lovers? You’ll feel at home during our 2 days of talks, hikes, demonstrations, films, art and music. Get hands on, try new things out, share your skills, rest, relax, connect

Plus, hear from Black leaders and founders of Nature and Outdoor organisations…

Conference for Black and POC led organisations

A collective of Black and POC led nature/outdoor organisations will co-host a conference, to discuss the politics of leading whilst Black in the sector, why our work matters, the challenges and opportunities.  This is a unique opportunity to hear from pioneers opening up activities and engagement in a space which has traditionally seen us as not belonging.
