Celebration of 1865 Inclosure Act

Forest Recreation Ground, Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham, NG5 2BU
Celebration of 1865 Inclosure Act


Sunday 18 October 2015 from 1.30pm

This event is to celebrate the passing of 150 years since the Inclosure Oak was planted on the Forest to commemorate the Act of 1865. A new oak tree will be planted by Kate Ashbrook of the Open Spaces Society.

The Sheffield City Giants, 14 feet tall, will process up the promenade and dance, supported by a local Morris team who will also perform. There will be an exhibition of pictures and documents of the 130 acres given to Nottingham citizens, forever, as Allotted Recreation Ground. These consist of Queens Walk, Queens Walk Recreation Ground, Victoria Park, Robin Hood Chase, St Ann's Hill, Elm Avenue, the Arboretum, Waterloo Promenade and The Forest. Also parts of our two (listed) Victorian cemetaries, the General and the Rock.

Nottingham Forest Football Club, also 150 years old this year, will too have an exhibition in the new Homemade Pavilion Cafe on the park.
