Participants must wear robust footwear, preferably walking boots, and, if it is raining, appropriate clothing. Please note that some sections of the walk are steep. Participants must provide contact details for Track and Trace purposes.

Please email the organiser, Liz Schafer, on to express interest and find out further details.

Liz Schafer is a Professor of Drama and Theatre Studies specialising in the performance history of the plays of Shakespeare, a writer who vividly responds to deforestation and climate disruption in the early modern period. Her performance history of The Merry  Wives of Windsor – a play that was written as Windsor Forest was turning into Windsor Park – explores theatrical representations of the natural environment onstage over five centuries.
