Once again, as we started planning in March, and because of the uncertainty of the situation due to covid-19, we do not have a full park programme this year. But we will be offering a few activities over the 24 hours in the park plus some online events: see the timetable below.
And we do urge you to take part in a small activity in your home or safely outdoors on your own or with your family and, where covid rules allow, with friends, hopefully in a beautiful place. Your participation will be a great support to Palestinian people who, as i write this are under a dreadful barrage from the Israeli military.
