Jonathan's Mistletoe Diary

February 15, 2006

Walking with mistletoe nearly makes the news

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jonathan Briggs @ 7:13 am

The annual Mistletoe Walk at Hampton Court Palace takes place this weekend, led by the Palace Estates Team and Tyrrell Marris, who heads up the Richmond Mistletoe Action Plan. Hampton Court has one of the best mistletoe colonies in London, known for at least 200 years, mostly in the Lime Avenues.

The walk was very nearly publicised on ITV’s regional London News programme yesterday evening – but the satellite link for the live broadcast failed just as the piece began. So, in lieu of TV coverage, here’s the gen:

  • Saturday 18th February, meet at the Lion Gate entrance on Hampton Court road (opposite the entrance to Bushy Park) at 11.00am. As well as seeing the mistletoe there will be a special visit to the Palace’s 17th century Ice House.
