The Peace Woodland


Lichfield Cathedral is working in partnership with Lichfield Historic Parks to create a new Peace Woodland in Beacon Park. The Peace Woodland will be a permanent living artwork created by Lichfield Cathedral’s Artist-in-residence Peter Walker. During the year, the Parks team will save 1,918 local trees which would otherwise be felled. Volunteers will pot them ready to start planting on Armistice Day, 11 November 2018. The Peace Woodland will open at Easter 2019, a time to rejoice in new life, hope and the promise of peace on earth.

At the heart of the Peace Woodland will be a bronze plaque as a dedication to peace; for £25 you can add a name – your own, a friend or a family member – to be permanently inscribed In The Name of Peace.

Dedicate a name to Peace online: Don't miss when the 1,918 trees are brought to Lichfield Cathedral in August, creating a temporary forest and stunning artwork around the Cathedral (The Great Exhibition 'Imagine Peace' 17 - 27 August 2018).
