Welcome to the Forest of Arden  


Last year, with your help, we planted a virtual Forest of Arden to celebrate our touring production of As You Like It. It was so much fun that we have decided to keep it growing.   

We’d like to thank you all for the lovely pictures sent in from all over the world and we have decided to turn ‘The Forest of Arden’ into a poster that we will retail through our online ‘print on demand’ service.

Tips for taking a good picture: 

  • Try to centre the tree in the middle of the image
  • Try to avoid people or animals in the image
  • Aim to focus on just one tree, rather than taking a landscape shot
  • Have fun and be creative!
