A Tree CelebrationA Tree Celebration

Saturday 9 November 2019 to Sunday 22 March 2020

To mark National Tree Week (23 November to 1 December) we share with you some of the hidden treasures from our art collection that celebrate trees. National Tree Week is the UK’s largest annual tree celebration, marking the start of the winter tree planting season (November to March each year).

The Tree Council, one of the UK’s leading charities for trees, first established National Tree Week in March 1975 in response to the national replanting required after the outbreak of Dutch Elm disease. Local charity City of Trees provides lots of opportunities for you to get involved and there is a wealth of trees to be discovered in Peel Park, just behind Salford Museum & Art Gallery.

Each section of the collection has been explored to share some intriguing items; from paintings and decorative art, to costume and social history. Do you know how Victorian gentlemen protected their moustaches from tea? Did you know we hold a monarch’s pair of stockings in the collections – but whose? Visit the exhibition to find out!
