Payments via the FHP website

You are now able to make payments to The Friends of Holland Park directly from this website. Payments may be made for new membership, renewing membership, event tickets, art exhibition entries and merchandise.

Payment is made through PayPal, but you are not required to have a PayPal account; you can make payment from your debit or credit card.

It is no longer possible to download an order form from this website and pay by cheque. We apologise if this is an inconvenience for you, but it makes good sense for The Friends administratively. Paid-up members will still receive an order form with their quarterly newsletters.

If you have any problems, please contact Rhoddy Wood on 020 7602 0304 or Rhoddy.wood@virgin.net.

Holland Park’s Cup of Tea

Holland Park has a long history of growing glorious camellias. This June it added Camellia sinensis, the plant that produces tea. Our speaker, Jonathon Jones, knows all about camellias and tea, because he established the first British tea plantation at the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall.

Tickets are £18, to include Janice Miles’ delicious canapés, wine, and we might even get a tea cocktail!

The Friends’ Nature Walks

Meet outside the Stable Yard at 9am on the first Saturday of each month.

We will have a one-and-a-half-hour stroll through the park looking at birds, plants, butterflies and park management of current interest. There is no charge and all are welcome without booking.  No dogs, please, as even well behaved ones on leads disturb the wildlife. We recommend you bring binoculars.

Ecology Events Sponsored by the Friends

Unless otherwise stated the meeting place is in the Ecology Centre near the Adventure Playground.

Come and explore the natural world we are lucky enough to have in Holland Park. Many of the talks, walks and events organised by the Ecology team are sponsored by the Friends so that they can be free for participants. Experts will help us discover things in the park that we may not notice for ourselves.


Thurs 27 Sept    Hedgehog talk. Must book. 6.30-8pm

Sat 13 Oct    Bird-ringing demonstration. Drop in at Wildlife Area. 7-11am

Sat 3 Nov    Fungi foray. Must book, 2-4pm

All these events are free, but you do need to book on ecology.centre@rbkc.gov.uk or 020 7938 8186.

The full Ecology programme can be found on www.rbkc.gov.uk/ecology
