Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

Keep Up-to-date

Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.

New venue for our Walks and Talks

Normansfield Theatre

We are delighted to announce our new programme of Walks and Talks for 2019 and to welcome you to a new venue for our Talks. The Normansfield Theatre in Teddington is a Grade II* Listed Theatre which was built originally as an entertainment hall in 1877 and completed in 1879. The theatre is a rare example of a private Victorian Theatre containing original painted scenery and other ornate fixtures and fittings.. It was part of the former home of Dr John Langdon Down. The building itself was refurbished and handed over to the Langdon Down Centre Trust in October 2003.

We are indeed fortunate to have this as our new home for Talks and look forward to seeing you in January , drinks will be served from 7.15 and the talks commence at 8.00pm
