Abstract

As part of the Woodland Trust's Tree Charter Day Festival the artist planted a new Cherry Tree in Christchurch Gardens in Nottingham City to replace the one blown down in a storm earlier in 2020. The Tree Charter Cryer was part of this ceremony during lockdown.
Locke worked in collaboration with the artist Bruce Asbestos to develop the role of The Tree Charter Crier. Drawing from a rich history of painting, sculpture, popular culture, folklore and fairy tales, Bruce mixes everyday objects with high art, fashion, and aspects of popular culture. Caroline wrote Tree Charter 'cries' based on the 10 principals of The Woodland Trust's Tree Charter and Bruce designed the costume based on traditional Town Crier attire. On Tree Charter Day Bruce performed the Tree Cries whilst ringing Locke's Significant Tree bell tuned to the frequency of the Southwell Bramley Apple.
