Please join us this Sunday June 27th 2021 from 1-5 pm on the Heath to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Hampstead Heath Act of 1871. #heath150

Meeting point: Parliament Hill Farmers’ Market 1pm.
(from where we will move up to Kite Hill and then on to South End Green end of the Heath.)

Please bring your banners, instruments, street chalk art, whatever celebratory gear you fancy.

Forum ’71 was established in June 2020 to promote the anti-enclosure ethos of the iconic act which we believe is being undermined by The City of London Corporation’s imposition of compulsory entry charges to bathe in the ponds.

Our campaign is called Save Our Ponds.

For 200 years the ponds have been freely accessible for generations of Londoners and our visitors.
