Woodcraft Folk: The first 90 years Exhibition
This special exhibition at City Hall looks at this youth movement founded by Leslie Paul in 1925.
He came up with the idea as a young man living in Catford, south London, of creating a new kind of organisation for young people. Paul was inspired by Native Americans and wanted to give city children the chance to enjoy outdoor life and learn about the natural world.
The woodcraft Folk is open to both boys and girls. It is based on democratic and peaceful principles of co-operation, international friendship and education for social change.
Come and find out how Woodcraft Folk has evolved over the years and it is still thriving today thanks to the generosity of adult volunteers.
