The cherry tree was planted in Tavistock Square in 1967, by the then Mayor of Camden, Cllr. Millie Miller, in remembrance of the victims, past and present, of the atomic bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6th and 9th August 1945. Participants are invited to bring flowers to lay beneath the tree during the ceremony.

People are also invited to picnic in the Square after the Ceremony.
