[CANCELLED] We are sorry to announce this event has been postponed until further notice due to the current situation with COVID. We will reschedule when it is safe to gather again.
A performance, a walk, an opportunity to experience the unique personality of this public space after dusk, when the gates are closed and we have exclusive access, safely locked in. Finding the pinnacle of gardenlessness, the trees after leaf fall, the aftermath of ash dieback, the humbled beech, the viewing mound, the shape of water at night, the echo of a playground without kids, and other surprises.
Soup will be served afterwards in the LUX conservatory.
Assisted by Yasmine Aminanda and Ning Chou.
Limited to 20 people, booking essential.
You will be sent further instructions when you book but you should dress warmly with appropriate footwear as it might be muddy.
