Forest of Imagination

July 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Sunday 24 July, the Forest of Imagination team will be returning to our gardens to offer free workshops to all visitors.

Patchlarks have teamed up with musical story-maker Tim Godwin of Thrift to bring you a fantastic day of music, play, creativity and story.

Join us for our astonishing improvised musical show and discover strange characters, invented songs, impromptu birthday parties for oak trees… well maybe – no one ever knows what will happen but it’s always hilarious and beautiful.

Or dive into a brilliant creative workshop, using the ancient (and fictional) art of Patching to create miniature worlds from found natural materials and then sing invented songs about the remarkable stories that happen there.


Best for ages 6+
