A procession around the park took place as the leaves fell, to celebrate the Autumn. Led by the Future Machine with readings and conversations by Esi Eshun, tree poems by Jo Roach and conversations about the park by Park Ranger Ricard Zanoli and Weeds and Seeds by May DeGrace. Stopping at seven trees in the park to represent the seven sisters myth and the story of the name of Seven Sisters Road that runs alongside the park.

The day ended with a music performance with the musicians that have created the sounds of the Future Machine that respond live to the weather. Led by musicians Alexandre Yemaoua Dayo, David Kemp, Miles NCube, Terese and the Future Machine.
