When This Tree Blossoms 2024

Meet with the Future Machine and celebrate the blossoming cherry trees for the sixth year. For 2024 we are going to attempt to rewild Christ Church Gardens by asking you to bring along your own puppet creatures and cardboard plants. All ages are welcome, children must be accompanied by an adult. 

From 2pm: Meet Future Machine and leave a message for the future.

3-4pm: Join us as we repopulate the place – bring along home-made plants and animals and fantastical ideas for the future rewilding of Christ Church Gardens, made from whatever rubbish you have at home. We finish with a grand group photo with Future Machine under the blossoming trees at 4pm. Refreshments will be provided.

Rewilding puppets are being made with local children as part of workshops taking place with Toy Library and Primary’s Build Create Play at All Souls and as part of our ongoing collaboration with Mellers Primary School.

We will also be launching and displaying The Cabinet of Curious Places, telling the story of Future Machine and When the Future Comes. It will be on display from 18 – 20 April in Gallery One at Primary as part of Primary’s Nourishment Programme.
