The Clockwork Garden – Farewell To The Seed

At the closing of our most successful adventure trail and magical interactive exhibition to date, we invite you to explore the beautiful gardens at Quarry Bank, Manchester and help the Mechanical Seed launch back to Planet Mecca_Donk. Guided by one of our illustrated maps, come on an adventure with our curious Garden Philosophers. Join them to investigate the science, mythology and mechanics of gardens through workshops and storytelling – and report back to the Mechanical Seed which has sprouted and unfurled into a magnificent magnetic heuristic exhibition.

Travelling through all six dimensions to be with us for the week of rituals and festivities are our Garden Philosophers:  Tim Godwin, Oliver Wallace, and Stephen Whitehead,
